epguides is a website dedicated to English language radio and television shows. Established in 1995 as The Episode Guides Page, it originally offered fan-compiled episode guides for hundreds of United States and United Kingdom series. [1] In 1999, the site's name was changed to epguides and moved to a separate domain name.

It was recommended by television historian Tim Brooks and Earle Marsh in the seventh edition of their book, The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows 1946–Present , [2] and again recommended in the eighth edition published in 2003. [3]
