Hello all. First off, I did a search for Wonder Years threads and came up with nothing. However, I do not trust the ATS search so if there threads
already started, apologies.
The last couple of months I have been re-watching The Wonder Years on Netflix. I remember loving the show when it aired in the 90's. Though it took
place in the late 60's-early 70's, I was about the same age as Fred Savage (Kevin) on the show and I was going through a lot of the things his
character was going through. I could relate.
The Wonder Years
Now that I'm in my thirties with a family of my own (ironically 3 kids, oldest a girl, and two boys), I've gained a whole new appreciation for this
show. I truly believe it is some of the best television ever made. Sure, there are some stinkers, but as a whole this series touches so many life
experiences that all of us have gone through at one point or another growing up. The purpose of this thread is to discuss the show. Do you love it? Do
you hate it? What are some of your favorite episodes/moments in the series? Least favorite?
These are my favorites so far. I've just started the fifth season and will add more to this thread.
The Pilot (1st) - Although there are 6 seasons, the pilot is still up there as my favorite. Everything about it is perfect. The closing scene where
Kevin & Winnie kiss is great
My Father's Office (1st) - Great episode where Kevin and Jack have a great talk and Kevin has a new understanding of his father.
Whose Woods Are These? (2nd) - One of the best closing scenes in the series. Really makes me look back at my childhood friends and the great times we
Goodbye (3rd) - We've all know teachers like Mr. Collins. Gut wrenching episode.
Daddy's Little Girl (3rd) - Now that I have a daughter, I need Kleenex for this episode.
The Cost Of Living (4th) - Great episode with Kevin and Jack. Love the ending.
Heartbreak (4th) - The scene when Winnie breaks up with Kevin and the Beach Boys "God Only Knows" playing in the background. Perfect.
Denial (4th) - The party scene where Kevin sees Winnie with another guy. Stylistics "You Are Everything" in background. Great scene at the end when
Jack hugs a crying Kevin.
The Accident (4th) - Scene at end where Kevin says "I Love You" through the window to Winnie.
So ATS, what say you?
