Young Sheldon is about Sheldon, but no one watches the series for him.
Jim Parsons was involved Young Sheldon to help tell the story. As the series progressed, the characters developed and everyone had a favorite. (Almost) no one chose Sheldon.
The favorite characters
Everyone was an instant fan of Meemaw, but ultimately it was Sheldon’s twin sister, Missy, who became everyone’s favorite character. Sheldon gets into Young Sheldon namely far too pampered and protected by his mother Mary, while Missy’s problems are recognizable.
Missy’s rudeness and disrespect is explained by her parents’ neglect. A problem that unfortunately occurs all too often in a family where one child needs a lot of attention.
Missy vs. Sheldon
George is not an attentive father and Mary is therefore only concerned with Sheldon, causing Missy to ask for attention in her own way. This is certainly not the best way, but she has managed to gain more sympathy from the fans.
Young Sheldon can be streamed on Prime Video.
