Young Sheldon Season 7 Episode 1- ‘A Wiener Schnitzel and Underwear in a Tree’ review

Young Sheldon premiered on CBS on February 15, 2024, setting the right note for the upcoming Valentine weekend. Our only complaint? Waiting another week for another glimpse of the Coopers.

Young Sheldon Season 7 is finally here, with the Indian audience getting to view the first episode a day later, on February 16 on Prime Video, after airing on CBS the previous day. It's still better late than never, as the final season of the beloved CBS prequel deserves to be savoured. Titled A Wiener Schnitzel and Underwear in a Tree, the first episode is as quirky and fun as can be expected, with some promising character growth.

Missy Steps Up and becomes the mom of the house in Episode 1, Season 7, of Young Sheldon

The most significant character evolution that begins is that of Missy’s. With Mary gone to Germany, Missy steps up and takes over as the maternal head of the family, just like her mom, despite her vehement denial. Gone is the rebellious, angry teen of the last few seasons of Young Sheldon. Missy Cooper has kept true to the promise she made to her father, George, about turning over a new leaf.

When George unwittingly reveals how sorely unprepared he is to take care of the family like Mary used to, not knowing if they have new sheets or a linen closet, Missy takes charge, and the Cooper family home sails smoothly and safely under her sharp and careful eye.

Meemaw and Pastor Jeff both feel lost for different reasons, but salvation lies at Cooper's residence, sort of

Meemaw, who had moved in with Dale after the perilous decimation of her house by the tornado last season, hits a rough patch with the latter when he makes an insensitive joke about her poor insurance choice, as it did not cover tornadoes despite residing in Texas. As a result, a pissed Meemaw moves back into the Cooper house and puts on a brave front, despite battling sad and embittered feelings.


Pastor Jeff and his wife come across some of Meemaw’s cash and decide to use it instead to buy a brand-new Trinitron 27-inch TV that runs like a dream and gives a futuristic cinematic feeling to viewers in the ‘80s and ‘90s. However, Pastor Jeff’s already-troubled conscience hits a nadir when he comes face-to-face with George while discarding the TV’s carton. Unable to bear it, he ends up giving the TV to the Coopers without offering any explanation and running off.

Mary and Sheldon’s first night in Germany and their Palaeolithic 'sympathetic vomiting'

While Sheldon is enjoying his pretzel in Germany, finally at home in the land of rules and poker-faced humour, his mother Mary is obsessing about everyone back home and is determined to go back and help. As if Sheldon would let his mother do that when class begins the next day.

However, his mother ends up embarrassing him in front of his new programme batchmates by drunkenly singing and publicly hugging him before ending up puking her guts out in the washroom. The memorable episode ends with Sheldon joining his mother in an instance of “sympathetic vomiting” while citing another fun Palaeolithic fact. Indian viewers can catch the second episode of A Roulette Wheel and A Piano Playing Dog next Friday on Prime Video.
