Did You Know?


In The Big Bang Theory (2007), episode 4.18, The Big Bang Theory: The Prestidigitation Approximation (2011) Sheldon (Jim Parsons) makes reference to when he was a child and got into trouble with Homeland Security after purchasing uranium to use it to charge electricity. We see what happened in this episode. See more »


The FBI states, "someone living at this address recently called a mining operation in Canada and tried to buy uranium". In The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon's mother already explained Sheldon tried to "buy yellow cake from Chad", not Canada. See more »


Mary: All right, Tam. I decided I was gonna make you a real Texas dinner: bar-b-que chicken and brisket.
Tam: Thank you.
Mary: Well, I figured you were probably tired of stuff wigglin' around on your plate. OK, let's say Grace. Now, Tam, when I say 'Jesus', feel free to say the word 'Buddha' in your head.
Tam: I'm actually Catholic.
Mary: Oh. Well, that's too bad.

Sill rocky uncertain genre but i think the episode was actually way better than the premiere
3 November 2017 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So i saw a couple critics review and they were mostly like "Young Sheldon is back Strong ...etc" but i totally disagree , yeah it was "stronger" than the first episode.

The script this time was more organized , had more laughable moments which even when the genre was a bit vague, in here it gave the show a solid structure to be more comedic than narrative ,, by the way i'm being candid and forthright because when you watch for Chuck Lorre top rated award winning sitcoms like "Two and a Half Men", "Mike & Molly", "Mom" and "The Big Bang Theory" i can't just stay shut and settle for a weaker performance.

But light at the end of the tunnel is where i mentioned that it is getting more into real comedy and the script is funnier so , fingers crossed.

As a fan of Chuck and the original show i will keep on watching and i think it will get better.
