I super want to love this, but its super edited and auditioned. You can totally tell that Anne Burrell is super to the script and Alex Guarnashelli just wants a good chef. Anne is lovey dovey (boring, bye) and Alex is hardline (shes an iron chef, what do you expect, oh perfection? Thats right.) Its super edited, and hammed up. Obv the blue team got the better chef.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ 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 πŸ™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 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!
