Felt the show had poor acting. The fighting didn't feel that exciting.

nice pilot, looking foward to see more

Interesting start. Moves fairly slowly though and there's a fair amount of exposition.

Great, for someone who likes history and/or fantasy.

I think this series will not go with season 2. (via TV Blaze for WP)

Unfortunately the show has been cancelled, so no more seasons

The cam is shaky, the theme song is some god-awful 21st century rock ballad, nothing about the show feels the least bit Welsh, and in general there's just nothing there that grabs my interest.

Amazing show from the Writer of The Shield and Sons Of Anarchy, Kurt Sutter. Reminds me of Braveheart, Game of Thrones, The Tudoors and Robin Hood. Simply amazing show and VERY underrated. Up there with Mr Robot as the best new shows of 2015. The acting is great, writing is fantastic and the camera work is good to.

I am starting to become a Kurt Sutter fan. A promising show (with Kurt and Katey both playing a role ...... ) after Sons of Anarchy ended. Lots of well known stars from the latter show also. Definitely watching the rest of the season.

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!
