Amazing show. I was wondering what the fuss is all about until I started watching it, then I just couldn't stop.

Brilliant show! Series 3 was kind of a letdown but overall I highly recommend it.

this and the torchwood mini series, up there as the best shows ever and shame they are so short in season length :( i miss you benedict!

One of the best shows out there. I have never seen such a masterpiece in all my years of watching TV shows.

avatar

Absolutely one of the best shows I've ever seen. It's always fun to watch it can't wait for the 4th season and I'm 100% sure that it's gonna be awesome.

avatar

I never even liked Sherlock Holmes or crime-solving shows like these, but this Sherlock truly won me over. Brilliant show! Cumberbatch > Downey Jr.

avatar

First season amazing, drops steadily from there

avatar

Amazing show, every single minute of every episode worth it.

avatar

Benedict Cumberbatch is fcking amazing.

This is one of the best series I've ever watched! Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman) make a great team on the screen. The episodes are more like short movies (1,5 h) and even though there are only 3 episodes per season and about one seaon in 1,5 years, Sherlock is definitely worth the wait and worth watching!

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!
