So many quality shows coming out at the moment and there's about another 10 being released in the next few months.Tokyo vice looks like one I will be watching


This is definitely one of my favorite shows of the year thus far. Really cool vibe overall that the show has going on. Excellent writing, acting, and cinematography. Thumbs up thus far and I'm expecting the same to continue as more episodes of this season continues. Definitely recommended!


Best 2022 surprise so far hope the quality will be same for all season 9/10


So far.... WOW! I cant wait for nex tepisode!


It looks like a good show, interesting story, good cinematography above par acting and directing. I hated the use of subtitles., I found them to be distracting and of no benefit to to the show. The viewers know the show is shot in Japan and the primary language is Japanese, but who is the target audience?


Great show so far, jut well entertain.


best thing in last few years..


Although not my genre (Sci-Fi - Fan) though i did begin watching this show mainly because i love Japanese Culture, however, I've found myself liking this show for the story.


absolutely great show, the atmosphere is fantastic and very different from what's out there. give it a go I'm sure you will love it


my favorite of 2022 sofar.


Definitely one of the best shows in 2022 so far!


[HBO Max] It works best when the main character becomes a supporting character, especially in the final episodes. One of the problems is that they doesn't know how to fit Jake's character into the criminal plot, which is the most interesting and the one that gets the most tension. As fictional as, some say, the real Jake Adelstein's own experiences, the series works well as a crime thriller.


This was a underdog, not much publicity big billboards etc, but the cast , story and acting was amazing a true 9 Just not sure why it says Ended on track let under status I am sure a lot more of the story is left. Can’t wait to see when he strays work on his article

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!
