I am a sucker for Behind-the-scenes and Making-of stuff. I always watch the extras on any film I watch. This docu seemed like a natural fit for me. I can't blame it for only having two movies in it I like (never saw _Dirty Dancing_ and always disliked _Home Alone_). What I do blame it for is the comedic narration. That really didn't fit well. Informational content it as good as it gets. Supplement for season 2: Everything I wrote about the first season holds true for the second also. Shame, because the stories itself are actually really interesting.

This could have been a good series, but the narration is beyond annoying and very distracting. Does anybody really like Β«funnyΒ» narration like this? I sure as hell don't. It's exhausting.

Like the others haver said, the presentation is shallow, dumbed down and clickbaity but the movies themselves (and their stories) still hold up and offer some good watching.

An interesting watch, I love bts stuff but the narration and editing are anxiety inducing.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ 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 πŸ™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 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!
