- Good spin-off4 star

It great to know how Sheldon was growing up and it delivers a great way into the life of Sheldon Cooper

- LOL5 star

Soo funny!!!

- Young Sheldon THE BEST!5 star

Best Show on TV! Exceeds Big Bang Theory! Funny does not always equate to stupid! Intellectually entertaining! Science Rules!🎉🧠

- Awesome5 star

It’s brilliant and funny! Can’t wait to watch Season 2.

- Keep making more seasons!!!5 star

I think this show is hilarious! The little Sheldon acts just like the grown Sheldon and it makes it seem so realistic. The Big Bang Theory is a great show also so it’s no surprise about this show. 🤙

- Somebody wrote a TV show about me?5 star

This show is amazing! Sheldon’s childhood mirrors so much of mine as an INTJ child. Granted, he is smarter than me at math but the show captures a lot of the emotions and idealism towards justice that I had experienced when I was younger.

- Comedy and drama both...5 star

This is more than simple comedy; there is a growing up lesson embedded in each episode, which makes it charming as well as funny. For a kid growing up different, that seems like a decent approach to telling the story. Wondering if we will see some of the negative anecdotes about Sheldon’s father that we learned in TBBT.

- Sheldon: the origin story5 star

I waited until season one was over to review because, to be fair, every show finds itself during that first year. Young Sheldon is charming. The reviews here that dismiss it, I feel, miss the boat. One reviewer feels the writers insult Jesus. Spend time with Mary, and you’ll see a mom showing not only a genuine belief but also love: Love and acceptance of her “different” child even if he rejects her beliefs alongside a devotion to continue to pray for him. I’m from a Texas Christian family myself and can tell you that her way of expressing her beliefs are much more like Jesus than most I was witness to growing up in the South. (“Turn or burn”.) Those who wanted a fully fleshed Sheldon Cooper don’t remember their own journey to becoming who they are now - the little things that set us on the paths that ultimately made us who we are. That’s what we get to see. It’s exquisite, to use Iain Armitage’s word of the day from Sesame Street. And finally to those who simply critique Iain, Wow. In Sheldon Cooper, across two shows, we have two of the finest actors bringing one of the most complicated characters written to life. That one of these actors is 11 years old and does this flawlessly is remarkable. Catch interviews of this precocious young man and then judge again how much skill it takes to reign in that much life and 11-year old-boy ness to become Sheldon Cooper. Add to the fact that Iain has a heart bigger than most adults’ put together, and we have the perfect young man to bring Sheldon’s “origin story” to the screen. Sheldon as we’ve grown to know him isn’t an aloof robot, he’s peculiar because his massive intelligence created a separation between him and the people around him. He compensated in all these wonderfully inventive ways that let him thrive in the world and become a leading theoretical physicist. Watching how he managed that is heartwarming, yes, but pretty darn funny week in, week out. The whole crew on this is creating excellent comedic television. I thank them for their hard work. And encourage anyone who hasn’t given it a fair chance to do so. Many thanks to the ensemble cast, Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady, Jim Parsons, and the writers for bringing this to us each week. Can’t wait for Season 2.

- I couldn’t agree more topografik1 star

This show bashes Christians like me and I hate that. Aside from that this show is sappy. If this is a spin-off of the Big Bang theory, then I fail to see resemblance cause it feels like a syrupy drama. I say stick to older sitcoms, ones that were made back when people did not think sex and blasphemy was funny. Yes he had a rough childhood but people don’t think about that. They’re pretty much cheated by the marketing pigs at CBS into thinking it’s enjoyable for bbt fans (I’m sure it is for most) and Sheldon is a total BUTT

- Love love this show. Season 2 please5 star

Love love this show. Season 2 please

- Great show5 star

Great script, perfect choice of characters together and believable show. Very funny

- Everyones got it wrong5 star

It’s enjoyable but what the viewers don’t understand is that Sheldon’s childhood past wasn’t a good one and that’s what people are forgetting from the Big Bang theory it’s not about being funny it’s about telling us the viewer about how bad Sheldon had it growing up I mean Sheldon talks about it throughout the seasons so yeah it’s a bad childhood everyone.so don’t be upset about how this show is handling it I think it’s ok and remember bad childhood=drama show🤯

- Awesome show5 star

This is the best even if I haven’t watched a lot of Big Bang theory I still understand it keep up the good work

- So funny5 star

Love this show! The kid is adorable and the show gives you real laugh out loud moments a little too rare with comedies today. If you’re a fan of Sheldon definitely watch!

- Enchanting!5 star

One of the most captivating shows I’ve seen. Brilliant! The show frames the development of Sheldon’s intellect within a conservative religious environment. While Sheldon’s scientism may be pedantic, it is never without innocence and love for his family and their view of the world. I had the same reaction to this show as I have had to various British comedies. Young Sheldon is a gentle, sympathetic, Horatian satire, in contrast to Hollywood’s typically over-exaggerated, post modern, salacious and incomprehensibly absurd dramatic irony. The entire cast is spot on! Iain Armitage captures the essence of a young Sheldon Cooper with depth and charm. Zoe Perry plays the mother we want for Sheldon and could only hope for ourselves. Lance Barber plays the beer and football loving everyday American dad in a lovable and highly relatable way. Annie Potts! What a perfect choice for Sheldon’s inimitable Meemaw. Even Sheldon’s siblings, who could easily have appeared as simple foils to Sheldon’s character, are anything but that. Raegan Revord plays the plucky Missy, the twin with all of the emotional intelligence. And, Montana Jordan deftly portrays Sheldon’s big brother who is determined to make his own way next to his brilliant brother. I immediately purchased the entire season and eagerly await each new release.

- The Best Show Ever!5 star

The casting and writing of this show are the best I have ever seen. There isn't a single weak link in the cast--even the old biddy in church and the teachers are to die for! It is such a pleasure after decades of lousy/trashy tv to finally see something that is thoughtful, colorful, warmhearted and so funny. As for the actor who plays "Young Sheldon" he has nailed it--he so convincingly and richly slides into the family then is suddenly out of place again in the impractical world--as it is with most geniuses. Add him to the absolutely magnificent cast of supporting actors and the brilliant writing and you have a winner--thirty minutes of blissful escape and laughter!

- One two many bazingas5 star

I watched lil Shelly as I call it and I notice it didn’t have enough bazinga per episode, overall though I’d give this series an apple and a bread log outta ten

- This show is stuck in a time warp1 star

I watched "Young Sheldon" once, and Sheldon comes across as a know-it-all who is stuck in the 1980's.

- Fantastic5 star

I never saw a TV show this good you should watch it😃😃😍

- Beyond pointless1 star

CBS just wants to squeeze every cent out of Big Bang theory license because they know the general audience will eat it up

- Very clever comedy5 star

I was unsure about this spin off when it first came out, the pilot seemed mediocre at best, however, this show has gone from strength to strength and I am now loving it! I think the voice of Jim Parsons narating bits of the show helps, but the characters are really coming into their own! I now look forward to watching this every week!

- If you love The Big Bang5 star

I'm not sure this stands on its own. But I don't think it was meant to be. If you love the Big Bang Theory you will enjoy and, more importantly, understand this series. No coincidence that Sheldon, Jim Parsons, narrates this series. It is his back story, as best as can be remembered. If you love the Big Bang series you will enjoy it, foibles and all; as an intelligent spinoff. If you are not there, or you do not like the Sheldon character, this series is tough sledding. I'm there.. PS. Look at Sheldon's sister in this series and check out the episode where we meet Sheldon's (adult) sister and tell me they didn't find a perfect match. Lord, even the mannerisims are similar!

- I hate this show.1 star

Awful. The child actor is terrible and it’s so overly exaggerated to the point of totally predictable garbage.

- Not accurate1 star

If you’re going to make a show set in the 80s, don’t use dialogue and PC garbage ideology of today.

- Is this supposed to be a comedy2 star

It's sentimental to the point of being sappy with the occasional joke thrown in. At least there's no laugh track.

- Nonsense1 star

This show may be palatable if you watch it as a stand alone show , but if in anyway you go expecting the charm and wit of tbbt or comedy in any form then you will find this show to be utter garbage

- mehh2 star

the pilot was episode was alright 2nd episode mehhhhh im giving it one more and if it dosent pick up with the humor im over this show

- where is the show5 star

Bought the season, only one episode so far. Where are the rest? If it's not going to come soon, I would like my money back.

- Please just give us more of this5 star

It was amazing

- Awful1 star

I love Big Bang Theory but this spinoff is Awful...just Awful. No charm and no laughs. Watching the pilot was painful enough. It won't survive.

- Wonderfull all around5 star

Takes me back to the Wonder Years

- Love it!5 star

I wasn't sure what to expect, but this show is a great mix of comedic timing and heartwarming moments. A great spinoff of Big Bang Theory! I look forward to watching more.

- Outstanding5 star

Thrilled it is not just a replica of The Big Bang Theory and omitts having a laugh track. The casting is perfection and I predict this will be a new favorite this season.

- Pleasantly Surprised!4 star

All pilots have a hard time of kicking off a show and offer a gamble to the viewer, to keep watching, or not. I was pleasantly surprised with how fast the show pulls the audience in and how the audience feels for the character development already taking place in the pilot. The interactions with Sheldon and his parents particularly stood out and, to pull a Hallmark moment, the show actually had a heart-warming effect. I am looking forward to the next episode and to see how the show develops.

- Very Good So Far 😉5 star

I am a big fan of the big bang theory and so far this one is really a winner to watch too , hopefully it makes it like the big bang theory.

- Life Changing5 star

I never thought a show could have the comedic timing of That 70s show, the expressive characteristic traits of Friends, and the quotability of Seinfeld, but this show was a complete game changer. Young Sheldon made me feel emotions I never thought I could feel, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend or relative that has a good sense of Highbrow humor like me. Young Sheldon is a triumphant masterpiece and I would rate it a 9.4/10

scarceissuperskinny - garbage1 star

The single worst TV series I've ever seen. The tone moves so fast, from depressing to "funny" and you can't tell whether you're supposed to be laughing at the jokes or not. I hate it.
