One of the (if not the) best ongoing show(s) on TV right now with amazing characters and an outstanding narrative style. Its more salient trademarks: a lot of originality and a huge amount of (pop) cultural references. It is a magnificent spoof/parody/homage of several genres (mostly old Hannah-Barbera cartoons and various superheroes) blended in an amazing fashion into one super original show. A must-watch for all fans of animated series for adults.

Useful video explanation of what show is about (functionally a "trailer): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lDkntn2W5k Warning: It's a recap of Seasons 1-4 so contains spoilers. However, you can watch the first 1:30 or 2:00 of it to get the backstory, main character bios, and gist of the show, as I did, without seemingly spoiling too much.

Anyone know if/when they're doing another season? Please say yes!!!! I was so stoked they did season 5. I really hope they do another. This show deserves tons of seasons, it's only one of the greatest things ever created in the history of time.

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!
