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.

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 »

Thought it was brilliant! Not sure what some people here are on about...
16 October 2017 | by chrisalgarSee all my reviews

I thought it was a great first episode and a brilliant idea. There's so many ways this show can go if done correctly. Taken a character already loved and showing us all the bits we hear pieces from on The Big Bang Theory. I think it was a bit reckless using an actor from The Big Bang Theory to star in a different role in this spin off but can put that down to me being picky.

Overall I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing where the series goes!
