TV Trailer – Young Sheldon (CBS)

Hey 3.5 readers.

BQB here.

So on The Big Bang Theory, scientist Sheldon Cooper has often referred to his difficult upbringing in rural Texas, raised by a family that did not understand or particularly care for his brilliance.

CBS, in keeping with Hollywood’s trend of never being original, has devised a Big Bang spinoff, Young Sheldon, chronicling the life and times of Sheldon as a ten year old high school student in the late 1980s.

Gotta admit, the idea sounded terrible to me until I saw the trailer.  Then I found it really moving.  So perhaps, on occasion, a spinoff has the potential to be great.

For example, in the trailer above, Young Sheldon becomes a boy narc, ratting on every student he sees for trivial rule violations.  To Sheldon, this seems only logical.  People do something wrong, they should be called out on it.

However, Sheldon’s dad explains that he was once a football coach, and he saw some inappropriate activity and reported it.  Was he applauded?  No.  He was fired.

Thus, Sheldon learns a valuable lesson – that his father isn’t the failure that he thought he was and also, there’s logic and then there’s social etiquette.  Bottomline – pick your battles.  Suck up and look the other way on the petty stuff so that you’ll be prepared when the time comes where you really have to report a serious wrong.

Looks great.  I’m a little iffy on whether or not it will have any long lasting staying power, but it’s worth a try.

Hey 3.5 readers.

Stats indicate a lot of you have been checking out the most recent Toilet Gator chapters lately.  Cool.  If you have five minutes, I hope you’ll drop me a comment and tell me what you like and don’t like about it.  I’d love to hear the criticism, positive or negative.

Also, if you’d like to read it from the beginning, you can check it out over on Wattpad.  

If you’re not a Wattpadder, no worries.  You can still read it on this fine site.  You’ll just have to click where it says “Toilet Gator” in the left hand corner of this post (by the title) and then do a lot of scrolling to the beginning.
