Drain the Oceans

National Geographic 2018

Maritime mysteries -- old and new -- come to life in this 10-episode series, combining scientific data and digital re-creations to reveal shipwrecks, treasures, and sunken cities on the bottom of lakes, seas and oceans around the world. Innovative technology allows viewers to see what lies on the floors of large bodies of water such as the Gulf of Mexico, the Nile, the Indian Ocean, the Baltic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean as if they had been drained. Then, in a quest to explain natural wonders and man-made catastrophes, stories tell of how vessels sank, what ancient geological formations reveal about life on Earth, where Nazi secrets now reside, and why so many continue to search for the legendary city of Atlantis.

Currently there is confusion over episode 1x10 Villains of the Underworld. I have been trying to get it straightened out at theTVDB.com but no success yet. This episode was originally listed as the series premiere by NatGeo, but now it is not part of this series at all. NatGeo has another series, "Best of: Drain the Oceans", which include this episode as the premiere and other "Drain the ..." documentary movies from years past. People keep editing the TVDB and now have it as 1x02. Please be patient as I'm trying to get it straitened out as quickly as possible. For those that are trying to keep up with this show, the season finale "Malaysia Airlines 370" will air Monday, July 30, 2018 @ 9:00 PM.

I'm a big fan of documentaries, especially those that deal with history. But I do not like the at times lurid style.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
