I like that the main role is played by a strong woman of colour, unlike the original typical white male. And not your typical Hollywood svelte model either. Production values feel a little lacking, hopefully that will improve beyond the pilot!

Awesome. Queen Latifah kicks ass in this. I was a bit afraid since following up Denzel's Mccall wouldn't be easy, but I think she got it with her own spin. Loving it and hope it's here to stay.

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!
