Young Sheldon

Rockets, Communists, and the Dewey Decimal System - S1-E2

Other mistake: As Young Sheldon is a prequel series to Big Bang Theory, this episode is at odds with episode 2-13 of Big Bang Theory, "The Friendship Algorithm," in which Sheldon is unfamiliar with books like "How to Make Friends and Influence People," which he reads in this episode of Young Sheldon, produced nine years later but taking place twenty years earlier.

A Patch, a Modem, and a Zantac - S1-E6

Factual error: At the start of the episode when someone is talking at the podium, there's a a periodic table behind him on the wall. On the left of barium, 'Sc' for scandium is there instead of 'Cs' for cesium.

A Solar Calculator, a Game Ball, and a Cheerleader's Bosom - S1-E5

Factual error: The commentary suggests that Sheldon had the correct solution to problem 1 and merely lost points on the quiz because he didn't show his work. In reality he did the first problem incorrectly. Taking the derivative of (x+2) ^2+ (y+1) ^2 = 13 with respect to x yields: 2* (x+2) +2* (y+1) * (dy/dx) = 0 which implies that: dy/dx = - (x+2) / (y+1) and at the point (0,2) this means that the slope dy/dx is actually equal to - (2/3), not 2/3. It is correct that when using the form y=mx+b at the point 0,2 reveals that 2=m*0+b, or that b=2. So the correct equation for the tangent line is y = - (2/3) x + 2, not y = (2/3) x + 2 as shown in the episode. (00:13:55)

A Therapist, a Comic Book, and a Breakfast Sausage - S1-E4

Question: Did Mary really think that telling Georgie Jr. Sheldon was getting a haircut would work when they got back and he noticed Sheldon's hair was exactly the same?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It is shown numerous time in The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon that Georgir Jr is not the smartest kid going. They simply tell him Sheldon is getting a hair cut as it is believable. It's also shown that Sheldon has had the same style hair cut since he was 5. Since he is 9 in Young Sheldon, he's had the same style for over 4 years already. Easy to overlook that he hadn't actually had it cut after that long.

Jiu-Jitsu, Bubble Wrap, and Yoo-Hoo - S1-E17

Question: Why does the girl who keeps going after Sheldon go after him at all? She looks at him like she just hates his guts and would love to kill him, but why? I know that bullies go after the weaker people but she seems to act like Sheldon ruined her life or something.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Some people just have a dislike for someone that can't be explained. Could be as simple as the way he's dressed.

A Computer, a Plastic Pony, and a Case of Beer - S1-E12

Question: Why does Mary grab her kids and leave just because George bought beer? I know they were fighting a little about money the night before but George used his own money, so what does it matter?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Mary is highly religious and completely against any form of alcohol as shown in Big Bang Theory numerous times.
