Sumatran orangutan sisters Emma and Subis are, unusually, due to give birth at the same time, after male Puluh got them both pregnant. When Emma appears one morning with her new baby, it seems that Subis is going into labour. But after 24 hours of no progress, she is rushed to the vet for a possible caesarean section. What happens next is highly unexpected and shocks the team. Two-horned chameleon Ruby arrived at Chester after being transported illegally by pet traders and seized at customs. The zoo wants to breed her to help preserve the species, and Charles and Eddie are the two candidates. But chameleons are notoriously picky about mates, and Charles and Eddie will have to display themselves in front of each other to get Ruby in the mood.

About Me

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!
