I haven't watched many, if any, of these sorta football documentaries, despite the sport literally and unequivocally being my favourite thing; away from film and television, of course! I've found the Amazon ones and the such to be cringey (I'm looking at you, Mikel Arteta) and, with respect, too American. Thankfully, 'Welcome to Wrexham' is the first that I've definitively enjoyed and viewed more than a few episodes. It's a good blend between the football, i.e. Wrexham, and showbiz, i.e. Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. Another thing I appreciate is the run time, with the episodes (at least as of S1 E5; time of review) being very short at around 25 minutes. Reynolds and McElhenney add humour and interest to it, and the constant looks around Wrexham as a club make each episode a top watch. In a word - recommended.

I wanna say that I was drawn to give this a try because of Ryan Reynolds and thought he’ll be in it a lot making this series a bit funny, but that didn’t happen so it’s a disappointment for me. I don’t want to watch the history of a barely professional football club… There are thousands out there with similar stories, and for the love of God, this is just a game, it’s not life.

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!
