Watching the show. Mac was always humble but the new Mac is arrogant. Ruined it.


I tried to give it a shot, but this show is just terrible. The writing is awful and this new Mac is not good.


The brainy things MacGyver does to get out of sticky situations, well they are things that aren't too special. Like mixing alcohol and fire or knowing a paper clip can unlock handcuffs. This MacGyver doesn't do anything too special. Michael in Burn Notice was more MacGyver like.

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!
