A clever chronicle of disappointment, the downfall of a myth, Dr. Huxtable meets Mr. Hyde. One of the most resounding descriptions of sexual abuse that broadens the look towards the depth of its consequences. Kamaus Bell reflects on the artist and the sexual predator, and on the "rape culture" that he has allowed (and allows) that defends the guilty and disapproves of the victims. The best definition is given by a victim: "Bill Cosby is a master at his craft. Whether it be acting, comedy or raping, he is a master."

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!
