I am so hooked on this show! It appeals to both the business man in me and the nerd in me :)


I finally got why I love this show so much. Not because of computer stuff and not because of business stuff. I love it because everyone in the show feels _real_. The dramatic stare and silence for a minute are absent here (well, except for Joe, but that's part of his charm). Characters act fast and natural, their small talk is believable – never once I've seen a show which portrays such things so perfectly. Hell, this is a rare kind of a show where I laugh at the jokes, not at how terrible they are. And only after that I should mention that, yeah, there's some computer stuff and business stuff which I like too.


This show had big shoes to fill replacing breaking bad in it's time slot. So far, it's doing well. Very, very character driven, yet in a way that isn't so slow that it bores me.

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!
