When Sheldon states that he would not touch his brother's hand until 17 years later "thanks to the invention of Purell." This implies that it was invented in 2006 based on the plot taking place in 1989. However, a simple Google search will state that Purell was invented in 1988, one year before the statement would have been made. See more »

A FEEL GOOD sitcom that blends humor with a greater appreciation for the unique
26 September 2017 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

I love it! Young Sheldon being the prequel to the adult Sheldon of the multiple EMMY award winner The Big Bang Theory will thrive based on the eclectic cast of characters who are living in the 1980's. I see very little need to compare it to TBBT but I will say that it has taken sixty (60) years since the family themed Leave It To Beaver once aired, and I do see comparisons between the Cooper family and the original (Beaver) Cleaver family.

We see how young Sheldon and his family cope with his genius whereas the rest of Sheldon's family are a normal working class family. Sheldon's father is the high school football coach, his mother (who is played by the real life daughter Zoe Perry, of adult Sheldon's mother played by Laurie Metcalf) relies on her faith in the church, his big brother is a jock, and his twin sister has a mouth on her like a bar maid.

I cannot wait to see when they introduce the audience to the other woman in Young Sheldon's life. That person being Sheldon's mee-ma who apparently will be played by Annie Potts (Designing Women). Another pleasure of Young Sheldon is the series is void from that horrible staple of many comedy series, that being the canned laughter box. Thank you, thank you a thousand times thank you. Let's let the audience decide what is funny and what is not. For now I am laughing and I really enjoy Young Sheldon.

A perfect 10/10
