Young Sheldon Review: Sheldon Tries To Make Friends

Young Sheldon

Having seen how grown up Sheldon Cooper made friends, it’s daunting to see how Young Sheldon went about the process. After all, he wasn’t even four feet tall in high school. As always, it was his mother Mary Cooper’s job to push this process. Even if he didn’t make friends in high school, she knew there would come a time when he could need them. It took a few decades for Sheldon to find lasting friends as an adult. However, he did find some success when he was a boy. It just took some creativity.

He has friends, just not the usual ones. He has his mother, and he has the school librarian. For those who wouldn’t consider Mary one of Sheldon’s friends, the school librarian is actually quite a good one for someone of Sheldon’s intelligence to have. However, Mary would prefer that Sheldon had friends his own age. The school librarian tries to help by giving him “How To Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. The thinking is that even someone as unique as Sheldon could make friends using a best-selling self-help book. Aside from his childhood bully Billy Sparks, who only cares that Sheldon shows him a smidgen of respect (or what he thinks is respect), Sheldon doesn’t find anyone to be his friend. At the very least, that book has kept him from being beat up.

Sheldon’s sister Missy attempts to help, by telling Sheldon he can make friends with the other people who rented the book. Then he meets the one person who would actually qualify. Tam is a Vietnamese immigrant who also likes rockets. That’s good enough for Sheldon. Tam relays his entire, tragic life story to the Cooper family during dinner. Because Sheldon has no filter, he outright says Tam’s story is depressing. At least Tam likes rockets of all types. This friendship could be problematic if Tam doesn’t counter some of Sheldon’s impulsive tendencies. Case in point, Tam could have pointed out to Sheldon that trying to order Uranium probably wasn’t a good idea. Unfortunately, we don’t think that this will be the last time that the FBI knocks on the Cooper’s door.

Who thinks that Tam will be sticking around? Will Sheldon make any more friends in high school?
