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

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.

With Young Sheldon, Lorre's wielding a sledgehammer with reckless abandon. And, in fixing it, he is producing perhaps his most inspired work in years.

While the story does revolve around Sheldon, his mother is just as worthy of the spotlight.
