Really love this show. Just finished watching the whole thing again. This is not only great comedy, this is about the people, their life and everyday problems. There arent't a lot of sitcoms you can watch more than once, this is definately one. And if you haven't watched it, well - what are you wating for ?

A great show that I could never get tired of. Some idiot put it on a list called 90's Sitcoms you must admit were pretty bad. No way is this show bad.

My favorite sitcom. Clean and fun comedy.

20 Years old & I still have to laugh every single time I watch it ;D Modern comedy series can not live up to the standard of this show. Without a doubt the best sitcom ever!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
