Episodes that focus on members of The Five are really fun and enjoyable, but I end up fast-forwarding through half the episodes that don't.

One of my favourite shows ever made. I was devastated when it ended, but I also think SyFy screwed them around. Amanda Tapping is the Empress of SciFi, and I hope she makes more soon.

wau! as long as i can see after few episodes: weak acting, poor drama and cheap morality. sorry...

Sanctuary started with such great promise - although obviously aimed at teenage viewers. In some ways, it is a little like Grimm, showing the monsters among us. But by Season 3, it was all down hill. The underlying story had changed to a weak rehash of various other story lines, a couple of key actors / actresses had left, and the special effects budget had been cut. By series 4, it had reached the pits. Until, a little surprisingly, the last couple of episodes seemed a little better. So worthwhile watching a couple of episodes to check out if it is to your taste. But remember the storyline pivots...

Season 4 really lost everthing that made the show interesting. Shame, I'm a fan of Amanda from her SG1 days.

Cool show- I hoped for another season. Be warned, the show doesn't have an happy ending- why? There's no ending! T_____T Big Thanks to the Analysts of a certain TV Channel.

Apparently they cut Kate Freelander's role in Sanctuary. I've struggled to watch every episode since then. Combination of cheesy characters and too many bad CGI rooms. It can't be that expensive to build a set.

was fun for a while.. then lost intrest

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!
