season 1 & 2 the family plotline is kinda annoying. other then that really solid show. i love holder and lindens chemistry, great characters. the episodes focused more around the family are weaker than the rest but got better in season 2. the way it wrapped up whew season 3 finished the season in a night! loved bullet, story and writing were great (ruthless in getting you invested in the story and characters, building things up and making unconventional/expected turns)

Kind of slow, but awesome. :)

Loved s1-s2. S3 was less great, but still watchable.

I love the show, I want more!

Vou sentir tanta falta dessa série, muito boa, uma das poucas séries em que eu amei o final, maravilhoso!! :(((

didn't really like season 4, everything felt too cold and distant. the story wasn't as interesting as in the previous seasons. the way it wrapped up though, great ending. good thing i still have the original to watch!

avatar

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!
