Young Sheldon - A Race of Superhumans and a Letter to Alf - Review: Homo Novis




Sheldon wants to create a race of superhumans. What else is new?

When Missy needs help with her math homework Sheldon realizes that, as a teacher, you can have quite some power over your students. He believes that if he could teach someone as dull as his sister how fractions work, he can teach her anything else as well. Sheldon has this vision to make her to some kind of super-human. She would be the prototype for his new species, the "homo novis". When he conducts some further research on the topic he comes across Socrates’s statement that humans already possess all the knowledge, it just needs to be activated. He is confident that he will find a way to activate Missy’s knowledge. He uses a new method to condition his sister: reward and punishment. Very dog-like. When Missy does not want to cooperate and study with him, Sheldon goes ahead and cuts a strand of hair from Missy‘s favorite doll. That is her punishment. However, this does not motivate Missy one bit to study with Sheldon. Instead, she hits him in the face.

While Sheldon is trying to create homo novis, Georgie has decided to become a Christian. Not because he has found God, it is because he found Veronica. Remember the girl he went on a date with in the Halloween episode? She comes by the Cooper‘s house to join Mary‘s bible study group. There really is no other way for Georgie than to participate as well and to pretend to be a devout Christian. The only way to get close to Veronica apparently is through god.

Georgie keeps up the charade for days. He even decides to get baptized together with Veronica. When the girl gets "bathed“ in holy water Georgie’s brain shuts down. He kisses her. In church. During their baptism. In front of 80 conservative, Christian people. Veronica responds by hitting him in the face.

Lot’s of punches were thrown in this episode. How did you like the storylines? Let us know!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
