Great News is really great. One of the best new sitcoms of the entire season.

'Great News' is a big disappointment. Just a bunch of annoying characters doing silly things mixed with SJW comments here and there. The only redeemable thing about this show is Portia, Nicole Richie nailed it :)

Great show! Not something you'd make 10 seadons of, but I would have loved a few more.

Huh. So it's a comedy about a live TV show which gets a new boss from _corporate_. And Tina Fey is on it. I guess they called it _Great news_ because _30 Rock II_ was too obvious?

Nicole Richie CRUSHED it! Nice series but can clearly can see why it got cancelled.

Fresh, funny. Really loved it.

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!
