This show almost fills the Fleabag-shaped hole in my heart.


_This Way Up_ is fantastic. I think I'm in love with Aisling Bea. A fast-moving series, it's funny, warm, sad one moment and hilarious the next. There's a natural chemistry between Bea and Horgan, and the supporting cast is stellar. Most surprising bit? Visually it's quite ambitious, at least relative to what I'm used to seeing with shows of this genre or tone. It really is beautiful to look at. Director Alex Winckler did a wonderful job.


Yeah, we're gonna need a second season ASAP!

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!
