Disappointing finale. And what the hell that modern song at the end?

I think it's now (s03) much worse than it used to be.

It was a good show, but seemed to get stuck in a rut. Secondary story lines just end. By the end the show felt tired. The acting was great the writing was good, but it ran out of gas half way through the last year.

This show represents everything that's wrong with America morally, but I sure do like it.

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!
