Critic Reviews for Young Sheldon: Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (17)

Young Sheldon ends up having a mind of its own, even if it's a prequel to a long-established hit.

Little Sheldon is an easily anxious fellow who tattles and condescends. He'd be a turnoff except that the charming young star and Parsons' narration confer great appeal.

Young Sheldon is surprising for all the right reasons; so much so, it's hard to tell exactly where it will go next.

September 25, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

What's funny in Sheldon/adult is grating in Sheldon/child.

... a moving and even motivational series. [Full review in Spanish]

November 29, 2017 | Full Review…

It's extremely melancholy, even with an obligatory sweet family moment at the pilot's climax, and Lorre and Molaro ... are still figuring out how best to craft jokes for this format.
