For young 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 kings. More family conflict, difficult choices, and Easter eggs that allude to Sheldon’s recollections from The Big Bang Theory are hidden throughout the season.
