Review

This week’s story of stubbornness and resentment appears to have little to do with our “mighty little man”, Sheldon Cooper. His father George (Lance Barber) bristles over the brisket when Meemaw (wonderful Annie Potts) refuses to give him her famous recipe. One double pranking and a break-in later and George and his wife Mary (Zoe Perry) are on the brink of divorce. But then Sheldon’s eidetic memory comes into play, leading to one of those sweet-then-salty pay-offs that both Young Sheldon and Big Bang are so fond of.

While not the funniest episode to date, there’s a truthfulness to the family scenes that great casting has given the show. 

Summary

The Cooper kids try to come up with ways to resolve a family feud when Meemaw refuses to give George Sr her secret brisket recipe. US comedy, with Iain Armitage, Lance Barber and Annie Potts, and narrated by Jim Parsons (adult Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory).
