Personally, Finding Carter is one of the most entertaining shows I’ve ever watched. It has emotionally sucked me in! When I first watched the show, the first season was already over so I managed to watch 8 episodes in one day. Each plot twist has me on the edge of my seat and I think all other fans could say the same. Finding Carter is unlike any show on right now. It deals with real emotions and friendships and the story line is very believable.

Did you know that Leonard’s glasses usually don’t have lenses in them? (2)

Personally, Big Bang Theory is truly one of the most unique shows out there. I love watching it because just like Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard, I too love a TON of geeky shows, movies, and books. The references to all of those things exist in each episode and I love catching them. The sarcastic humor is on point and even during emotional moments the characters are still joking around to keep the mood light. This show brightens my days.
