For 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas. While the gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his family must find a way to deal with him. His father, George, is struggling to find his way as father to a boy he doesn’t understand. Sheldon’s mother, Mary, fiercely protects her son in a town where he just doesn’t fit in. Sheldon’s older brother, Georgie, does the best he can, but it’s tough to be cool when you’re in the same class with your 9-year-old brother. Sheldon’s twin sister, Missy, sometimes resents all the attention Sheldon gets, but she’s the one person who can reliably tell Sheldon the truth. Finally, there’s Sheldon’s beloved Meemaw, his salty, hard-drinking Texas grandmother who’s supportive of her grandson. Big Bang Theory audiences have come to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper. This comedy gives us the chance to meet him in childhood, as he embarks on his awkward journey toward the man he will become.

Very entertaining. Helps heal the wound of no more Big Bang Theory. But sort of unfair. I love Jim Parsons, I do. But he took the jobs away from all the people on BBT. But still retained his Sheldon role. Because he does partisapate in Young Sheldon. So this show is very good, but kind of unfair. Just sour grapes from loosing my favorite series.

Adult Sheldon leaves to much open ground to wonderment about his actual childhood for anyone to not to want to see this... Shame this is not more media friendly... I am sure inquiring minds want to know. About the show, it was set up big... it didn't let down though, the acting was good- on cue and all, and the characters were realistic; except Shelley, but that's where the big set up comes in... Little Shelley was superb with what he had to portray and how... loved it! Thanks for sharing!
