An hilarious, brilliant and well-written show with great acting!


Brilliant show. After MTV Faking It was not renewed, I had to follow my actress. Happy I was loyal. Funny and enlightening.


İts the thing everyone should watch it, great show, cant wait for the next episode.


Love the girls, love the topics and most of all LOVE the music. Whoever is in charge of picking the songs for the episodes need a friggin raise because they are KILLING IT!


Well written and heartwarming. The best aspect of the show is the friendship between the girls. It's portrayed in a realistic way, you feel you are really in front of three friends. Secondly, there's a female mentor for these girls in their boss, which is pretty unusual in shows targeted to women. The show is really feminist and makes a lot of points smoothly and boldly. Overall, it's a fun show but also a good representation of women.


I love this show so much, freeform really hit a home run with this one. However, while watching season 2 I have some questions: 1) When did Jane get so annoying? 2) Where the hell is Alex!? 3) Not a question but more Sutton please [spoiler](she belongs with Richard)[/spoiler]


If you came with the preconceived idea that the audience of this tv show is limited to females (women) with ages ranging from their early twenty to thirty something, you are up for a surprise. **Just watch the first and second episode**, then let me know if you still think you were right.


YASSSS I live for KADENA!!! Kenat wait for next season omg


i wanna watch it but seems to be on the over the top extreme "feminism" side. gonna skip it because its just pure toxic p.s. note how i put the "" around feminism. the problem is not the feminism. its the new toxic display of it EDIT: 2 years later, there is no such thing as good feminism. god its all shit now


How can someone have rated this show 5/10 when it doesn't air for another 2 months?

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!
