Young Sheldon 2024 tv series review season 7

Young Sheldon has achieved what many only dream of: becoming a successful spin-off of an immensely popular show, airing on broadcast television, and thriving for seven remarkable seasons. The sitcom, which debuted on CBS in 2017, emerged from the beloved series The Big Bang Theory, known for its iconic character Sheldon Cooper, portrayed by Jim Parsons (Hidden Figures). While The Big Bang Theory boasted an expansive ensemble cast including Johnny Galecki (Blossom) and Kaley Cuoco (The Flight Attendant), Young Sheldon narrows its focus to a younger iteration of Sheldon, brought to life by Iain Armitage (Big Little Lies), chronicling his upbringing as a boy genius in 1980s Texas.

The show’s creators took a bold step by fleshing out Sheldon’s family members, who were seldom explored in the twelve seasons of The Big Bang Theory. Despite this risk, they crafted well-rounded supporting characters that seamlessly integrate into the narrative. With its seventh and final season premiering on February 15, Young Sheldon continues to captivate audiences with its compelling characters and storylines.

Young Sheldon’s writing is subtly brilliant, effortlessly delivering jokes without the need for exaggerated setups or prolonged pauses for emphasis. Like its predecessor, The Big Bang Theory, the humor is intelligent yet understated. Moments of physical comedy, such as Missy (Raegan Revord) trying coffee for the first time in Season 7, are executed flawlessly, eliciting substantial laughs.

One standout aspect of the show is its portrayal of Meemaw, impeccably portrayed by Annie Potts. Unlike typical depictions of older characters, Meemaw defies stereotypes, maintaining a dynamic personality and actively engaging in life’s adventures. Her multifaceted portrayal challenges ageist norms prevalent in Hollywood, offering a refreshing and inspiring portrayal of a woman in her 70s.

Young Sheldon continually explores new facets of its characters, allowing them to grow and learn from their experiences—a rarity in sitcoms. Season 7 showcases Mary Cooper’s (Zoe Perry) evolution from a stern figure to a more relaxed and relatable presence. This development adds depth to her character, making her more engaging and endearing to viewers.

Additionally, Season 7 introduces Sheldon to new challenges, such as adjusting to a prestigious institution in Germany where he’s no longer the smartest person in the room. This shift provides a fresh perspective on his character, highlighting his growth and resilience in unfamiliar situations. Similarly, Georgie’s (Montana Jordan) journey into fatherhood adds complexity to his character, showcasing his growth and sense of responsibility.

However, Season 7 isn’t without its flaws. Georgie and his fiancĂ©e Mandy’s (Emily Osment) portrayal as reluctant parents feels underdeveloped, missing opportunities for meaningful interactions with their baby, Cece. Despite Georgie’s initial apprehensions about fatherhood, his character arc lacks exploration beyond financial concerns, overlooking potential emotional depth.

Nevertheless, the strength of Young Sheldon lies in its exceptional cast, particularly its young actors who have matured alongside their characters. Iain Armitage’s portrayal of Sheldon is remarkable, capturing the essence of the character while infusing moments of vulnerability and humanity. His performance resonates with viewers, solidifying his place as the definitive portrayal of young Sheldon Cooper.

As Young Sheldon concludes its final season, it leaves behind a legacy of remarkable storytelling and unforgettable characters. While it may be the end of Sheldon’s journey, the impact of his adventures will undoubtedly endure, thanks to the talent and dedication of its cast and crew.
