Good concept although it's very formulaic. Very predictable and quite clearly staged in places (as most US "reality" shows are). Still though, it's entertaining as I do think that the celebs feel anxious carrying out the "survival" tasks. Really wish they wouldn't keep banging on about faith though. Utterly stupid to think that some all powerful God is looking after these guys acting/sporting career while he lets babies starve to death in other countries. Keep your boring faith to yourself. If they run a second series I hope they crank up the realism a touch and lose the formula.

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!
