Things get more complicated when one of Jamie's new drivers, from the city, learns a close buddy has nearly died in a towing accident during a snowstorm. Ken Monkhouse, who is Vancouver-based, and far more experienced compared to Rob, is working only on commission, and having to hunt for work himself frustrates him, but has to put everything into perspective when he heads to the hospital and comes face to face with the reality of the career he has chosen, and a buddy who has lost his leg, while desperately trying to save the other leg, and was full conscious and aware through the ordeal when it was filmed on the news. To make matters worse, Adam and Hugo must team up with Al and his new driver, Gord, to free up traffic after a multi-truck accident blocked the Coq, as well as racing against each other to get the better cut of the earnings.

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!
