One of my favorite shows. It was engaging, and it made me care so much about the characters and their evolution as people, not just characters written in a script. Wonderfully cast.

Watching these again 15 years after the initial run. I loved the first season for the maths releated crime but on re-watch I'm really loving the character building. It mixes dramatic and hard hitting with light hearted and well done comic relief. Still excellent in 2020!

While probably not a main stream show since it's a crime drama rooted in math, as a math/physics engineering nerd, I love it! Watched it some while it was airing with my mother, and now enjoy watching it and catching the principals behind the math they are using. Plus, it's hard to go wrong with Ridley Scott.

Gripping at many episodes, funny and light at some moments, math has never been so cool and approachable.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ 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 πŸ™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 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!
