HOLLYWOOD – The least funny show on television The Big Bang Theory is to get a prequel Young Sheldon.
The Big Bang Theory has long been the favorite comedy of people who don’t have a sense of humor. Sheldon Cooper and his friends Leonard and Howard, Rajand Potzy hang around a studio set and crack wise. The blond girl Penny lives across the hall. In a radically subversive twist, she’s stupid. There’s a will they or won’t they about it. And someone wants to have sex with Penny.
Chuck Lorre and Steve Molaro who produced the original show will probably spread similar disease with the spin off. Adding to the insufferable smugness of the original is the prospect of a 9 year old Sheldon, played by Iain Armitage. A source close to the show said:
It’s going to be really exciting. Sheldon’s annoying but now he’s going to be a child as well. In the first season we’re going to discover how Sheldon got into comic books. Then we’re going to see his fundamentalist mother refuse to get him the correct psychiatric treatment and instead use the power of prayer.
CBS have admitted that there is a long range possibility that the Earth might be consumed by a nuclear war scenario and humanity devastated to such an extent that production would have to be suspended. But the bad news is that looks unlikely.
