Absolute gold!!! Popped up on a watched list, forever grateful. Bring on a third series!


I hate Jim, ruins the show every single time he shows his face...


Brilliant show. Well thought out characters and a laugh for anyone of any age.


Such a fun show. Jim Bell is a particularly great character in this.




Jim is the best character on TV. LOVE HIM


Now the 6th season on going, i hope to see grandma


This is such a fantastic show, I am dragging out the episodes so I can enjoy each in its own glory. Simon is wonderfully entertaining and adorable all at once. As usual, I want him all to myself.


I hope they'll have another year, i love it. And now a 6th season...

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!
