So bummed TUF has come to an end.. I’m sure with UFC moving to ESPN they will try to trick up something new I imagine! Because TUF has just done SO much for the UFC. ie.. Stephan Bonner v Forest Griffin in epic TUF 1 finale ! That got SO MANY EYES on the UFC that hadn’t followed previously. Classic rock em sock em robot war!!

About Me

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!
