Moving and interesting
The first episode was really moving. I was glad to hear about Sharon's journey in Ep 2 and the insight from the doctor and the other caregiver was really heartfelt. I loved the third episode. The doctor in that was gives a poignant and honest insight into what it takes to work in this field. Really cool.
