I quite rarely post my opinion on TV show, but this one is a masterpiece! Abolutely stunning actining not only from the lead actors which are beyond amazing! I love the cinematographics I love the acting, I love the dynamic between all characters and I love the fact that all this is based on true story! I don't think that someone else have ever done a better job of recreating the life of a historical persona. The lead character played by Suranne Jones is so captivating - very smart, well educated and brave woman who has been born in time which do not match her unstopable and courageous spirit. If that doesn't make you watch it, I don't know what will

Not really my kind of show, but I did enjoy watching it.

Great show! Well acted, directed and the dialogue is excellent. The story is based on a true story and extremely fascinating. I think they could have tightened the storytelling a bit, but it is although enjoyable and gets you hooked right away. A loving handiwork all in all; I long for the next season as BBC ordered yet another eight episodes! :smiling_face_with_3_hearts:

Looks pretty interesting. I'm sure it'll have all the lesbian fans flocking to it like Killing Eve.

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!
