I never was a big fan of Big Bang theory show, I thought it perpetuates the same stereotypes about smart and geeky persons. But for me, this show is great. It has that human touch that Big Bang doesn't have. It has a certain familiar feeling and the humor is better.

It is so rare these days to find a wholesome, good quality show but look no more! This show offers great writing, acting and humor. Can be enjoyed by anyone - familiarity with The Big Bang Theory show is not necessary - this show stands alone as a wonderful show.
I use TBBT and now YS before bedtime. It's instant fun, very fast paced, I like the humor used in both TBBT and YS. There are close to no flaws in this TV show. I'm not entirely sure about bad reviews. According to what people wrote and expected, it seems to me like the lot most likely misguided themselves and expected another Dr. House, Breaking Bad, Prison Break, The Lost, Game of Thrones or something. No, You're wrong there. This is a TBBT prequel, none of the above ;)
I don't understand why the naysayers are trying to link this show with TBBT. Who cares that the producers are labeling it as a spinoff to TBBT. Each member of the family is uniquely different. Their interactions with each other is what makes this show work to a T!All of you bible thumpers need to get a life. If you can't stand the heat (cussing) get out of the kitchen (quit watching the show and keep your opinions to yourselves).
