Series two will not be as good. & i will blame Emma Willis & the fact that channel 4 thinks this show needs an after show. After shows imo are stupid & pointless. --EDIT-- Sept 23rd 2019 Yup, just as i thought. We have a "live launch" show, we have "live vote" nights, we have Cast member revels. NONE of that stuff is needed. This show was perfect the way it was!!! Emma, im sure had some say in this. Shes so bummed out about BBUK getting axed shes going to ruin this show.

**MY THOUGHTS ON THE CIRCLE (UK):** _**-WARNING: Spoilers Below-**_ Firstly, Season One was **HILARIOUS!** I was absolutely hooked from start to finish. Alex was brilliant and I'll always remember when it was revealed that he wasn't Kate. Unfortunately for me like most Reality shows like this one I end up getting bored fairly quickly which isn't the fault of the show it's just that I don't like too much change in shows... And that's exactly what Season 2 did... Changed far too much. As soon as I saw that Davina was now the new hostess I knew they were going to run this show into the ground. I tried an episode of Season 2 and I was that bored and disappointed in everything it literally took me **TWO** days to even get halfway through because I kept changing tv shows! The Circle (UK) Will forever be one of those shows that I remember quite fondly and if it ever comes on TV and I have nothing to watch I'll happily waste an hour on it, I just won't actively seek out another episode again. I'd definitely recommend this show if you're looking for some mindless fun though! **Overall rating: 6/10.**

I changed my rating for the show. Back when the first series aired I had rated it a 9. That was because it was a simple show. There were no twists no turns, no this & that. During series 2 it was a giant clusterf**k trying to be Big Brother. & trying to please all the sad BBUK fans who missed that show after C5 axed it. So ya. I now rate it a 3. Brasils version on the other hand still gets a high rating from me.

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!
