“The Big Bang Theory,” created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, was hailed for its quirky humor, ranging from hardcore fan culture references to zany astronomical theory. The show’s success — particularly the popularity of Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) — prompted the production of a prequel series, “Young Sheldon,” which follows Sheldon (here played by Iain Armitage) as a child prodigy in high school. “Young Sheldon” is now showing on CBS, and it includes answers to lingering puzzles from “The Big Bang Theory.”

Sheldon was a unique and frequently neurotic character, but his connection with Amy let fans glimpse a more sympathetic and down-to-earth side. Amy’s character was hinted at early on in the show.
