    Young Sheldon

    I have been really enjoying this show! I was skeptical about it before it aired, but the cast is phenomenal! I am especially impressed with Sheldon's (young) mom, (Zoe Perry). She's a brilliant actress, and totally has Laurie Metcalf's mannerisms and accent down! (BTW, I just read that Zoe is actually Laurie's daughter in real life... interesting)

    Also, the young actor playing young Sheldon, (Iain Armitage) is really good. He's adorable, and believable as Sheldon Cooper.

    The icing on the cake is the narration by Jim Parsons. If you love Big Bang Theory, it's worth your while to check this show out!

    I am surprised that there was no thread for this...I too have enjoyed the show.

    Shockingly, I've been enjoying it too. The little boy that plays Sheldon is amazing and so good at it. And I love the actress as young Mary Cooper

    I didn't particularly care for this show at first, but it's grown on me. All the child actors are very good, as are the parents. It's fun to see Annie Potts as Meemaw! I don't recall whether last night's appearance of Billy Gardell as Sheldon's friend's father was the first one, but that was a nice surprise. It all sort of adds more depth to grownup Sheldon on TBBT, too.

    The last episode that aired was hilarious! I loved Sheldon's conclusion of his religion research to start his own "math" religion... LOL!

    I'm looking forward to seeing Sheldon's family at the wedding, with all this backstory. I know Meemaw and his dad are dead, but am trying to recall if we ever "met" his brother and twin sister on TBBT. Anyone? I only recall his mom being on TBBT.

    I vaguely recall his twin sister on an episode but not his brother. If I recall, she was hot and all the guys were gaga over her.

    Yes and she was exactly the same toward Sheldon as she is on the new show. Eye rolls all around.
    We have not met the brother. When did Meemaw die? She was on the show to meet Amy and let the cat out of the bag about the ring (and wasn’t very nice to Amy).

    I remember the episode when Sheldon's sister came to visit...and yeah the MeeMaw wasn't at all nice, lol. If you are a BBT enthusiast, Young Sheldon just makes so much sense.

    I love this show...has made me tear up more then once.
