Young Sheldon is better than Big Bang for two reasons: 1. Iain Armitage A young acting prodigy plays the role of a young genius convincingly and most attractively. He plays a boy that many adults would detest in a manner that most adults will find endearing. 2. NO LAUGH TRACK :-) After watching the first episode of Young Sheldon I took a peek at Big Bang. My peek lasted till the first mindless laugh track spewed out of the speakers. Then I couldn't get away fast enough. Maybe Young Sheldon (i.e. Iain) could persuade the Bangers to let the audience decide when to laugh?
