In what may be unsurprising news given the success of its parent show, Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon seems to have been a hit following its UK broadcast debut, with fans on Twitter praising the comedy-drama series after watching it on E4 last night.
Starring Iain Armitage as the younger version of breakout Big Bang character Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons in the main series), the new show follows Sheldon’s attempts to fit in at high school, make scientific discoveries and deal with his unusual family – and while not everyone had expected to like it, the viewers were lapping it up on Thursday night.
#YoungSheldon is walking a very thin line. I'm not sure which bits are played for laughs and which bits are highlighting the problems high functioning autistic children have in school. What is for certain is that the programme is not a comedy.
Still, for the most part people were excited to see more – even if it did mean a bit of a wait…
Loved #YoungSheldon but only watching half and hour a week in a world where all we do is binge watch? I think I’m going to get bored of waiting each week ??♀️ should have played 2 back to back to make the hour most shows do
