Young Sheldon is a spin-off from the hit show The Big Bang Theory.
Young Sheldon explains where the ‘true’ Sheldon Cooper- world-renown scientist and playboy- set his roots.
Nine-year-old Sheldon is attending high school. His mother, a caring, somewhat protective, caretaker and his father, the school’s football coach, continue to assist in smoothing the path ahead for Sheldon as he finds ways to make friends and interact in a world not-at-al as he actually envisions.
Sheldon (Iain Armitage) is FANTASTIC! While Sheldon is more than intellectually brilliant in the world of sciences, Sheldon has virtually no understanding of the world of human interactions. Even his basic understanding of human interaction is usually flawed.
One saving grace for Sheldon … He is confident in his mother’s love! (Zoe Perry plays Sheldon’s mother.)
Sheldon’s father (played by Lance Barber) has little understanding of what makes Sheldon tick, but he is always in Sheldon’s corner. Often my Mr. Cooper’s personal reflections he allows himself to share with Sheldon, Sheldon grasps very basic understandings of the world of human relationships.
George “Georgie” Cooper, Jr., Sheldon’s older brother (played by Montana Jordan), constantly harasses Sheldon. Georgie is ‘not too bright’ academically. But eth lovable thing about Georgie- what you see is what you get. He wears his life on his shirt-sleeve.
Missy Cooper, Sheldon’s twin sister, is not academically intelligent, but she has a grand understanding of basic human relationships. When she is not teasing Sheldon, she often provides Sheldon with the necessary insights to allow him success in navigating the world around him.
An ‘unidentified’ man is thrown into the waters just before a yacht blows up. He is adrift until a fishing boat rescues him. The ‘unidentified’ man claims to have amnesia from his head injuries.
This man is sent to shore by the heroic fishermen and is nursed back to health by a local ‘drunkard’ doctor. The doctor tries to assist him in finding his ‘lost’ self.
Through a series of flashbacks and mental images (and an imbedded microchip) the unidentified man comes to the knowledge that in his former life he access to 7.5 million Swiss francs, he has a connection to an agency called Treadstone, and his name is Jason Charles Bourne.
As you already know (unless you have been marooned on an island for the last twenty years), Bourne finds out that he is an assassin of sorts.
From here on out, the novel and the movie have nothing in common!!!
Complaint: In the novel, I came to love the Bourne’s ‘girlfriend/ wife. She is a strong, passionate, opinionated woman who knows how to look after herself.
In the movie, this ‘same’ character is suddenly a teenybopper, crashing from shore to shire, trying to find herself. I think that they were trying to portray ‘the woman’ he had lost to the evil villains before the storyline actually began- but it was not welcome in my world!!
Once I realized that The Bourne Identity (Movie) had nothing whatsoever to do with The Bourne Identity (Novel).
