The story itself could be so good, but the characters are bland and uninteresting. I simply don't care if they live or die since they are neither lovable nor hateable...

I was looking forward to this, another 'reboot' if you will, of what we all know 'The Village of the Damned' previously. This time, they've given it the same title as the actual John Wyndham book it's all based on (with some significant differences, both to the book, and previous movie adaptations of 1960 & 1995) - he also penned other infamous works like 'Day of the Triffids' and 'Chocky'. To be fair I wasn't expecting anything special, but I was actually quite pleased on how this one turned out. OK, some plot holes you could drive a bus through, but have to hand it to the casting agents, those kids are spooky as hell! You wouldn't want to piss any of them off, that's for sure! Cold blooded, heartless killers, always in the name of keeping the Hive/Brood safe! Without giving anything away, I wonder if there's room for a second series. Wyndham abandoned his sequel (Midwich Main) after a few chapters, so nothing really there to base it on, so .. plenty of opportunity! Overall, an enjoyable adaptation and worth a watch if you are a fan of the genre - or seeing how it stands up to previous incarnations. I still rank the original 1960's version as being a masterpiece!

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
