This is one of the most funniest TV shows I've seen, with many iconic moments that make you laugh out loud. Peter Capaldi and the rest of the cast is brilliant, and no matter how many times I rewatch scenes or episodes, it will always make me laugh!


House of Cards meets This is Spinal Tap. It couldn't get any fucking better


"Oh, well, I am just de shadow chancellor." You never want the dialogues to finish. The greatest political satire.

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!
