Of all the tv serials I've watched in my short lifetime, this one has to be the one that has managed to touch the very core of my soul. Although I lived in a totally different part of the world, I used to watch in admiration this deceptively calm and quiet story of an explosive period in American history playing out through the eyes of a middle class teenage boy.
It traced the life of this boy for six years through six seasons. Fred Savage as Kevin was a wonder to behold. Although I am anything but American I used to identify with Kevin and held a deep understanding of the characters problems and dilemmas. When the tv series finally came to a halt, it was as if I lost a part of me. Truly a work of art. One word: Brilliant!
