The Best Series If You Grew Up In The 2000s (Including Malcolm in the Middle)

The O.C.

Sometimes a little bit of teen drama is exactly what I need. The story brings strong reminiscence of high school, filled with values about family and friendships. There’s always something positive about this show, maybe it’s because it’s always sunny in the Orange County. It brings the best feelings and no matter how many times I’ve watched it, I could do it all again. Its worthy successor is “Gossip Girl”, which was aired little bit later and I just love both shows so much.

Charmed

With all female leads, consisting of three sisters and a perfect balance between real life and fantasy, Charmed was easily one of my favorite things to watch. With such different personality types, everyone could always pick a favorite sister and with their witchcraft, everyone wanted a little bit of that magic for themselves.

Prison Break

The idea of breaking out of prison, or anything similar to it, hasn’t really been broadcasted on TV before. So, when Prison Break first aired, I think it’s safe to say that everyone was glued to the TV and just couldn’t wait to see what will the next episode hold. Even though the main characters are supposed to be hard-core criminals, they are extremely lovable. The show is very unpredictable, even if you expect the unexpected, you’ll still probably end up surprised.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
