Brilliant! A perfect spin on what life is like during COVID-19 in the world of an actor. Funny, heart warming, everything I needed right now.

I was a little worried it would be a bit claustrophobic given the premise and format, but this is delightful and clever.

Wow, how adorable these two gentlemen are. If you enjoy **Good Omens**, you should definitely watch this show! Also, there are some big stars as guests in the show. Goddammit, I really love British TV shows.

Is it possible to make a show that is more meta than this ? I mean the level of entanglement is really deep and if you want to keep trak of where they are or pretend to be, is quite hard. All the more that it's very funny. I think the main issue is that it's not quite accessible, it's technical art and not entertainment so it will be hard to become a popular show. But as a spectator I'm amazed by the quality of the work that has been done on every level.

British show shot during the lockdown. A little gem of humour and emotion. :heart:

This is just delightful! A great way to put that creative energy, otherwise going to waist, to good use. And season 2 was even funnier.

One of the best audiovisual proposals that have emerged from the poor creativity that has caused the confinement. Although the second season loses some of the freshness, of the direct and personal contact with the two protagonists that the first had, this is replaced by the stellar appearance of more special guests. There is an irregular development, but some episodes of great comic brilliance.

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!
