A very slow moving series but so very well played by all. Even the children presented as real. A very intriguing plot with some very good lessons to be learned.


Shane Meadows is to me slowly becoming a director/writer to keep an eye out for. Sublimely acted, beautifully crafted and harrowingly dark, this is Shane's best since the This Is England movie.


Really enjoyed this show, great acting and very realistic, maybe too much of a slow burner for some.


Terribly tedious and depressing. Couldn't take it after 31 minutes and shut it off. 0/10

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!
