Spaceship J2 with dozens of colonists on board flies to one of the planets of the nearest star system. But a few light years from their destination, the starship crashes.

The Robinson family manages to survive, but their lander crashes on an uninhabited planet far from its intended destination. And this new house is not very welcoming.

The original Lost in Space series, released back in 1965, was popular in the United States, but few people in Russia have heard of it. The authors of the remake presented the old story in a modern way: thus, the show became more complex from a dramatic point of view. Now it raises important family and social issues.

But at the same time, there are many naive and touching moments in Lost in Space. And for watching with children, this series is just perfect.

The Apple TV + series tells about the youth of the American poet Emily Dickinson, who gained fame only after her death. But at the same time, the authors adapted the biography of a celebrity so that teenagers will be happy to watch the show. After all, everything here is modern: language, humor and even music.

There, a mysterious stranger left several puzzles intended for the one who discovers the thing. The owner of the notebook turns out to be Dash’s age named Lily, who is thus looking for a friend.

The love story of two young New Yorkers is told so chastely that even very young children are not ashamed to show the series. But some adults may find the show too cloying. In addition, there will certainly be some viewers who will find the line about homosexual romantic relationships inappropriate for minors.

If you are a person of open views and at the same time do not mind watching the most cute and kind rom-com, where absolutely all the characters will be happy at the end, feel free to turn on this series.

4 Sheldon’s Childhood

According to the plot, the hero is still quite small, but he is already so ahead of his peers in the development that he studies with high school students.

But at the same time, the child has no idea how to communicate with others, and does not particularly want to do this. Because of this, a lot of problems arise, but Mary’s mother supports her son in everything, because she is sure that with such abilities he will go far.

The series based on the trilogy of the same name by Philip Pullman will be of interest to absolutely everyone.
