Starting Season 15, Kari, Tory, and Grant are no longer with the show. Their salaries have apparently gone to the film production staff. There are now a lot of visual effects and cutesy sketches, a departure from the sort of "garage show" feel back when they started out in the first seasons. All in all, the new approach is a lot better than I would have expected. However, it suffers from cutting back and forth between one project done by Adam and Jamie and another project done by Adam and Jamie. I understand that they are catering to the limited attention spans of their audience, but it was less jarring to cut back and forth between two different crews: Adam/Jamie and Kari/Tory/Grant. I think the change is for the worse, but the show is still watchable. You can find Grant Imahara on Star Trek Continues.

Series was a blast, no pun intended, until they laid off Grant, Kari, and Tory.

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!
