wow what a suspenseful six hours that were! BBC can't do no wrong LITERALLY. Dark, intense, riveting and so scary but totally worth it. I was literally so edgy the whole time of watching it and thats how utterly GOOD it was.

Dark, suspenseful, scary, impossible to put down. Be warned, this contains some nasty stuff, but it's a truly excellent drama.

I saw the entire tvshow in two weeks. Very intense, better first season

Outstanding British drama. Recently watched both seasons and I really hope there will another. Perfectly delivered, I loved it.

This show is fantastic up there with very best that has ever produced WATCH IT you won't be disappointed PS it's obviously aimed at an adult audience not family friendly dispute show title ..

I watched this belatedly despite many recommendations. The performances (especially Sarah Lancashire) are all top notch as is the script, the direction and everthing else. This series is dark, funny, brutal and so very human. You go from laughter to shock to tears in one episode. The entire series is truly a tour de force. Episode 3 in paticular is really brutal and harrowing, but even though later epsiodes aren't as graphic they still leave you shocked and hollow. Even the resolution, whilst it may bring tears, still leaves you under no illusions that these people are now broken. Many people wouldn't expect me to get so involved in a series. This did it though. I was shocked and appalled at the inhumanity and yet moved to tears when the warmth and humanity shone through. This was a joy to watch, laugh, cry and endure.

Can't wait for series 2

This show is absolutely fantastic.

What a fantastic show, gritty working class English accents and all. The acting is spotless and the story lines are incredible with their insidious things happening in quaint towns vibe. 2nd season is shaping up to be excellent as was the first.

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!
