This is a must-see foreveryone... just see where your food it coming from and how they are destyoing the very source of their income and our food for greed and nothing else.

The show is important and eye-opening to the impact of the decisions we, as consumers, make everyday. However, Rotten tends to focus too much on one specific issue while neglecting others, and at times the episodes seem badly streamlined. Many of the episodes could be broken down in 15 minutes or less and yet they'd contain the same amount of information.

second season is significantly better than the first season. more focus on the topic than the anchor in second season

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!
