Not for everyone. That being said, it's a very good historical drama, with very good character development.

Vraiment dommage qu'elle ait été stoppée alors même que cette série prenait encore olus d'ampleur.

i thought there would be more about Jack the Ripper...

avatar

I was pretty sure that i have seen the detective before it turned out that he was in the movie Pride and prejudice don't know if i will keep watching this show or not

avatar

first time i didn't like it, too long, too english, too similar to Copper. But I kept watching this series and I'm glad I did. The last few episodes of the season reveal a depth greater.

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!
