I just rewatched the original and immediately watched whole GQ season. I love the fact that it made me really like Bette for the first time, never even liked her. I didn't like Alice but in her case it didn't change... yet. She had couple moments when I was at least interested. I see the potential in new characters but noone stand out for me to be liked. I wasn't really interestend in their stories tho I liked the relations with the old cast. I really want more of that. The bar could be a nice place for them to be all in one place. I sooooooooooo wanted Carmen. There are no words how bad I wanted her BUT... I really like Quiara and Shane's moments. Im at the crossroads bc I would love to see their relationship from beginning, I know I would love them so hard but I didn't see it so it's hard to ship them as I don't know Quiara or their relationship. So I still want Carmen and Shane tho Shane really loves Quiara and I don't want to see Carmen for one scene or for one hook up. I need them as endgame. All things considering... It was a nice season.


I miss my girls (and boy)!


I really love this show and have always had, makes me so nostalgic. It’s the most accurate representation of ~the queer world~ I’ve seen on TV. Loved the new cast and how they connected to old characters. A lot of drama, great friendships, important topics being discussed. I really hope to see more seasons of it. It’s a lgbtq+ must watch!

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!
