Never should have cancelled this. Amazing production value, solid cast, even won an award. Sigh.


I really did loved this show. However, they ended the season so f*cked up. I hate when these studios leave fans hanging, without any sort of satisfaction!!! :angry:


This show was fantastic, would have loved to have seen where it would have went in future seasons but at least we got a decent conclusion to all the main storylines.


Felt really different, in a good way. A shame it's over.


Really loved this show, the only thing bad about it is its unfortunate cancellation.


The sort of thing BBC3 was great at, before it's budget was slashed and it was all cheap reality docs and shit comedy, now of course it only exists online. Like that will last . . .


I <3 The Fades. Sadface for not renewing it.

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!
