Quirky... original... humor... engaging -- a fun watch and just 10 quick 30 minute episodes.

A show where nothing really happens and everyone is so annoying and self-obsessed but, somehow, you can't help but feel compelled to watch the next episode because you want to know what's (not) going to happen next.

I had the time of my LIFE what a ride

I could do without the Elliot character. And I am not saying that to be homophobic, I am a gay man myself. He is just a horribly unlikable character. I find myself wanting to skip through scenes with him in it. Would it have killed the writers to put in a gay character that is a decent human being?

This show has its ups & downs; in the story, writhing, acting, characters, and so on. It’s like watching a really bad train wreck that’s about to happen in super slow motion. You know you should walk away but you just can’t. It’s like that with this show; you know you shouldn’t watch it but can’t stop watching. Seriously, you’ll hate watching it but will have fun watching it. When season 3 hit, watched it in 2 days. It’s a great time pass...

Dark humor, it's original.

Oh...my god...you guys. This show...it's like, you know...like, literally...nothing happened. [spoiler]yeah biznitches, that's a deep cut right there![/spoiler]

avatar

The ending is FANSTASTIC. If nothing else, watch the last episode.

avatar

I was expecting a great mystery show. Do I regret watching this? Yes, every character was horrible, self-obsessed, and I can't find anything to like about them. The plot is ok I guess, and I laugh at some scenes.

avatar

Only a few episodes in, but it's got something that makes it stand out. I heard someone say that this was very Pynchon-like which made me have to check this out, and it did and it is very Pynchon-like, so I'll say it here in case that helps anyone else make the leap :) some real The Crying of Lot 49 vibes... almost too strong maybe?

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!
