At first, I thought that it was just a bland version of UK's"The Circle" with lots of "filler" moments, but it took 3 episodes to completely reel me in.


My expectations for this show were VERY low. However by the end of the first episode I was hooked. I found it to be very entertaining. If you are looking for something fun to watch while staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic give this one a try.


This was better then I thought it would be, found it interesting to see how fake people were in the comments but to hear their real opinions spoken aloud. Holy crap though this show had so many catfishes it was scary.


I don’t know why I watched this show til the end :sweat_smile:


I don’t know how I got sucked into this show... but now I have to see it to the end lol


I am so convinced that this show was scripted. No one got pissed by the catfishes, every catfish was there to convene a message and the one romance were people who were really single and somehow hot for each other? The end felt kind of appologetic with a hint of preachy. And somehow everyone forgot about the comment Ed made when the fake skinny revealed herself? He literally immediately said that his comment would be fake. Regarding the looks: Sammy looks way better with the level of makeup shown during the season. A ton of makeup doesn't make a good look. But then I'm biased as I don't like makeup in general, no matter the sex.


Love it! It honestly reminds me of a dystopian reality show Ala Dr. Who or Black Mirror. Super fun!


Definitely only something to watch if you have headphones in and are doing something else like yard work. Nothing super special here and would not recommend to a friend. Such a shame because Michelle Buteau has had such good stand up content in the past and would recommend checking out her youtube videos or podcast. Genuinely not enough intrigue to keep me hooked or get me invested in the premise of this new style of game show. I am reviewing this when there are only four episodes posted, but will definitely be calling it quits on this show now.


This show can be fun at times and other times I just don’t really care what’s going on. There isn’t a lot of strategy that happens and at times I feel like some of the players are being stupid with their rankings. Decent show, but there are better reality TV shows out there.


Great show! I liked season 1 a little more. Bring on season 3!!!

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!
