Although the charceters were a few years over, this is exactly what I went through growing up.
Thats what made it great, I could relate perfectly, to almost every situation the show presented. The best thing was Kevins realationship with Winnie, I and most other guys went through the same thing. The longing for the object of your desire, the pure joy when you win her heart, and the unbearable agony when you lose her.
The resolution of their story at the end of the series, was perfect. Thats what should have happened. After all, very few of us marry our childhood sweetheart!
Very little else I want to say, the charcters were all on target. The best episode of course, was the one where the teacher died. A very well deserved Emmy indeed. A lot of folks were upset that the Father died at the end of the series. But that was good, because life does throw you a curve. Thats reality.
I can only pray for a reunion someday. Syndication has bee a terriable disappointment.
