Very good first season! Like it! I like european cinema. It's much better than the american shows. Greetings from Bulgaria!


I like Skandinavian cinema, especially detective tv serials. Very good first season! I hope the second season will keep watch


Top notch drama, I hope that S02 is shown where I can see it.


Top notch drama with subtitles. I loved it and want to see S02.


I wasn't totally convinced but by the end my opnion changed, although I still think the show could've done away with the whole clichéd investigation trope of [spoiler]catching the wrong guy at first[/spoiler] as it didn't add anything to the plot and the show was much better after that part, It felt like it was added for the sole purpose of increasing the episode count.

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!
