The comedy series revolves around the spiralling life of Mrs Midge Maisel and her unexpected journey to the stand-up comedy stage when her husband leaves her.

If you happen to love the genius theoretical physicist Dr Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory, then you will definitely like this spin-off series based on his childhood. This funny sitcom is a self-contained show so far making it easier for the audience getting introduced to young Sheldon – the boy with a genius-level IQ. Jim Parson, who played the role of Sheldon Cooper, narrates the life of his 9-year-old avatar. Young Sheldon, living in East Texas, has a gifted mind which is capable of advanced mathematics and science; and is relatively naïve dealing with the world that is not ready for him. This is surely a fresh side to an old character.
