Only 1 episode into it and I love it. Very powerful for a first episode.

This has cancelled written all over it.

I grew up watching The Wonder Years original starring Fred Savage back in the day, which was one of my favorite shows as a kid. The promotional commercials for this new version gives similar vibes and may have potential to be great, so I will be checking it out to give it a chance.

As a hardcore TWY fan, I'm on board with whatever they decide to do. I think about all the stories that have been reimagined since always, so I really can't understand the backlash.

Soz, not soz. This isnt The Wonder Years. I dont really care if Kevin Arnold has anything to do with this knock off version. ABC is just too cheap to come up with anything original anymore. & it continues to show with bringing back everything that was popular back in the day. I wont be watching this & I predict this will be a flop

No jokes. No soul. Just a waste of time.

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!
