Shel­don nav­i­gates child­hood

Western Times - - LIFE -

Young Shel­don, Nine, Mon­day at 7.30pm

THE Big Bang The­ory view­ers have come to know and love the ec­cen­tric and ex­tra­or­di­nary Shel­don Cooper, and now in a new half-hour com­edy se­ries they have the chance to meet him in child­hood.

Young Shel­don fol­lows his in­no­cent, awk­ward and hope­ful jour­ney to­ward man­hood.

It isn’t easy grow­ing up in Texas when you are a once-in-a-gen­er­a­tion mind ca­pa­ble of ad­vanced math­e­mat­ics; sci­ence isn’t help­ful in a land where church and foot­ball are king.

While the vul­ner­a­ble, gifted and some­what naive Shel­don deals with the world, his very nor­mal fam­ily must find a way to deal with him.

His fa­ther, Ge­orge, does not un­der­stand him and his mother, Mary, is fiercely pro­tec­tive.
