Did You Know?


When Sheldon is working on his parents' taxes, he notices check #129 is missing. But a couple married as long as the Coopers (presumedly about 16 years) would've written more than 30 checks in the time they would've had a joint checking account. (US checking accounts in the 1980s usually start their Check numbering at #101.) See more »

Young Sheldon

Young Sheldon; a spin-off of The Big Bang Theory, that was created for the fans of Sheldon Cooper is on the contrary, more disappointing for the viewers to watch their beloved character being ripped off by dull writing. Its primary objective from the first episode wasn't set off to create a humorous environment which would have been suffice but as it started aging on screen the target started to blur out and is now shooting arrows in the dark confusing and disappointing the viewers from the offered thin material.

Ian Hermitage at the center of it is palpable for this tone of the series and is appreciative in its role. The relationship between MeeMaw and Sheldon isn't coming off as anticipated even though the genuine effort is clearly visible and admirable. The narrative often attempts to weave out a morale out of the daily conflicts that usually goes around in one's house, but at the compromise of the integrity and the quality of the product, it surely isn't adequate enough to be appreciated.

Focusing on the adult socialization and conversations has always worked and came off in a bit mature sense and addition to that, just to spice it up, the younger characters meddling on their business works like a charm and offers enough laugh especially from Sheldon's perspective. The sibling relationship too, is aptly constructed if not executed, but amidst all these hokum, it still comes out in the limelight shining bright and wise.

Season 02

After a disappointing start from the previous season, the expectation might have gone lower but the necessity is still of quite larger margin and if doesn't evolve any characters more than their offered one-dimension, it still ought to project gripping and enthralling acts.

A Financial Secret And Fish Sauce

The screenplay is gripping and a bit frizzy, with few gags that may be familiar with seen-this-seen-that one-liners, it still is an improvement no matter how empty it goes; Jordan's lines works like a charm.
