As an absolute football fanatic I'm trying to get my hands on anything even slightly football related during this quarantine. So this came out at just the right time. It's a very interesting (even I didn't know much about this story) and very well made period drama.


An interesting story on the origins of professional football in England with some nice backstories and character development... just a shame it's a bit loose on the historical footballing accuracy! [spoiler] Fergus Suter and Blackburn Rovers were not actually the first Northern team to win the FA Cup! Blackburn Olympic won it the year before them without Suter. [/spoiler] This aside, it's an enjoyable watch and I wouldn't mind a second series!


The series is quite simple, yet it transports well into the "time" of the events. For any football (soccer) fan it's a mini-must watch --- 2.1 points -> Acting and Characters (0-3) 1.4 points -> Plot development (0-2) 1.4 points -> Cinematography (0-2) 0.8 points -> originality (0-1) 0.8 points -> Based on Genre / Theme (0-1) 0.7 -> Overall Quality (0-1) Aka. 7.2 points (*this rating is still on the works) --- This is the first time I evaluate a series with these criteria, it follows a similarity with the formatting I do with movies evaluation.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
