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.

Connie (aka Meemaw) often went to a casino across the border in Louisiana throughout the series. The series takes place starting in 1989. Casino gambling wasn't made legal in Louisiana until 1991, and the first casino wasn't opened there until 1993. Furthermore, the casinos that opened around that time were all riverboats that initially had to be moving up and down the river before any gambling could commence, but the casino Connie often went to was land-based. The first (and as of 2021, only) land-based non-tribal casino with table games in Louisiana is Harrah's New Orleans, which didn't even open until 1999. See more
