October 3, 2017
Lorre is using the built-in, enormous love the TV audience already has for Sheldon to examine what life might be like for someone who's perceived as different, even if that difference is genius.

The accents are spot-on and the lead performances are excellent.

It's too hung up on a main character we know isn't going to and can't change for the better.

The experiment at least initially looks like a bright idea --- yielding a breezy, likable series, closer in tone to The Wonder Years or ABC's family comedies.

It's that focus on family, with Sheldon as an oddity and an outsider but still loved, that makes Young Sheldon sweeter than The Big Bang Theory.

Fortunately, [Iain] Armitage is adorably watchable - so much so that we don't really need Parsons butting in to tidy up the stories.

Young Sheldon is a work in progress, but if it finds a way to meld the pathos of Sheldon's existence with gentle but reliably effective humor, CBS might be on to something with this prequel.

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

A trip worth making.

Young Sheldon [is] a single-camera series that's light on laughter but just north of dramatic territory, quite handily.
