    A warm hearted look at instability and pressure. I'm three episodes in and it's improving with every minute, adding layers and revealing more heartbreak and kindness in equal measure.


    and another great show with actual content instead of stereotypes got cancelled ... it's sad to see that HBO seems to care only about the money and not about the artistic value. One would think that they have enough "blockbuster shows" to also make space for at least some more niche shows that may not draw so much viewers but please reviewers and people who are not willing to put the IQ on suspend while watching shows... unfortunately it becomes a bit of a trademark of HBO to cancel shows (rome, deadwood, enlightened) ... why should we at all start to watch a new one?!


    I'm so glad I had the chance to watch it, so sad it was cancelled :(


    "This is a show where you are able to feel so many emotions. You feel happy, sad, angry..." Yeah, I mostly felt angry at how bad it was. ;)


    Uncomfortable & raw. "Enlightened" illustrates our need for connection while trying to stand straight on the balance beam between openness and defensiveness.


    I think this might be the best written show on TV at the moment. Warm, witty and kind. I like to save them up and just absorb them all at once.


    If you're still unsure if you should watch the show, the A.V. Club wrote an article to get you to do so :): Enlightened is TV’s best show right now—and it needs more viewers http://www.avclub.com/articles/enlightened-is-tvs-best-show-right-nowand-it-needs,92934/


    This is a show where you are able to feel so many emotions. You feel happy, sad, angry... It's one of those that shows to you how great a simple story can be and how much you can learn just while the show goes on. And when you realize... You're already in love and there's no turning back.

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me 👋 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 🙈

    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!
