It's a funny and relatable show. Family issues, especially some unique to 1st and 2nd generation immigrant families. One of the best shows out right now. No formulaic sitcom tropes, which is great to see

its a fun show. its fast, its short and if you live in toronto (specially immigrants), its very relatable. p.s. Jung is really, really hot. is it just me?

I'm enjoying this show a lot. It's a sitcom revolving around a family, but not all members live in the same building—instead, they're close-knit and often see their lives intertwine. It doesn't try to counter this with a bunch of cheesy "touching" moments, either. Oh, and did I mention that it's hilarious?

Kim's Convenience and Schitt's Creek are the two best comedies currently airing - hooray for Canadian original content!

It's just delightful. I can't tell you how much a show like this reminds me that not everything is the same and it's still worth popping your head into something that, if the banner picture is to believed, would make you think it's a kind of canned series of jokes_but now with Asian characters!_. Nope. This is laugh out loud consistency not just with the main characters, but in letting the support shine. Authentic scenarios draw out equal responses and keep you feeling part of the family instead of watching for where you assume things are headed. I'm proud of the creators and will be advocating for this show at least as hard as I do my other Canadian favorite Letterkenny.

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!
