Huge fan of Downton Abbey... This show isn't that so far... YES the costumes, the scenery, the sets! However the casting is falling flat. No one is likeable; the people your supposed to root for are cold as of first episode. Will watch more... but I'm not going to be putting this at #1 to watch for the week...

Well the first episode down and to be honest with you, there’s not on likeable character at the moment, none of the comfort or joy of downton abbey. I will try another one or two episodes, but I’ve already got that nagging feeling this show isn’t for me and probably won’t be around for long….

Teo insufferable Trump haters in one show may be more than I can take. Looks like Fellowes got woke.

The first two episodes are the introduction to the series and the time period . The Gilded Age is my favorite period in American history . With rapid industrialization of the country vast fortunes were made, and the making of the American millionaires. I feel that the reason the first two episodes fall flat is because they’re trying to explain historical content as I feel most Americans and perhaps others won’t understand the context of what they’re watching :man_shrugging: . Old knickerbocker New York society was established, and didn’t take too kindly to the new money arrivals . The women truly were the key holders of this society, and they ruled with an iron fist . The ruling class in New York had closed gates, and didn’t want to grant access to the rest of the country . In other words just because you were very wealthy and you were from California per say that didn’t grant you an entry into the wealth, connections, and the politics you needed to further your businesses and financial endeavors. If you want to get a better feel for society at the time read or watch House of Mirth and The Age of Innocence . Episode three seems to finally be getting into the meat and potatoes of the storyline .

Tepid American version of Downton Abbey. Poor writing. Computer graphics distracting. Lots of manufactured social drama. Yawn!

About Me

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!
