Definitely one of the best True Crime documentaries I've seen in a while, because of its focus on the many victims of the very flawed U.S. criminal justice system - crime victims and survivors, the wrongfully incarcerated or rather the exonerated, after they've spent _decades_ behind bars and their families. It would have been great to get a more in depth look into solutions or changes that need to happen and how they can be brought about, besides the obvious: **Vote the right people into office!**

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ 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 πŸ™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 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!
