Young Sheldon: Season 2 TV review - Aussieboyreviews


This season is less quirky, funny and entertaining, but it’s still amusing and bright. The second season of Young Sheldon focuses more on religion, romance and other random things, still in a comedic fashion.


The childhood life of child genius Sheldon Cooper as he copes with his quirky family, school and other everyday problems.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Although the second season is less quirky, less humorous and it focuses heavily on religion and dating rather than random issues, it’s still an amusing depiction of Sheldon Cooper’s childhood. Iain Armitage is a brilliant yet awkward Sheldon, but the rest of the quirky characters from the first season are just not as funny or well-designed. Season 2 also has a big focus on faith in the episodes, rather than having one episode about faith and the rest about other quirky subjects. Other than that, this show is still delightful for fans.
