That smaller kid actually plays an incredible Young Sheldon!! Like seriously he's identical to Jim Parsons lol
OmniviumVelocity
He's really articulate for a 10 year old
Diyanzy
Haha “I am not that fragile” “I am fragile” But I am not THAT fragile 😂😂

Fun fact: the Big Bang theory has been on the air longer than young Sheldon’s actor has been alive

Correcting Jim Parsons on the "Big Sheldon" thing was so Sheldon-ish.
Ava Meyers
Damn the resemblance!
Santiago Mejia
They looks like they are Father and son.
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.

Jim Parsons always looks so proud of Ian Armitage. It looks so cute when he smiles at him.
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
Chloe Foo
"Well my dad is sorta a actor. He was in Hamilton" THIS KID DOESN'T GRASP HOW COOL THAT IS
Gabriel Gonzalez
"I love how you don't refer to yourself as old Sheldon." Sums up this kid's charm in a nutshell.
Denise
iain is such a polite child omg
CBA Eduardo
the older sheldon is the best

I want to watch young Raj n Howard or when Raj came to America n met Howard n how they met Leonard n Sheldon.
Christy Christy
I pray Hollywood's pedos don't get their hands on this sweet boy
Morgan Huls
If you cover up Jim's face except his eyebrows and forehead, he kind of looks like Jimmy Fallon.

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.
Mary Tryonis
This little boy fits this part perfectly. He's so cute.
Hector Palacios
I'm not getting what people don't like about this child because I'm not american. But, from my perspective the kid is amazing, talking so openly being 9 years old.
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.
Beth Hulme
Seeing sheldons actor not being sheldon is trippy 😂
Emma xoxo
It’s weird to see Jim Parsons acting normal instead of mentally strange........

Young Sheldon is a funny show! The talks with Meemaw are priceless!
Frank Janosko
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.
psi421
The kid nails the character. Good show. I hope they pick it up for a few seasons.

*MARK MY WORDS* This kid is gonna be gay

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!

How are they together? Who invented the time machine

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 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!
Johannes Life
Ich mag die Serie ^-^

Never get rid of a bow tie, bow ties are cool

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.
ZodiakAsHell
Watched all 13 episodes and i want more of Young Sheldon.
Young Reap
Smart kid. Great speaker. I hope he keeps his light. Kinda cringy tho.. Lady in the rude was rude to the lil kid and took shots at him and talked over everyone
snsmystic

EliteSniperPlayzz
Jim Parson looks so different from regular sheldon
Mallery Williams
Lol, this kid tends to digress like rose nylund on an episode of The Golden Girls... All I can hear is Dorothy zbornak saying, come on Rose, bring it in for a landing! Haha, thus all the adults at the table trying their best to move him along to keep the pace. 😂
Siddiqa Ahmad
"It's a warm summer evening in Greece "😂
Ginger Ninja
i somehow think he is a gene manipulated experiment, so they increased his IQ.. i'm pretty sure those things arent a impossible thing anymore..
Ethan Prescott
Only thing is we never see his sister or brother in Big Bang
Agnimitra Roy
The host in red dress is rude...constantly interrupting the kid.

Eu só queria uma legenda em português;-;

I can’t believe this kid is only 10 years old. He is like born to be in front of the camera. So articulate and calm and even humorous!

I have one question: Are we going to hear Soft Kitty in Young Sheldon
