This has got to be the most absorbing of all true crime shows. Every episode has you hooked like a movie - you just have to remind yourself to remember it's real and that sadly this is human tragedy unfolding before your eyes. Real Crime. Real Consequences. Real good TV!

It amazes me how one can have no remorse for a humans soul. Great show and it should be a class in all schools to deter crime.

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!
