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.


Arguably my favorite "long runtime" drama I have ever watched, Friday Night Lights will appeal to most everyone in one way or another. There are so many characters, all who have so much varying depth and are really able to relate and connect to. Sure this is a "football" show. But it's also a family show. It's a show that focuses on all walks of life and really tries to dive into everyone individually. Every character evolves drastically over the five seasons, including Coach Taylor who is the pinnacle of any role model that was ever on television. He puts everyone before himself, even while the story backs him into tough situations, and the audience witnesses how he does what is best for everyone around him. The first season is my favorite season of any show I have every watched, but afterwards the story remains of equal caliber. Average Season Review: 8.8/10 Recommendation - Must See (for Everyone)


Great show when it came out. Not a 10 for me because of one of the seasons I didn't particularly care for but overall extremely solid.


best show I've ever watched!!!

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!
