A brilliant series of comedy. Each episode can also be taken as a life lesson

The Middle was such a phenomenal show. I really enjoyed seeing everybody grow up on the show. It was something I could relate to due to living in Indiana.

It will always be summer of Sue in my mind.

Quitting while you are ahead is an art. I will miss The Middle, but I love how I can remember its final season as a great one, instead of a "meh", or worst, as the season that ruined everything (does it not happen too often?). The show was solid entertainment from beginning to end.

Can you please add some photos to the episodes that don’t? :)

great show, but that Brick kid is so annoying. he gets more rude an disrespectful every season and that has nothing to do with being a teenager. I wish someone would put him in his place once in a while. he makes the show less fun to watch.

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!
