If you have ever seen or been involved with low-ish budget theater, community or otherwise, you know how things can go wrong. Everything does in this show, with near-prefect comedic timing.


The most consistently laugh out loud comedy series I've ever seen. Every episode has had me bust out in full laughter. It's an utter delight of watching actors miss cues or forget lines or have props trigger incorrectly or often collapse. Something that successfully managed to never overstay it's welcome.


Stumbled on this while waiting for Would I Lie To You. What the hell is it? A group of adults making stupid noises and shouting at each other with a background of canned laughter. Why oh why have the BBC wasted money on this series! Not sure what person this show would appeal to. 3 of us sat here watching it and not one of us has found any part of it funny. It's pretty terrible when you find the closing credits the most entertaining part of a show.

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!
