September 26 will see the premiere of Young Sheldon, exclusively on Warner TV (StarHub TV Ch 515 and Singtel TV Ch 306), this Tuesday at 8.35pm, right after first episode of The Big Bang Theory Season 11.
Starring Iain Armitage, tells the story of nine year old Sheldon Cooper, living and growing up in East Texas. Life for Sheldon isn’t quite a smoothe ride-along, especially when Sheldon is an out-of-the-ordinary member of the family who possesses a mind so advanced in subjects such as mathematics and science, he sticks out like a sore thumb, both at home and in a home state where spending Sundays at church and the fierce love for American football are the standard and acceptable forms of behaviour.
His father, George, is struggling to find his way as a high school football coach and as father to a boy he doesn’t understand. Sheldon’s mother, Mary, fiercely protects and nurtures her son in a town where he just doesn’t fit in.
Sheldon’s older brother, Georgie, does the best he can in high school, but it’s tough to be cool when you’re in the same classes with your odd 9-year-old brother. Finally, there’s Sheldon’s twin sister, Missy, who sometimes resents all the attention Sheldon gets, but also remains the one person who can reliably tell Sheldon the truth.
Shot in a single camera format, Young Sheldon is a half-hour comedy which gives fans a satisfying peek into the childhood and life of the brilliant mind in East Texas, long before he emerges as the legendary and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper.
However, unlike its principal source material the Big Bang Theory, where nerds and geeks Young Sheldon cans the canned laughter tracks and takes a slightly more morose look at growing up different from every one else.
Accurate representation or not, there’s no denying its popularity. In the much awaited returning eleventh season, Howard and Bernadette are expecting their second child together, and at the same time; Sheldon made a marriage proposal to his girlfriend Amy.
Sheldon also seeks the blessing of one very important man in his life who is perhaps the world’s most important theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author – Stephen Hawking. However, Amy later reveals that she is upset with Sheldon because the latter had discredited her research. Will the proposal go through, or will it fall through for both Amy and Sheldon?
The Big Bang Theory Season 11 will premiere the same day as the U.S. on 26 September, and will be available exclusively on Warner TV (StarHub TV Ch 515 and Singtel TV Ch 306), and will run every Tuesday at 8.10pm.
