Back in Lanford for the second season without the banshee. Didn’t actually think they would renew this one but am glad they did. An excellent comedy and cast.

For a spin off of a derailed reboot, this show might have landed on its feet. It attempts to be edgy and progressive in every way possible in constant small doses. It inserts elements of the current political climate in an ironic way. Slightly more entertaining than boring.

Absolute garbage. So much political liberal stuff shoved down your throat each episode. And I thought Fox shows were awful for stuffing their agenda down our throats. You just can't watch shows any more without someone ramming your face with their leanings. The Conners does this aggressively. I'm done with this show. Can't wait to hear when this trash gets cancelled.

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!
