Unbelievable! This is so well made and acted.... a must see, and afterwards watch the HBO documentary....


I really had no interest in this story line. I am a huge fan or Patricia Arquette, but this girl that plays Gypsy Rose, (Joey King) Wow can she act. I was thoroughly impressed with how well written and well told this whole story was. I totally recommend this show!!


What a roller coaster! As someone who has been very investigative in this story I am very impressed how they put this together. At some times I was asking myself "Why am I watching this?" As if this actually was real footage from real events. The actors are amazing at what they are doing. Also I cam understand how Gypsy can disagree on this series. I had a wonderful time watching this.


Fab series. Wish there was more stuff like this out there! Well acted, comes highly recommended

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!
