I want expecting much when it came up as a suggestion in my prime lists. if you're a homophob, not for you. if you're not into girl power, strong women, not for you. if you're racist, not going to be for you. if you like fantasy, crossed with "crime" solving, military-ish with superwomen? you're in luck. it's surprisingly engaging. charmed with a while lot more kick-assery going on.

Despite the season preview at the end of the pilot previewing some intriguing "witchy" scenes ahead I think I'm going to pass. Wasn't certain beforehand how YA oriented this will be but from what I've seen that is certainly the target audience (if I had known it would air on Freeform I wouldn't have bothered - just thought that this being at SXSW would mean something different..). Lots of stuff gets skipped over or is handled superficially which is weird for a show declaring sisterhood/their squad to be something crucial.

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!
