Despite being sisters, each girl has her own unique character. Meg is romantic and sensitive, Jo is a forward thinker that likes to climb trees, Beth is very shy and scared of people (but that doesn’t prevent her from loving them), and Amy is very sly and takes advantage of the fact that everyone likes her.

A perfect drama that involves the battle between idealistic doctors and creative ones.
Young Sheldon, 2017
This series is a spin-off of the hit show, The Big Bang Theory and explores the not-so-simple childhood of young genius, Sheldon. Sheldon’s mom is a very religious woman and his father likes to spend evenings in front of the TV with a bottle of beer in hand. Additionally, it’s quite difficult for Sheldon to get along with other kids because he is more interested in scientific experiments than toys.
Fun fact: The actress who plays the role of young Sheldon’s mother is actually the real daughter of the actress who plays the role of adult Sheldon’s mother on The Big Bang Theory.
This is a great series that puts you in a good mood even in the stormiest weather.
