This isn't what I expected. I was just imagining Big Bang Theory-esque scenes, but this is more like In the Middle with Sheldon. I like it. Still had me cracking up too.

I think this is going to be one of those shows that people are going to love or hate. So much hate and doubt regarding it before the first episode even aired! I just watched the first episode and liked it. I'm not sure if it's going to last though. I'm a huge TBBT fan and even love the current seasons. You're just going to have to try it out for yourself and see if you enjoy it or not.

After watching the pilot episode , I'm not hooked yet . I'll give it a few weeks to get better . Pilot had no laughs for me . Casting seems good , especially his Mother . They're kind of in a dangerous genre , first it's a spin-off , and second it's a retro family comedy . There are always lots of family comedies to choose from . Right now in fact one of the best retro family comedies of all time-The Goldbergs- happens to be running . I'm a fan of TBBT , especially Sheldon , but I'm not necessarily going to watch Young Sheldon . November 2 is the scheduled date of the second episode . Edit - After 5 episodes , I can say that I still don't find the show funny . The male characters seem to be the weakest link in the show . The Father , brother , and Tam are forgettable while his Mother , sister and Grandmother actually have personality . That said , it's still quite watchable for rainy day viewing .

Dead man walking. I see it getting cancelled halfthrough the season.

If they wanted to milk the franchise, this was not the way to do it. Hate the original, and the spin off looks like cringe. Going out of my way to point that out.

Well. It is just as (un)funny as the Big Bang Theory. But in opposite to that, it is really well made. They found a lot of great matches for the roles, and specially Ian as Young Sheldon plays a really convincing role as the Sheldon we all already know. also the mother is a great find, specially since the actress is the daughter of the Tbbt Mary Coopers actress. also it is much better than a sitcom version, and much more serious, but it is as a spin-off totally depending on the Big bang theory. nobody who hasn't watched Tbbt will understand anything in Young Sheldon, since mostly these are inside jokes or they are relations to what already is known from the big bang theory. But, since this is a spin-off, I did not have high hopes, since most spin-offs of great shows are catastrophic. (Friends for example was brilliant while Joeys own show was so bad to be cancelled after two seasons. ) but, since I knew that the Big Bang theory is the most overrated Show of all time, which is in my opinion not even remotely funny, this spin off is much better. But, still in my opinion the only funny scenes are those with guest stars such as Elon Musk, who also is one of the few person who made a funny Big Bang theory scene. all in all: I expexted less, but it is quite good and I will keep on watching the show.

Love how they cast the daughter of the actress who plays Sheldon's mom on The Big Bang Theory to play her younger self she is just like her mom

Family / Comedy. Emphasis on former. Not really diggin' it.

I like this better than Big Bang Theory which it prequels. Lighthearted comedy, which is not vulgar, edgy or pushy. It has elements of nostalgia and does some inside jokes of foreshadowing (if you've watched Big Bang Theory). Its stronger qualities are comedy = 6/10, dialog = 7/10 and story telling = 8/10.

nice show, gives you a little chuckle in this big bad world. its great to see where all of Sheldon's hang ups and quirks come from and hopefully will get a few more seasons.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
