I wanna take a moment to talk about Young Sheldon: the fact that so many people aren’t giving the show a chance because they hate TBBT makes me sad, because its relation to Big Bang couldn’t be anymore irrelevant to the shows quality.
Without the context of being a prequel series, it’s just a charming show about a child prodigy struggling to grow up in a religious home and state, with a style of comedy and writing that’s more comparable to sitcoms like Malcolm in the Middle. It has amusing characters (I love, love, LOVE Meema), and some touching moments, some episodes even touch upon some genuine issues (there’s one episode where Sheldon’s religious mother has a crisis of faith after the death of a young neighbour, and it’s handled in a very dignified and sympathetic way).
Also, Sheldon’s behaviour is overall just a hell of a lot more charming when it’s coming out of a child.
Seriously. Forget the Big Bang relation. It’s an underrated gem of a show.
