[Amazon] Da Vinci's early biographers softened the painter's relationships with his apprentices, and in the 19th century it was invented a romance with a woman. In 2021, this show resurrects Caterina de Cremona to build an unnecessary police drama. The life and enormous work of a character like Leonardo Da Vinci is interesting enough not to need fictional situations and characters to be invented around it.

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!
