2 two-hour episodes with tons of information about how truly evil Big Pharma are, and how complicate they - and the U.S. gvmt - are in making regular people drug addicts. The 'fines' they pay are no more than a slap on the wrist and a pass to continue doing it over and over again (just like the banks BTW). In America, Canada and the UK it's called "lobbying" - the rest of the world calls it "bribery and corruption." Take the time to watch it... 9/10

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ 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 πŸ™ˆ

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!
