Incredible. I went into this blind and was blown away

I began watching this show and before I had even noticed, I had watched four episodes in a row! I love it when shows do that to you; when they just grab you and won't let go and, hoo-boy, this one definitely does that!

I came into it by just wanting to watch an episode before bed, but I actually binged it till 7 AM. I think that says it all.

I am only 2 episodes in and like to wait until I've watched it all to give my opinion. However, this show is really good. Like really really good. I especially love the acting involving facial expressions and body language.

not something I would probably watch since the action happens very slowly but the show is done very good and it grows on you if you give it time.

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!
