I just binge-watched the whole season this evening and I can't imagine a better way to have spent my time. This show is FANTASTIC. It really is a rollercoaster of emotions in the best way possible. It's 100% a feel-good show and covers really, really important issues! It definitely differs from a lot of American sitcoms, it's raw, it's deep, its inclusive and it's very smart. It's a whole ton of fun. One Day at a Time is my biggest obsession right now & the best way to kick-start 2017.


A pleasantly surprising show! Wasn't sure what to make of this when it was recommended to me by Netflix but I am loving it so far. Tackles some important issues from both the past and present, I'm not going to lie there are a few touching moments too that nearly made me cry! The show is a good laugh and has something for everybody. I would recommend it to anyone, brill casting all around. Rita Moreno (plays Lydia) is a goddamn national treasure. Hope Netflix renews this! Would love to see a follow up season.


This show was a nice surprise, since I'm always distrustful of multi camera sitcoms. Even though the comedy (and performances) follows the rhythm one could expect, some jokes are very funny and there are very touching moments. Sometimes the show can get a bit too didactic with its morals, but overall it was refreshing to see an old formula bring sensitivity to discussions about sexism, immigration laws, PTSD and sexuality. As for the actors, Justina Machado shows she can handle a show like this and the kids show some promise but the real star is Rita Moreno. She is a great performer and responsible for all my biggest laughs - and even a few tears.

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!
