Worth checking out if you liked shows like Pushing Daisies or Dead Like Me. Kristen Bell is great in this too. So good at playing a bitch lol. Yet she's a likeable one.

avatar

I am all in. This is the character Bell is meant to play. I'll be giving it a full season to see how well it develops around her performance. Not perfect but at least its fresh.

avatar

The show had its ups and downs through its season, but the final two episodes were game changers and made up for every little bad thing. The show is amazing and can't wait for next season.

avatar

I wanted to love this because of Kristen but I just can't. It just feels all over the place and nowhere at all at the same time.

avatar

The best comedy that debuted this fall. Definitely not for average viewers though. It will be a critical darling, but unfortunately not a hit.

avatar

Wasted comedic actor potential. Extremely surprised the Cheers guy and the female lead would stoop to the level of Good Place -- seems like the next stop for them will be as contestants on "Dancing with the Stars"... ;-) Generic, predictable, unfunny and full of cliches -- seems very much like a Hulu-only series, which is likely where the remaining episodes will stream once low ratings result in early network TV cancellation.

_Greater than the sum of its parts._ I don't think I've ever rated a show higher than I rated each individual season, but this show take all its disparate, less-than-perfect pieces and makes one of the best artistic expressions of human experience I've ever seen. Touching on philosophy from all angles,_[I'm going to spoiler tag this section, because it talks about the philosophical ideas of the ending, but won't contain overt plot spoilers.]_ [spoiler]and settling on lessons everyone should learn about compassion towards your fellow man (even the Brents of the world, even if you know they cant be allowed to treat people the way they do, they are still people and still capable of good), on the knowledge that oblivion and mortality give meaning to life, and shows both in story and in practice, that it's better to know when it's time for something to end.[/spoiler] Honestly, I truly hope that this series has an effect on people. It touches on so many topics with grace, and while it does so with a bit too much of that tongue-in-cheek political correctness, its biggest lessons are right on the money. The final season constantly busts out tearjerkers, and I am so glad the creators realized that good things must end. So many shows, even my favourite ones, have had mediocre endings and didn't know where to go with themselves, but culminating everything in one big hour long special epilogue was a perfect ending. I hope this series is the Doug Forcett of our universe.

That ending completely slayed me ...

avatar

was so pleasantly surprised with this show! thought it was pretty good from the start but towards the end of the season it really advanced. so awesome!!!

avatar

Once again, Show that is totally POSITIVE :) it reminds me of Eureka but without SF :) I like it because after watching it I feel good and positive :) It's not masterpiece but I rate shows and movies based on my connection to them.

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!
