Two very good episodes of Young Sheldon where not only did he have a delightful space to be enjoyed on the scene, but each of his family has a space that he has not seen before. But it was in the episode “A Pineapple and the Bosom of Male Friendship”That we had a very good episode about mental health.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Here we have Mary completely concerned with how her son deals with the things he needs to do, and that makes her very fearful for her obsessions, how to resolve an issue not completed by Einstein, but that’s when she decides to help him get along with Dr Sturgis after his separation from his mother, which shows that she really wants someone who understands her son close by.
In “Hobbitses, Physicses and a Ball with Zip“, We see him talking to Dr. Linkletter and he indicating that Sheldon go to another world, so he meets The Lord of the Rings with the librarian. His scene as Gollum having to choose between fantasy and science was hilarious.
Likewise, we see him worried about Sturgis in “A Pineapple and the Bosom of Male Friendship“, Not only he as the family, and the way they talked openly about mental health, about how some institutions work, medication… Everything was treated in a very natural and explanatory way, without disrespect. So they informed and only later went to the jokes, which did the episode well.
Now, with each episode having a character developed is wonderful …
Meemaw learning that Sturgis was thinking about her and preferred to walk away from the hospital was pretty cool, and even though she had a “rematch” date with Ira made her realize how in love with Sturgis’s random information.
Missy approaching George and him growing up on his daughter was amazing. He was teaching her to play baseball and even though it was at first to win a boy, in the end they got together in something of a father and daughter that is very good for both, since George did not feel that connection with her or with Sheldon right.
Young Sheldon doing well on their themes and on the personal and family development of their characters, and going beyond Sheldon. It is worth mentioning that at each opening we have the family wondering about the boy’s eccentricities.
