whaaaaay did it have to end with that messed up cliffhanger!?

Season 1 was good but season 2 was dire with some of the worst writing in any recently sci-fi...no matter how good actors might be with such awful scripts they didn't stand a chance

The first season was great, it fell apart in the second season though, mostly because they ramped up the episode count, and stretched maybe 12 episodes of story over 22 episodes. It started out well, but the middle of the season had some boring episodes that could have been part of a previous episode, instead of its own episode, but then they seemed to have rushed the final couple episodes when they could have built it out, instead of having the boring mid season episodes. I wish instead of cancelling the show, they would have given it a shorter season like season 1's 9 episodes.

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!
