We always look forward to stories on The Big Bang Theory that involves Sheldon Cooper’s mother, Mary, since it means we get to see more of the excellent Laurie Metcalf. She’s so good on the show, she even got an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Guest Actress category last year. (It was one of three nominations she received last year, and she’s already got three Emmys on her shelf!) This season, though, her appearances on The Big Bang Theory are even more interesting, since Mary Cooper is a regular character on the Young Sheldon spinoff, where she’s played by Metcalf’s own “spinoff” — her daughter, Zoe Perry.
