It's exactly what it says it will be - without a laugh track
I'm sort of amazed at people who watched the show and then say things like 'I love Sheldon on BBT, but this kid is an obnoxious little jerk!' Right - and so is adult Sheldon Cooper. Face it, his whole character (and most of the characters on the show) have gotten their laughs from the fact that they were basically put into 'fish out of water' scenarios. Youngish guys who are super nerds and slowly find a way to interact with the opposite sex without completely making a fool of themselves. Leonard did it, married Penny, that took what - 7 years? 8 years? Raj did it, started talking in front of women without being drunk and now seems to juggle 2 or 3 woman each season. Howard did it, yet Sheldon never figured this out. An extremely smart guy who still, after a decade, is still making the most hurtful, obnoxious, out of place, deceitful comments and actions towards people who simply continue to be his friend! Be honest, how many of you would still even be talking to him, - let a lone be friends with him - after all of the horrible things he's said and done? And evidently he's been doing this his whole life. And he never learns. He never figures out how much he hurts people, how inappropriate his words and actions are - which is just like what young Sheldon is doing, and I'm sure will continue to do. I used to like BBT but I stepped watching several seasons ago mainly because of Sheldon and also because once everyone found girlfriends - got married - had kids, the show just became another basic studio sitcom - and not a very good one. And since 'Young Sheldon' has no laugh track to cue people what's funny, this show has one strike against it already. The next strike is the fact that it's about young Sheldon Cooper, an obviously mentally troubled adult. Strike three? The kid playing Sheldon has zero charisma - he's just not likable.
