According to the site, “Young Sheldon” is a nostalgic trip to the late 1980s, that many wouldn’t mind making as the characters usually have teachable moments.

It not only allows for each character to learn how to be kinder to one another, but the series also focuses on how life as a parent to a gifted child can be.

While “The Big Bang Theory” made fun of Sheldon’s mother, Mary, “Young Sheldon” points at her as a woman who, even with her strong faith, doesn’t fully understand her child.

In fact, fans have noted that whenever an episode focuses on Mary, which is played by Zoe Perry, the show turns out to be better than it is expected.

Additionally, “Young Sheldon” is a single-camera sitcom, which translates to it being filmed like a movie without a burst of audience laughter to punctuate its punchlines, like its parent show.

Be that as it may, the cast of the show seems to be having a good time as the titular character, Sheldon, played by Iain Armitage joined “Morning Extra” to talk about the show, just before season 3 aired its finale.

During the conversation, the young star gave a few tips and advice to parents who are homeschooling their children amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.

Iain isn’t the only one who brings the show to life as CBS’s website noted that Montana Jordan, who plays George “Georgie” Cooper Jr. and Raegan Revord, who plays Missy Cooper, Sheldon’s twin sister, also make “Young Sheldon” enjoyable.

As it turned out, Iain and his on-screen twin sister happen to be the youngest members of the cast as they were both born in 2008, according to a report by Cheat Sheet. While Raegan was born on January 3, 2008, Iain was born on July 15, 2008.

Iain made his acting debut in 2017 in an episode of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” where he played the role of Theo Lachere.
