just finished season one and WOW, just wow. sometimes slow pace, specially at the beginning, but it gets better every episode. the main cast is amazing and the acting is on point. also ended with a great cliffhanger. 10/10 UPDATE: season 2 is even better than season 1. much more fascinating and way way gayer. i loved it! another 10/10 UPDATE 2.0: season 3 is also amazing ?? makes me so sad that its over, but im so glad to have known it

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!
