That smaller kid actually plays an incredible Young Sheldon!! Like seriously he's identical to Jim Parsons lol
Emma xoxo
It’s weird to see Jim Parsons acting normal instead of mentally strange........

Jim Parsons always looks so proud of Ian Armitage. It looks so cute when he smiles at him.

Haha “I am not that fragile” “I am fragile” But I am not THAT fragile 😂😂

"Well my dad is sorta a actor. He was in Hamilton" THIS KID DOESN'T GRASP HOW COOL THAT IS

People saying the kid is annoying 😒. He's a child. Children get excited easily! And even more in this kind of situations. He's doing an interview with adults. And tbh, if he didn't intervene, he wouldn't talk since the interviewer is mostly focused on Big Sheldon. I get that he's the original Sheldon and he's mature. But if so, they shouldn't have invited the kid. And saying he's annoying.... He's talkative. And that's good. He doesn't have a lot of experience in this, so with the time he'll know how to control himself. But for the time being, let him be.

"I love how you don't refer to yourself as old Sheldon." Sums up this kid's charm in a nutshell.
ZEALOUS -G
I want to watch young Raj n Howard or when Raj came to America n met Howard n how they met Leonard n Sheldon.
Eli Birch Hardwick
I hate how the interviews keep cutting them off mid sentence I mean I now they are on a schedule and that they have to talk about certain things but it's very annoying. I kinda felt sorry for Ian and Jim
Ava Meyers
Damn the resemblance!
Bella Maschke
I really don't appreciate them constantly cutting Iain off. We teach are kids to be polite and respectful yet adults continue to disrespect kids. That does not teach them. If you want them to act like adults, treat them like one.
Mary Tryonis
This little boy fits this part perfectly. He's so cute.
Beth Hulme
Seeing sheldons actor not being sheldon is trippy 😂
Don't Kill My Vibe
Why call that child if you're going to talk over him and jump to Jim. It's his chance and he is the one acting. Let him get used to interviews since he's gonna be doing that a lot in future. And people calling him annoying should know he is a child, he is young and energetic and really excited. What's wrong with him wanting to talk when it's his show as young Sheldon. I've seen many child actor who are in acting business since such an early age don't tend to have normal lives. Maybe he won't live normal if the show becomes hit and they keep on bringing other seasons. Let him live his life as a child.

I pray Hollywood's pedos don't get their hands on this sweet boy

It's funny how kids try to emulate how the adults around them talk. You can tell that "little Sheldon" is doing this XD. I saw a girl in a toy store once having a very serious dialogue with herself about which toy she should get. The way she was talking was probably similar to how her mom talks to herself about which product she wants to buy.

How are they together? Who invented the time machine

If you cover up Jim's face except his eyebrows and forehead, he kind of looks like Jimmy Fallon.

I love how laurie metcalfe's daughter plays the mum in young sheldon. When I first watched it I was like my god she really looks like the original Mary Cooper. Looking at the cast and who she was I then found out she was her daughter! Great casting!

Young Sheldon is a funny show! The talks with Meemaw are priceless!

Spoiler alert. Young Sheldon grows up to be a Physicist

I didn't think I'd like Young Sheldon because Jim Parsons plays that character so well I felt anything less would be a cheap knockoff. However, YS is very well written and cast. Iain is great and the girl who plays his sister is a scream.
Josh How
U got to have skill to memorize anything that comes out of sheldon
Falala Dips
That little boy is actually smart but a more social type compared to the role he plays 😍
Ghaleb Dweikat
big bang theory is older than young sheldon

OMG Jim act like a normal person when he take off the Sheldon skin!!!!! Which i cant get used to it......
Armindo Stinson
Young Sheldon is one of the best comedy serie that I already saw.! The characters are amazing.!

At first I was uninterested in both shows. To begin with the opening of the Big Bang Theory made me think it was an attempt to make fun of an Autistic person, someone like my son. It turned my stomach. But my best friend assured me it wasn't and even though it's possible that Sheldon might really have a form of autism, the way the show shows how he's grown, from the beginning where he was totally uninterested I. Others to the point where he met Amy, and later Married her, being totally in love and ready to start a real life gave me hope. It gave me hope for my son. Both young Sheldon and Adult Sheldon have had challenges, I see them in my son's life, but in other forms. The common thing is a n encyclopedic knowledge of what they are empassioned with. To see both shows now with that understanding gives me hope for my son's future. Not in the way he will progress, but in the way society will see him. Thank you!

Woah when theyre next to each other its like one of the sheldons time traveled
Jimmy Wood
The rude interviewer who you think is a lady is actually a lizzard. She wants to eat the young boy if only she had a opportunity. Theres underground layers under the CBS studios where these reptiles actually conduct there savage rituals.
taran singh
As a Big Bang Theory fan I also want to see Young Penny in Nebraska
ZodiakAsHell
Watched all 13 episodes and i want more of Young Sheldon.
Johannes Life
Ich mag die Serie ^-^
Hari Lakha
I didn't know that Jim was gay, but I guess it makes more sense now, considering how he talks....a bit. But, I'm happy for him! He's got himself a relationship and he's moving forward! That's the best thing you can really do in life!
Kent
It's looks like time paradoks. Good job Sheldon, good job.
Anjali Sharma

John Sacapano
5:38 is such a precious moment doe haha he’s like “Heckz yeah tiny me” as Ian agrees to something he’s saying
Khine Nwe Mra
I hate how the interviewer would just interrupt Jim when he’s talking about Iain
Booo Ya
But the real question is how are they in the same room? Did Sheldon invent time travel?
CanIGet1000SubsWithNoVideos
You can see the connection between Jim and Iain AND the Old Sheldon to Young Sheldon, the connection is just amazing
TPD
Im not sure if most of you realised this but there are some contradictions between the early Big Bang Theory episodes and Young Sheldon. They say how Sheldon's dad wasnt very smart, that he fought with a Bob cat for licorice which doesn't really fit his dads character in YS and bunch of others. Also a fun fact the actor that plays Leonard's childhood bully in TBBT is also the same actor that plays Sheldon's dad in YS
ah- me
Sorry but the white spot on Jim's jacket really bothered me lol
Ronald Shepherd
CBS IS TAKING THIS SHOW OFF THE AIR CAUSE PARSON'S IS LEAVING OH WAHHHHHH WRITE HIM OUT OF THE SCRIPT AND GO ON THIS IS BULL
snsmystic
What an intelligent kid! And he's completely sweet and precious :) I want to pinch his cheeks :D
