Food Network decided to go over the top SJW and purely agenda driven starting in 2020 and season 16 in 2022 is just enough already. 75% of the competitors tick all the boxes: all gay soldier truck, all trans truck, multiple disadvantaged minority trucks and a show I used to think was an OK competition is now just the same noise as scripted SJW TV shows.

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!
