1 Pilot
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.

Great show, however season 3 is a waste of money, and I would like Google to give me my money back. At this current moment there are only 7 episodes available for download were other countries will show that there is 21 episodes. Also looking at Australian streaming channels it will show all 21 episodes. Google make a move and put all episodes up or give me my money back. In the meantime I warn other people not to buy this season.

I really have enjoyed this series. I watch BBT and have always loved the development of the characters. I was hesitant about this show but I found it fresh and funny and a wonderful prequel to BBT. It may be characters I know but it is done differently. It is kind of like a wonder years type show. just twenty years or so on. The boy that plays Sheldon does a great job with the part, he really seems like he could be young Sheldon. I hope there are a few more seasons of this made,. There is a little bit of Sheldon in so many people I know.

Had a chat with GooglePlay about when the rest of season 3 will be available (in Australia as I'm in Australia) and unfortunately the creators/owners of it haven't been able to confirm that to GooglePlay and haven't given them permission to release it yet. So it's not that GooglePlay have it and are withholding it - they just simply haven't been given the rights yet. Fingers crossed it will be soon, as I really enjoy this show.
