This was an absolute great show. To bad they cancelled it. Some shows now have less potential. Really disappointed, season 3 would be awesome!!


Canceling this show was an absolute travesty of any kind of sense or logic.


I liked the other Stargate shows and movies and I felt this show had a lot of potential but it just never lived up to its name and was an embarrassment. What let this down was it was too slow and had way too much drama than the other Stargate shows. I got the feeling the writers just ran out of ideas and tried to make it last by just adding anything to it.

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!
