    This is my first time writing a review for The Wonder Years. I recently discovered that The Hub airs repeats of it at 9 PM, so expect more of them from moi.



    The episode was not funny, not funny at all, I did not laugh once, but this is a good family story about life during a simpler time. This is pretty much what Modern Family tries to do, although they spread out the camera time a little more than this show did.



    The Wonder Years became a cult favorite for a good reason: it is simple viewing about a simple time.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The album that Winnie gives Kevin is an actual album that Bread released in 1972.

    • After Charlie chickens out of the deal, Jack tells Norma that the bank (actually a savings and loan) would not give him a loan on his own because "you know how conservative those banks are". Ironically, 10 years later, those same savings and loans made hundreds of billions of dollars in bad loans to companies that were either fraudulent or terrible risks.

    • At the beginning of the episode, Norma is graduating from Freemont Community College, but the narrator says she is graduating from "state college".

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Narrator: December, nineteen-seventy-two, was a time of change for my family. A time of strange occurrences. Improbable events. And, a fews surprises. After a twenty-year sabbatical in the kitchen... my mother was graduating from State College. We were all pretty proud of her. As for my father... after a half a lifetime at NORCOM... he decided to invest in the future. Well, the future of furniture, anyway.

    • Narrator: I guess some gifts are simple. They come from the heart... with a lifetime guarantee. And that afternoon... Christmas finally arrived. That Christmas Eve, I delivered egg rolls and pork lomein - for fifty cents more an hour. Then I turned right around and squandered the profits - on cashmere. Still, I think it was worth it. As for that big box, it turned out to be something much, much smaller. (Winnie gives Kevin a present) I hated it. I loathed it. I despised it. Then again, on the other hand... That night we skipped the customary dinner at home. Seemed there was a more fitting place to gather. We stayed up late. We talked about old times, new times. We ate turkey and dressing... and egg rolls. After all, the way I saw it, that year, we had a lot to celebrate.
