The show sits at a 7.5 for me so I had to round it up to an 8. It could've been a solid 8 had the animations not been so bad outside of a handful of episodes (starting episodes and half of an episode towards the end). They must've have passed it off to the animation C-team. Will, the story, the characters kept me wanting to see more and episode 5 was a tear-jerker (again, for me).

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!
