A Young Sheldon Cooper?
Sheldon Cooper is one character we cannot get enough of. And even after The Big Bang Theory is gone (hopefully never) fans still have hope for more Sheldon. The prequel series about a young Sheldon Cooper promises to quench our thirst for more Cooperisms. So what do we want from this show?
A Different Side of Sheldon
In The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon is seen often times being distant and unemotional. I for one am intrigued by the idea of seeing him growing up with his family. What will it be like to see him with people he loves and maybe even openly cares for? How do they all deal with him and his condition?
Of course, fans all expect Laurie Metcalf to be returning as Mary Cooper. But what can we expect from Sheldon’s siblings? We know they bullied him a lot. So perhaps we get to see a Sheldon who is more the victim rather than the one barking the orders. It will give us nice insight into his personality on TBBT.
Several childhood memories are brought up by Sheldon Cooper. And some of them we want to see enacted out in the new series. Not only are they humorous moments, but they help connect the past Sheldon to the present one. Here is a couple.
Sheldon is bullied a lot in school and by the neighbor kids. He invents a sonic death ray to stop them. It would be a great thing to see him creating this to use against his mortal enemies.
One of the funnier memories brought up was Sheldon building a nuclear reactor in the backyard. Even for someone who has such a high IQ, this seems hard to imagine at such a young age. Like where would the child buy yellow cake uranium? It could be a good scene for the writers to express his resourcefulness and wrap up ends that might be a little loose.
In one episode, we see Sheldon going through all his childhood work in inspiration for something new. He comes across his paper written when he was 5, titled “A Proof That Algebraic Topology Can Never Have a Non-Self-Contradicting Set of Abelian Groups”. Inside he finds something that might be the key to changing how we calculate ferromagnetic hysteresis. It would be great to see him coming up with this as a child.
