Forget about Netflix, Starz, HBO and whatever other producing companies out there. The BBC is where the good content is at. The production value on this is through the roof. The casting and acting were great (they even went as far as getting actors with a whole bunch of different nationalities so they'd be true to the character the were portraying). The writing was extremely compelling. I was hooked from episode one. The war aspect is starkly portrayed in all its horror, but the most compelling part, imo, was the human element, primarily presented thorough Harry who starts out being sort of naive, only to have a very rude awakening. But the fact the he doesn't lose his honorable, charitable, idealistic qualities even in the face of horror and heartbreak, was one of my favorite parts. The special effects and sets were also amazing and so very realistic. A definite 10/10. More people need to be watching this for sure!

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!
