I like this show. I think it should make the "woke" mob think that in some ways they are no better than those they despise by being intolerant of about everything that makes them slightly uncomfortable.


Let's say it could be the faculty side of Dear White People, without the image filters and weaker comedy. However, Sandra Oh could star in your fifth grade play and we'd demand a Tony for her because she's way more than we deserve. It's not bad at all, but I might have gone in with too many expectations. Race, age, the stagnation of dying institutions and single motherhood, all stirred and poured correctly, but left with a feeling of "you could've done more with so many ingredients".


This show tries to cater to everyone's wants. On one hand it shows the cancel culture for the mob that it is. On the other hand it criticises the non-science departments for not being inclusive enough. Overall this is an immensly mediocre show barely worth watching.


This was fine, but only fine. Fundamentally I was left wondering “who is this for?”


This was such a breather from all the overly Patriotic american shit that Netflix has been releasing lately, it's nice, simple and the story is attractive and interesting. Not to mention the acting is perfect! I would love to see more of this kind of shows


I was leary at first but it won me over pretty quickly. Dark humor gets me every time!


This was really well filmed and well acted. Sandra Oh definitely understood the assignment here. At some points I was bored and the comedy relied mainly on the uexpected which stopped making it funny in the long run. This was good.


Lovely writing, direction and acting, a smart, funny and moving story, relevant themes and the right length. Twenty years ago it would have been a movie, now we get a TV show. It's fine, I guess.


The series is fine, it just wasn’t what I thought it would be . Also, in what world does any university have a struggling English department?


[Netflix] This series makes the same mistakes as the protagonist (Sandra Oh playing Sandra Oh) when she accepts the position of director of the English Department, betraying her own ideas to satisfy everyone. The show wants to talk about important issues regarding cancel culture, supremacist traits in the Universities, approaching to History... but finally, it does not get involved or take sides in anything.

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!
