First comment? Love this show! It's really entertaining, but don't watch when you're hungry! EDIT: Casey Webb is cool enough, but nowhere near a worthy successor to Adam Richman. Casey can handle hot challenges fairly well, but he can't do a lot of the size ones. I think maybe it's fair to say there's more/bigger/faster challanges than when Adam was doing this 10 years ago, but given the LARGE amount of competitive eaters in existence, Casey doesn't cut 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!
