Back in the 80s this show was hilarious. Like many others I became aware of it through the "Land of Confusion" video by Genesis. The 2020 version is soso at best. Some jokes are good and hit the point. But there are also complete episodes that didn't even produce a smile from me. If you are of the older generation and remember the world history from the past you should probably better watch the old episodes. That is, if you can find them anywhere.

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!
