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.

Hollywood has officially ran out of ideas
30 September 2017 | by xacebop-09424See all my reviews

We've seen how well shows can do with and without a great idea. This show was never going to be a great idea and was a last ditch effort to squeeze money out of what's left of the big bang theory. take a look at what shows are successful on television and are talked about everywhere. you got game of thrones, walking dead, etc. if you're trying to make a comedy i can understand how with the restrictions of basic TV it is going to be much more difficult but TV has evolved since the big bang theory.

sometimes i wonder who is hiring these TV executives who act like they have never watched a day of TV in their life and solely focused on business school. it's whats wrong with Hollywood. look at broad city, fresh off the boat, nathan for you, rick and morty, curb your enthusiasm, always sunny, south park, (literally any successful comedy) etc. the projects have heart and people who are driven to want the shows to succeed. young sheldon feels like someone said "here, we're gonna spin off big bang and hope you can leech off it's viewers" but does nothing original or interesting to define itself in it's own right, and it's clear there is really no drive or soul.
