I prefer the musical but this was great as well. I've read the book and it was pretty much spot on! (compared to other adaptations).


I saw the movie version of this a few years back when it was originally released & thought it was...fine. But I must say, I really thought this BBC adaptation of the story was really good. Very well written, acted & produced. One I`d recommend most definitely.


honestly. this is way more boring without the songs.


Super well done. I love that it has the time to really flesh the characters out and give us a better sense of their motivation.


Amazing. I remember seeing the original broadway production in my younger days. This adaptation was well done. Do miss the songs though. Highly recommend it.


Some great performances in this series. I really liked the female leads as they commanded your attention and were able to make you feel for them. I wasn’t as convinced by the male leads. I like a lot of what Dominic West has done, I just feel he is the same person each time. I had a hard time seeing him as the character he was meant to portray. Overall a really well done adaption. I am not a huge musical fan, so this suited me a lot more.


Guess it's time to dream a dream once again.....

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!
