Sill rocky uncertain genre but i think the episode was actually way better than the premiere
3 November 2017 | by See 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.
