This is why I love Trakt so much, I discover new tv shows almost every day that looks interesting!


Although the story felt stretched out in the middle and rushed in the end, Last Resort did get a proper run and ending despite cancelation. I'm not usually a big fan of conspiracies and army / covert ops, but this was entertaining and slightly different because it kept challenging the notions of right and wrong, in a context where any action could be considered both depending on how you look at it and what your priority is.


Great Pilot, added to my watchlist

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!
