I like superheroes as much as the next guy and I've read my share of comics in my youth. I never got into Superman, though. Don't like him much. That whole invincible, Man of Steel stuff and the underlying patriotism just never clicked. And don't get me started about the romance. Having said that this show was for the most part really good. Some really good writing and coherent stories. Seemed alltogether more suited for adults than children. Although you could do things different back then.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
