DVD Review: Young Sheldon: The Complete Second Season

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Young Sheldon was created and executive produced by The Big Bang Theory’s Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro, Young Sheldon is also executive produced and narrated by Jim Parsons who plays Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory. The star cast features Iain Armitage, Zoe Perry, Lance Barber, Annie Potts, Montana Jordan and Raegan Revord.

For 10-year-old Sheldon Cooper, it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas.  Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are king.  And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him.

Young Sheldon makes the shocking discovery this season that he has some new competition in the form of Paige, the new girl at school who’s as smart as he is. Maybe smarter? Georgie gets a crush on Veronica and even though he gets shut down and even humiliated at first, it eventually works out the way he wanted it to in the beginning. Sheldon and Missy participate in a twin study that doesn’t end exactly the way their parents thought it would. Simply put, Sheldon overthinks way too many things.

Sheldon finds out that his Meemaw likes playing video games as much as he does. This is one of the many reasons why Sheldon loves his Meemaw. Meemaw and Dr. Sturgis take things to the next level and start dating. We also find out that Dr. Sturgis and Sheldon are so much alike. Sheldon finds out that some of his growing pains are in his belly and he has to have his gall bladder removed. Missy steals Meemaw’s makeup for picture day. Sheldon takes on the school bully and doesn’t go the way he thinks it should so he quickly retreats.

The packaging comes with a nice slipcase. The front features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes season three details, some images and list of special features. There’s also an insert inside that includes a list of the episodes with synopsis, more images and specs. Each DVD disc is red and features the series logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Young Sheldon: The Complete Second Season picked right up where the first season left off and continued with the laughs as we follow the hysterical coming-of-age journey of Sheldon Cooper. The writing for this spinoff series continues to be good and I’ve really gotten to love these characters – all of them. Most of the storytelling keeps everything light-hearted with its dry humor but the characters do have to deal with sensitive topics like faith, bullying, abuse, divorce and even miscarriage. We get to learn even more this season about the Cooper family and how close they are through their trials and tribulations that includes lots of laughs as well as a couple of serious moments they have to deal with. This is a character driven sitcom and the cast continues to do such a great job with these wonderful characters of theirs this season. Not only do we discover where the word “Bazinga” finally comes from but we also get a sneak peek at the much younger characters from The Big Bang Theory which was so awesome to see for this geek.Young Sheldon: The Complete Second Season is now available on a 2-disc DVD set.
