Well I'm loving it. I was afraid it was another disappoing show from Netflix, like The Irregulars, oh boy was I wrong. From the acting to the scenarios you get pulled in to the story. I hope you all love this as much as I'm loving it.


Solid show and adaptation! I really enjoyed the changes they made to parts of the story and how much more I enjoy certain characters in the tv show version. (Looking at you, Mal) Not quite the next Witcher but definitely better than Fate. My only qualms were with Ben Barnes' acting (very stiff, like he didn't want to be there) and with [spoiler] Nina and Matthias feeling a bit rushed. Although I'm willing to look over it since they had very little time and two other bigger plotlines to juggle. I'm hoping in the second season there's more of a slow burn there. [/spoiler]


Disclaimer: I've only read the Six of Crows duology and loved it. I really liked this series. It melds the Shadow and Bone book series with the Six of Crows, both written by Leigh Bardugo and taking place in the Grishaverse universe. It manages to make its own identity through good story line, fast pathing, interesting characters and settings and beautiful sceneries. I thought the first half of the season flowed exceptionally well, but some of the later episodes were a bit disappointing for me. Pros: - Visually stunning. Costumes, scenery and special effects are delightful. - Cast is on point. Really loved Kit Young as Jesper and Jessie Mei Li as Alina. - The world is well thought and fleshed out. In between: - Pathing is very fast, not many moments were you can pause and think about what's happening. - Story is original, but nothing never seen before. - Matthias and Nina storyline feels rushed and unnecessary for this first season. Actually, most of the Six of Crows storylines have little to no impact on the overall scheme of things in season 1, and just acting as a stepping stone for season 2. Cons: - Some scenes are VERY dark and it's difficult to see what's happening. - Some plot points could have had more explaining, mainly the [spoiler] Morozova's beasts[/spoiler] storyline, which I thought were kind of a deus ex machina. All in all a very enjoyable watch, extremely bingeable and satisfying. I recommend to all fantasy fans. 8/10


Could only do 3 episodes it's pure garbage


The show is yet another mediocre adaptation distributed by Netflix with poor character developments and a messy plotline. Characters felt flat with their dull backstories; even characters who died have no real impact on us viewers. Although the costumes and atmosphere look pretty amazing to look at, you can easily be distracted by how some of the CGI effects are noticeably bad; Yes, I'm looking at you, Alina (For some reason, it reminds me of how Netflix handled Iron Fist's glow). However, the soundtrack was great to listen! All I can say is if you have read the Grishaverse novels, then you might be for a treat as you already have come to love the characters and have the knowledge of how a Grisha works. If you are just a casual viewer, then you'd be left out with no explanations whatsoever. It's like the show assumes you've read the books on what they can do.


It irritates me that they make a big deal about removing Alinas' scars but completely ignore the giant one on her forehead.


Intriguing world and premise, but the terrible pacing and uneven quality destroys a promising show. Characters are fairly one dimensional, especially their introductions are lacking. The plot moves at the speed of a bullet train launched into space, which especially hurts the world building and character development. It also causes the themes to be hardly explored, and side plots to feel trivial. CGI and cinematography are a mixed bag, ranging from nice to terrible (especially the color filter is often hideous), The acting is ok in general, but dialogue can be uneven. About halfway into the 1st season, the show stabilizes somewhat, but it never recovers from the problematic opening, making any investment in the characters and world shallow at best. It is a waste because the world seems highly interesting, and I have to assume it deserves much better than this uninspired work.


Way overated. Not well written or acted.


I just watched the first episode. I didn't understnd anything about this. I don't know where thay are, what they are doing, why they are doing whatver they're doing. i was just lost. I know this is based on a book ( Ihaven't read and I won't read it). I expected to understand the show without being part of the book fandom.


[spoiler] So every male character is weak, stupid or irresponsible and 90% of the black characters are gay? Oh yeah this is a great show.[/spoiler] Fuck off with this shit!!!

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.
