Encapsulates inter war Balkan politics very well and a couple of good detective characters to boot. Reminiscent of Eric Ambler novels for those old enough to have read them. Slightly iffy subs but good production overall and of course a cracking story. Recommended if you can handle some complex politics.

To a foreigner this was very hard to follow. The subtitles available are OK but the speed at which the many characters talk means you spend a lot of time reading rather than watching. That means the huge character cast gets confusing. I had to drop it after episode 3. But it's very well made and my wife, who's Serbian, loves it.

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!
