What an episode! loved everything - the costume, the casting, the setting, the cameraworks, the plot and it’s all so enthralling. Can’t wait for the next episode.

WOW! If you liked Desperate Housewives (which I loved), you'll love this. Marc Cherry has created a fantastic witty drama that entertains and intrigues. The cast is perfect for each character and really carries the show very well. Probably one of my favorite new shows of the season!!

avatar

Wow, it kept me bated breath all along... I'm impressed how well this is written to keep you in suspense and surpise you while you know what will inevitably happening... Once I saw the first episode I just couldn't stop to watch, it's addictive haha. Also, very nice transitions and camera moves, it was very appreciable ! One of the best shows I've seen this year, thank you Marc Cherry !

Why is this show rated MA? There is NO NUDITY. Seriously, all these gorgeous women but no nudity. I still rated it 10 though. Funny show.

avatar

By episode 5, the [spoiler]gay husband[/spoiler] is the only thing holding this show together. Rest of chars blow.

I found the first three episodes to be bad, it really isn't to my liking to watch for 50 minutes who's gonna sleep with whom. They went a bit overboard there especially in the 2019 story. I thought of quitting, but I'm glad I sticked with it, because after episode 3 the show picks up the pace, they stopped focusing on hookups and focused more on the story and I started to enjoy every second of this. The plot turned out to be really good, the one from the '60s is the best in my opinion. Casting is great as well as directing, particularly in the last episode. So what started disappointing, ended as one of the better shows I've seen lately, therefore I can only recommend it. 8/10 from me.

everything was fine until episode8, especially the 2019 threesome disappointed me so much, it turned into 'two girls fighting for a guy' again just like all other cliche. the same feeling staying around for the 60s scene. and the 80s just went terribly dramatic, feminist serial? i dont think so. However the costume and photography are fabulous.

Desparate Housewives for the new age of TV! Really good show, well made, and tons of fun to watch. Lucy Liu, as in everything she's in, is **AMAZING**.

Surprising little gem. I highly recommend watching this series.

This show is original and wonderful! It’s soapy, darkly comedic, true crime, aesthetic - everything I could ask for in a show.

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!
