Young Sheldon ruins yet another The Big Bang Theory story
A Young Sheldon fan may have just ruined another plot hole in The Big Bang Theory.
An eagle-eyed Reddit-user, who said that while they ‘didn’t want to diminish the excellent writing skills’ of both shows, they couldn’t help but notice a small detail about Sheldon Cooper’s trusty safety whistle.
The fan pointed out that in The Big Bang Theory, Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) claimed she gave Sheldon (Jim Parsons) his safety whistle that he keeps in his backpack.
However, season three episode 10 of Young Sheldon completely contradicted this as Young Sheldon, (Iain Armitage) showed that he had the whistle long before he met Amy.
‘I would like to say that I know this is a very small detail and I don’t want to diminish the excellent writing skills that made these two great TV shows. I just like finding these small inconsistencies,’ the Reddit-user commented.
Going into detail about The Big Bang Theory scene, they continued: ‘In TBBT, a scene has Sheldon showing the group his backpack with various things for safety in the bathroom including, a handheld mirror “to avoid pervs”, a multilingual poster that says “occupied” and a whistle which apparently Amy gave to him.’
‘This contradicts the Young Sheldon episode where Paige, Missy and Sheldon go to the mall and he shows them his backpack,’ the fan added.
‘He says it includes: “Earplugs to drown out the crowd noise, wet naps to wipe down escalator hand rails, a compass, a map of the mall and a whistle incase he gets lost or get approached by a woman holding a perfume bottle.
‘This shows that he had the whistle long before he ever met Amy.’
Questioning his theory, another fan commented: ‘Maybe it’s a different whistle. A new whistle that Amy gave him so now he carries that one instead of his old one.’
It comes after it was reported that production for the sitcom has been stopped after a member of staff tested positive for coronavirus.
The show has been shooting since September 22 and is currently in the midst of filming the third episode of the latest season.
It’s believed production will begin again early this week, possibly even today, so no real delay is expected nor should this affect the show’s release.
Young Sheldon airs on E4 in the UK.
