the first seasons are quite bad in terms of quality of storytelling and graphics, the latest ones mostly too obvious. love the simpsons of a few years ago. think about drug-inducing frogs, psycho-chili and most of all: the canyonero :D hhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4QgWRycd7I

All you Simpsons fans, if you haven't already, get the Simpsons Tapped Out game for your phone. They're doing a special Clash of Clans promotion right now and its the dopeness

difficult to rate; obviously the first several seasons are superb, but it has infamously just gotten worse ever since

Trending Shows (Including The Simpsons)

I can't say I have watched all those series (at least not yet...).

But I have compiled the best episodes for each of them.

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!
