That one episode is enough for me to drop it, normally I give even the worst shows 2-3 episodes. Too many other, good, entertaining stuff to watch.

I was very enthused about this once I heard it was Lindlehoff at the helm. The Leftovers is one of my all time favorites, and this series promises to be a deep dive thematically with him at the helm. The series opener is as smart and interesting as I expected, but I was happy to see that it delivers on the action elements, as well. Very solid beginning - I'm psyched to see where it goes.

This is one of my most anticipated series for this year.

I was _not_ prepared for this show to likely become the thing I'm most psyched about in this surrounding two years; and yet here I am, witnessing all signs pointing to the rest of the season living up to that honor. This was _soo much **better than the poor trailer** for it originally had me expecting._ Yes, I later learned more information โ€” that Damon Lindelof, of LOST and The Leftovers, was behind it โ€” eventually getting me more interested; but I certainly wasn't confident, given the trailer. This has me remembering how good the movie actually was... I kind of lost track of my memories of how intense it was and how involved it's last act was... ==Anywho, on to the real reason I had to post something.. Timepoint 59 mins and 59 seconds in the episode is what finally gave me what I was truly waiting to validate: that there was no way that the soundtrack could be so NIN without actually being **NIN / Trent Reznor / Atticus Ross.**== 10/10.

Holy shit! what an ending to an excellent season 1.

That was a very enjoyable watch. From start to finish. Even despite the fact that I had/have no prior knowledge of the source material. Even though I was clueless from the beginning and remained clueless until six or seven episodes in, every second was immensely enjoyable. But now that it's over, and I've completed watching it, I can't help but feel disappointed at myself for taking as long as I did to finally understand, even if it was just mildly, what was going on. I'm sure this would be so much more enjoyable to watch a second time, and that's saying quite a lot. Of course, I doubt I'll ever get around to it. Like I never do when I say I'll rewatch a season of a show or a show in its entirety. I know there's so many details, information, and references that will raise the level of enjoyment for those deeply familiar with the source material, and deeply invested in the show overall. As someone who's still pretty clueless about everything, really, in regards to the show, even I think the hate directed at this show by certain people is completely and utterly ridiculous. Don't succumb to what those people are saying and not bother giving it a shot as a result. This show is enjoyable for those who have no idea what's going on, and don't have prior knowledge to assist them. And this show is even more enjoyable for those that do.

Ffffffffinally...adult superhero shows have arrived

garbage don't waste your time

I think this will be tough to get into for those who haven't seen the movie or read the series. I did both, but I still had to read through some recaps after each episode to make sure I knew what was going on. Basically, it just won't hand you much in the way of exposition. If you can invest the brain effort to keep track of the story though, I think it's worth it. In terms of superhero shows, it's much more similar to The Boys than any of the Marvel/DC stuff out right now: it's more mystery/suspense over the long term than episodic action. Regina King is fantastic.

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!
