**MY THOUGHTS ON LITTLE BOY BLUE:** _**-WARNING: Spoilers Below-**_ This was such a beautiful, heart wrenching show that is based on a true story. As much as I loved this I also really wish the events that took place in it never really happened, the world really is a wicked place. I'm glad they managed to show the story and place it into a show for everyone to see yet manage to do it in a way that wasn't harmful to the family. As usual Stephen Graham was absolutely phenomenal and manages to bring his character to life. He is such a brilliant actor. Every show I have ever watched him in he performs insanely well and always gives me goosebumps. This show from start to finish kept me captivated and honestly broke my heart to see a family in so much pain, I honestly hope to god they found their comfort now. There's not much else to really say about this show, it was beautifully created whilst staying true to the events that happened and not being disrespectful. It is definitely worth a watch especially if you're a fan of Dramas that are based on true stories. I'll always remember this one. **Overall rating: 7/10**

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!
