Critic Reviews for Young Sheldon: Season 1

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (17)

What we have instead is a warm-hearted, coming-of-age tale in the style of The Wonder Years. But without a Parsons-level comic talent among the cast, this series will live or die based on whether the writers can create characters worth falling for.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

Young Sheldon the character might be genius offspring, Young Sheldon the show, not yet. Could do better.

February 23, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

But for those who can handle a smattering of schmaltz with their diet of sitcom, the laugh count should more than compensate.

... 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.

November 14, 2017 | Full Review…

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