Critic Reviews for Young Sheldon: Season 1

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (19)

It has got a lot of heart, and plenty of laughs.

March 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Young Sheldon ends up having a mind of its own, even if it's a prequel to a long-established hit.

September 22, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
Top Critic

Little Sheldon is an easily anxious fellow who tattles and condescends. He'd be a turnoff except that the charming young star and Parsons' narration confer great appeal.

September 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Young Sheldon is surprising for all the right reasons; so much so, it's hard to tell exactly where it will go next.

September 25, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

What's funny in Sheldon/adult is grating in Sheldon/child.

September 24, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
Top Critic

A halo of nostalgia and family drama permeates the series, and the mix is surprising. [Full Review in Spanish]
