Did anybody else watch the premiere of this show? I forced myself to watch it (I cannot stand grown Sheldon/Big Bang Theory), and I was pleasantly surprised. I thought the show was a much more realistic depiction of Asperger's than is seen on The Big Bang Theory, and I actually could relate to it. Young Sheldon isn't all that arrogant and obnoxious, so I liked him, as opposed to his adult persona. I also liked how the show looked into the way his obvious Asperger's affected his siblings' lives and parents' lives. I thought they did a much better job with that than Netflix's Atypical did. I'm actually looking forward to more episodes.

I had no idea there was such a show. Might be interesting and, hopefully, much more honest about Asperger's Syndrome than the BB Theory (where, to my knowledge, it has never been brought up or even hinted at). I used to actually like TBBT when it first came out, but now I can't stand it.

This is about to be shown in the UK soon.

I am hoping it will be as good as BB.

I still watch the odd episode of BB.

I am glad that someone has seen Young Sheldon and not thought it was terrible or disappointing.

In The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon is explicitly said to not suffer from Aspergers by the creators of the show.
