The Young Sheldon (S1 to S6) Series narrates the origin tale of the eccentrics and unconventional behaviour of adult Sheldon that we saw in ‘The Big Bang Theory’ show. Thus it explores the life of the Nobel Prize winner.

It is worth mentioning that actor Jim Parsons (who played adult Sheldon in ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ show was the one who first thought of the ‘Young Sheldon’ show. Initially, he kept it to himself, assuming Chuck Lorre had already thought of it. However, when he eventually approached Lorre, he learned that Lorre had never considered the idea. And after watching it, we enjoyed the wonderful journey into his childhood life.

Came Here For ‘Young Sheldon’ But Stayed Back For His Family & Friends

Spoiler Free Review: Young Sheldon (S1 to S6) Series

The introduction

Just a day after the 10th anniversary of its parent series, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (2007-2019) series, the ‘Young Sheldon’ show made its debut in 2017. Last year, in November 2023, it was announced that the seventh (7th) season of ‘Young Sheldon’ would be the final season. So, this month, we re-watched its first six seasons and watched the final 7th season of the show. In this article, we recap and review the first six seasons of the same.

The storyline/plotline/synopsis/summary

The “Young Sheldon’ comedy show is narrated by Jim Parsons, the actor who portrays the adult Sheldon in the widely acclaimed romantic comedy ‘The Big Bang Theory’ (2007- 2019) series.

The said show transports us back to the year 1989 when we met a remarkable young kid named Sheldon Cooper. At the tender age of 9, Sheldon (Iain Armitage) defies convention by skipping four grades and embarking on his high school journey. Accompanied by his less academically inclined older brother Georgie Cooper (Montana Jordan), Sheldon grapples with the challenge of being understood by his family, classmates, and neighbours.

However, his mother Mary Cooper (Zoe Perry) equips him with a powerful tool to combat bullies: the knowledge that his father George Cooper Senior (Lance Barber) holds the esteemed position of football coach, and his brother is an integral part of the team. While his twin sister Missy Cooper (Raegan Revord) may not possess Sheldon’s exceptional intellect, she possesses an extraordinary ability to decipher people’s intentions and foresee the future that awaits this young prodigy. It is worth reminding that even young Sheldon encounters distinct obstacles because of his social impairments.

Thus, we get to learn about the child prodigy young Sheldon Cooper, his lovely family, his friends, teachers, and acquaintances. It is an intimate and emotional journey into his past as we discover his childhood days.

What did we like in the show?

Well, for more than a decade-long period, we have enjoyed the ‘The Big Bang Theory’ show. So when this new Young Sheldon (S1 to S6) Series offered us a chance to uncover the childhood days of one of its eccentric yet brilliant characters it made perfect sense for us to watch it. Now, this year, we have finished watching the final season of ‘Young Sheldon’, we admit that we found it slightly better than the original parent series.

But why is that?

Maybe, because it is more of a family show than the original show.

It boasts of the 9-year-old whiz kid Sheldon, the series has his twin sister smart Missy, his elder brother practical Georgie, his loving mother Mary, his protective father George and of course the free-spirited grandmother Meemaw. They form a typical middle-class family, trying to do their best. This is despite all kinds of challenges that they face in their lives. We also liked the natural vibe, relatable verbal exchanges and love-hate interactions among all of them. They all seemed so natural and relatable. Their character arcs are endearing.

One could easily identify with all of these characters. No wonder, this show has a dedicated set of fans. Also, the fact is that almost all the members of its ensemble cast have very well-defined roles. And they all are charming.

The conclusion

Despite her shortcomings, the ‘Meemaw’ (Annie Potts) is our favourite character in the show. But, we fell in love with almost all of them, the bunch of regular folks like us, who are doing the best that they can do, in this tough world. That is what life is all about. With its ups and downs, it makes people grow, both physically and emotionally. As we bid this entertaining comedy-drama series goodbye, do not forget to read the review of the Young Sheldon (7th & Final Season/2024) Series too. Young Sheldon brought a lot of nostalgic memories back to all of us, it made us revisit and relive our childhood memories. That is one of the biggest positives of the show.
