Easy, I always saw Roger Ailes never noticed Russell Crow. Wouldn’t be almost laughable to even think that most of what have happened during the last two decades in the US is mostly the making of an (ex) Aussi and not the infamous “Russians”.

Important but not outstanding. Russell Crowe is nominated in a Best Actor category for the 2020 Golden Globes but I only saw Russell Crowe in a fat suit (unlike John Lithgow who disappeared into Churchill in THE CROWN). I have to admit I only watched 4 of the 7 episodes (1995, 2012, 2015 and 2016), at first by accident (the episode were listed out of sequence) but then, deliberately (I couldn't handle watching any more of the devolution of the man that seems to eerily parallel the megalomaniac spiral of Donald Trump). I just wanted to get to the end. This tale is one too often repeated in this levelling time of the Me, Too era (powerful, unattractive men who use their power to get gratification they could never attract on their own). Because these stories change the power dynamic, these stories need to be told, and for that I give this limited series an 8 (important) out of 10. [Biographical Drama]

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!
