This might possibly be my favourite TV Drama ever. Coach Taylor might just be the most upstanding man to ever appear on our TV screen.


Love this show and its characters. I've even grown to understand and possibly watch some real football this Fall.


Very few shows can pull at my heartstrings like this one does. You can't help but fall in love with it.

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!
