Awesome show. Finally a reality show about actual talent and abilities. Not too much drama. My favorite reality show is the NFL, next to that, its Ink Master. They do have some sappy drama from time to time, but its not all that bad, since it helps you pick out the artists that you want to root for. I'm not that big on cooking shows, and I hate singing and dancing shows, so this is perfect. I have no tatoos, and never intend on getting any, but I really respect these guys and gals talents.


Can't get this show to add to progress no matter how many times I mark as watched??? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated:)


No matter how many episodes I've watched or mark as watched, I cannot get this series to be added to progress list (under watched, it shows up in progress under collected???). If anyone has a remedy for this please let me know:)

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

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!
