Storyline

It's 1989 and 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper has skipped four grades to start high school along with his less-intellectual older brother. As he struggles to be understood by his family, classmates and neighbours, his mother arms him with the best tool she can come up with: reminding bullies his dad is the football coach and his brother is on the team. His twin sister doesn't share his exceptional mind, but she has a much clearer vision of what life has in store for the young genius. Jim Parsons, who plays the adult version of Sheldon on "The Big Bang Theory (2007)," narrates.

Trivia

The idea of the show first came to Jim Parsons. At first, he did not discuss it with Chuck Lorre because he thought that Lorre must have considered it before. But when Jim finally consulted him, Chuck liked the idea and had not thought about it before. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series, the Cooper family church (First Baptist Church of Medford) is seen. It is always the common Baptist design of a brick building with a porch supported by four white columns, and a white steeple. There are, however, some differences among the episodes. For example, Young Sheldon: Demons, Sunday School, and Prime Numbers (Season 1, Episode 11) shows a building with round windows and two front doors on the façade. Later episodes, using views of the First Christian Church, 4390 Colfax Avenue, Studio City, California, USA, the building has rectangular windows and one front door. Other differences include the 'thought for the day' sign in front of the church, which sometimes faces the street, and sometimes faces away from the church, at an angle to the front; also, the decoration at the top cutout of the sign is different in various episodes. Further differences can be seen in the area to the right of the front of the church, which sometimes shows a brick building and a water-tower in the distance, with the word 'Medford' on it. (These don't exist at the Studio City location where the photos of the church were taken.) See more »

Love it
2 October 2017 | by aledrienSee all my reviews

Not sure how people are crapping on this show,.. it is wholesome,charming and reminds me of a better version of Wonder Years..

how they made a better version of wonder years i have no idea,.. but here it is,..

maybe it's the influx of mindless remakes and zombie movies since early 2000s that have made people forget what good programming / writing and Casting look like!?
