I actually grew up reading the original book series in 1993 and loved every single one. Reminded me why I had loved History so much. So when they made a TV series and I accidently stumbled across this on BBC (I was a father by then of course) I enjoyed it, the songs are catchy and kids know them as there based on recent releases, the episodes are fun and in this day and age, this really helps childern learn about histroy in a fun-fact filled way. With the 6th series now on CBBC in the UK, theres plenty more to Horrible Histories to learn.

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!
