Why the need to make up an extra story about cottaging? ITV can't seem to stop gratuitously inserting gay characters into period drama, and I say that as gay myself . . .

Although I watched the three seasons I always came away feeling somewhat disappointed, nay, frustrated by James Norton's wishy-washy insubstantial character compared to Robson Green's but at the same time felt a sense of loss when Norton left the show and wondered if the show would continue without him. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode without James Norton and must admit I didn't miss him at all. I look forward to seeing how Tom Brittney will fill the role and have no doubt he will bring his own thing to the show.

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!
