It’s almost time for a second emotional goodbye to one of comedy’s best characters: Sheldon Cooper. 

Fans fell in love with the character of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory, which ran for 12 years and starred Jim Parsons. In the spinoff prequel Young Sheldon, Parsons passed down the torch to Iain Armitage. However, Parsons still narrates the series as adult Sheldon and executive produces. 

Young Sheldon allows audiences to travel back to Sheldon’s childhood in East Texas, truly giving us the opportunity to meet his family in a way that we hadn’t with their appearances on The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon wouldn’t be who he is without Mary (Zoe Perry), George Sr. (Lance Barber), Missy (Raegan Revord), Georgie (Montana Jordan), and his Meemaw (Annie Potts). 

Let’s be honest, the show is just as fun as The Big Bang Theory was, albeit in a different way and with a different focus: family. So picking the top 15 episodes was no easy task, but here’s which ones we think are the real standouts.
