Hello

Just a quick heads-up that ITV3 in the UK should (according to current schedules) be showing the 'Eclipse' episode of The Wonder Years on 28th October at both 09:00 and 19:25

Could be interesting!

I love this topic! I was also a huge Wonder Years fan and have searched for it on DVD. I had heard that Winnie H. had written an episode, not surprised, that woman is a complete genius! Wouldn't it be great to just have lunch with her?!

It could be a coincidence that we love MSCL and the Wonder Years, but I like to think MSCL fans just know what's up!

i love the wonder years too--i couldn't wait to watch it since it premiered back in 89. i remember crying at the very last episode--that song they used when kevin talked about what happened to each person later on in life, esp. his father. what did the show go up to--1974?

I absolutely loved The Wonder Years when I was a kid! Currently there are re-runs on TV so, of course, I watch :D & today they aired "The Eclipse". I had no idea Devon Odessa & AJ Langer were starring in it at all. I actually ended up exclaiming very excitedly (& rather loudly ;)) "Sharon!! Rayanne!!" when they appeared on screen.

If anyone is interested in watching, I've found the clip on youtube. Enjoy! :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8R3qodYtPQ (skip to 3:16 if you don't feel like watching the whole thing)

I saw the first two episodes and it's really good, the script and the voice over are truly great.

It's not comedy, maybe a soft comedy and on the paper is not so different from MSCL. I don't understand why the people accepted so easily this series for six years and they don't gives one chance to "My So Called Life" :evil:

Is very comfortable heard on the background W.G Snuffy Walden. I love him.

I finished the first season(big deal, only six episodes xD) and i'm very impressed by the quality of the show.
It's not edgy and adult like MSCL but is honest and real like "My So Called Life" and that's good enough for me.
Thanks god there are other 100 episodes left. I consider the ABC the best quality network ever for family-drama.
I still disegree about the "comedy" definition, it's not a comedy, the Vietnam conflict-argument from episode 1x04 it's hard to find even in a serious drama.

I am at the beginning of season 3. I'm still impressed by the quality of the show! Honest,real and full of heart and most important very balanced. We passed by a soft comedy episode at one political..and again at one more romantic and simple....all without denaturalize the show! And again, there is room for improvements now that Kevin has reached the teenage years. Season 3 and 4 have a great potential just because of that particular age that will reminds inevitably the atmosfere of My So Called Life. -

My favourite episode of season 2 is "Square Dance" it's a very simple episode but very powerful and sensitive! The dynamic between Kevin and Margaret echos Angela and Brian, that's always a good things. -
I appreciated the fact also that the main characters are are very flawed and unperfect, Kevin in first line but also Winnie for example...one minute you loved them and one minute you hate them...just like real life.
