The Gratitude of Young Sheldon: Appreciating George's Transformative Impact in Big Bang Theory

Actor Lance Barber, who plays George in the prequel spin-off "Young Sheldon," is grateful that CBS changed the character from his portrayal in "The Big Bang Theory." While Sheldon and Mary described George as a lazy and drunk father, "Young Sheldon" depicts him as a devoted family man. Barber believes this change humanizes George and allows for fun and compelling storytelling. The prequel may eventually tackle George's cheating scandal mentioned in "The Big Bang Theory."
