Young Sheldon Season 5


Sheldon reveals how he became the 'king of sardines'. Georgie is attracted to an older woman and lies to get into her pants while George Sr tries to eat his feelings for Brenda.


After a rather slightly boring episode, the 11th episode, titled 'A Lock-In, a Weather Girl and a Disgusting Habit' tries to make up for it. The new episode of Young Sheldon Season 5 has a few fun elements which will help you get through its entire runtime. 

The episode is written quite well and has some witty dialogues. Georgie flirts with an older woman Mandy, a former weather girl on TV, who recently moves into the town. 

This episode has very little of Connie, which is kind of a drawback. She's one of the popular characters on the show and probably, the only fun character too. She catches Georgie red-handed, having dinner with Mandy but leaves the two alone after her signature sarcasm. 

It has some fun and unexpected moments though, which keep you at the edge of your seats. While Mary seems struggling around the idea to supervise the kids during a lock-in at the church alone with the young pastor Rob, George is seen struggling too with his night alone at home, so much so that he offers Connie some company at her house during a blackout.

It is cute to see George trying to control his emotions for Brenda. He tries to call her up but decides to then hang out with his friend Tom at another bar. But runs into Brenda there where she strikes off with Tom. The two realise how they picked different bars for the night

Missy might be smarter than you think. She convinces Sheldon to hide until he is found so that he does not reveal what's actually happening with everyone at the night out. Sheldon takes her word literally and to prove that he is really good at hiding, he volunteers for the game of sardines. The last voice-over by Jim Parsons, the older Sheldon Cooper, gives you a few chuckles as the episode fades to black.  


The episode adds a few fun elements to the otherwise dragging story of the prequel to The Big Bang Theory.
