It’s an absolute tragedy what happened in 2018 and the fact that nobody has been brought to justice is criminal.


A well made show regarding the events of 2018. I do have a few issues with the show. The acting isn't the greatest, it sometimes feels overacted, and in some areas it feels like it's attempting to imitate 'Chernobyl'. It clearly is a serious subject that it's portraying, but even so it can feel overly dramatised for television here-and-there. With that said, there's no doubting it is entertaining to watch. Whilst I don't love the performances per se, I still rate what Rafe Spall (Nick) and Anne-Marie Duff (Tracy) bring to it. Away from the cast, the editing and use of archive footage is nicely done. Lastly, the fact it only lasts three episodes is a positive.

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!
