The listing is missing the 2017 Christmas Special - A Christmas Crow. Please could somebody add it ASAP.


It's like a smug uni student who passed a Shakespeare degree has thrown in every thing they've learnt & tried to recreate Blackadder, with constant rambling about 'what I've said will be mentioned in years to come' crap. the audience seems to be made up of fellow Shakespeare degree passers. It's devoid of humour, hard to believe how plain it is, considering the amount of great talent In &behind it. None of it, is even as good as the Blackadder season. 1


as a non.english who doesn't know and care about shakespeare, i do like this show and find it pretty funny.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
