The biggest storytelling problem of Young Sheldon, a spin-off of The Big Bang Theory, is its connection to its parent show. The prequel, which started when Sheldon was nine years old, needs to be cautious in over-developing his character and should end with him in his rudest state for a clear transition into the original series. The show should focus on micro-progress instead of significant ones and subject Sheldon to less-than-ideal situations that would revert those improvements. CBS can stretch out the narrative beyond George's death and inch towards The Big Bang Theory's timeline. Despite criticisms from die-hard fans, the show has been successful and confirmed to run at least until season 7.
