Critic Reviews for Young Sheldon: Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (17)

... a moving and even motivational series. [Full review in Spanish]

Cinema Movil

It's extremely melancholy, even with an obligatory sweet family moment at the pilot's climax, and Lorre and Molaro ... are still figuring out how best to craft jokes for this format.

[It's] warm and embraceable but not yet essential viewing. But it may get there.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

[Iain] Armitage is great as Young Sheldon. And Zoe Perry is wonderful as Sheldon's mom, Mary.

Salt Lake Tribune

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.

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.
