Critic Reviews for Young Sheldon: Season 1

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (17)

What we have instead is a warm-hearted, coming-of-age tale in the style of The Wonder Years. But without a Parsons-level comic talent among the cast, this series will live or die based on whether the writers can create characters worth falling for.

February 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

Top Critic

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.

September 22, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

September 24, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

Thankfully shorn of laughter track, it will surprise some with its (relative) delicacy, its long, nice, un-busy single-camera shots, at stark odds with its frenetic parent show.
