A lot of the stories are smallish moments from American history, and since I am not American I don't know the real story. I'm pretty sure this is a terrible way to learn about it. Great show though.

Very nice show! Only one thing, they can get drunk, but why can't they say "fuck"? I don't get American TV.

Hahaha oh good lord, who came up with the concept to this show?! This is so fucked up but oooooooooooh so hilarious. Great stuff and you MIGHT even learn the odd thing if you are not American. :D

As good as the show is, I'd originally thought that the storytellers were actual historians and college professors who were trying to give their lessons while drunk. It loses a bit to find out that they are just comedians reading from a script. Still, the reenactments are consistently hysterical, and I love to watch the actors trying to time their lines.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
