THIS FALL, FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN WITH ONE OF THE MOST EAGERLY-ANTICIPATED TV DVD RELEASES OF THE YEAR AND ITS VERY FIRST RETAIL RELEASE FROM STARVISTA ENTERTAINMENT/TIME LIFE!
The Wonder Years captured the angst of growing up in suburban middle-class America in the late ‘60s as seen through the life and times of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage).
In Season 1, Kevin experiences the ups and downs of young love, his school’s well-intentioned, though comedic, attempts at classroom sex education, and the incredible social pressures behind an innocent junior high dance. The peace-love movement hits close to home when Kevin’s sister Karen (Olivia d’Abo) falls for a college-aged, VW bus-driving hippie (future star John Corbett), as does the dark reality of the Vietnam War when his cool neighbor Brian Cooper is killed in action. Kevin gets by with a little help from his friends Winnie (Danica McKellar) and the hyper-allergic Paul (Josh Saviano). Two hours of bonus material, including highlights from the 2014 cast reunion, make Season 1 even more wonderful.
with Fred Savage (Kevin Arnold) and Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper) and Much More!
Kevin Arnold and best friend Paul Pfeiffer are saying goodbye to their last summer as boys and preparing to enter Robert F. Kennedy Junior High School. Kevin and Winnie share their first kiss as Winnie mourns the loss of her brother, Brian, a soldier just killed in the Vietnam War.
At Brian’s funeral, all Kevin can think about is Winnie and their first kiss; meanwhile, sex education begins at school, but Kevin and Paul get the feeling that their teacher isn’t telling them everything they need to know.
My Father’s Office
After Kevin asks his dad about what he does at work, Jack brings his son to his office at NORCOM and shows him around. Kevin gets a glimpse into his father’s life after spending the day with him, and in the end, he realizes that his father is a great man.
Kevin’s older sister, Karen, doesn’t communicate with her parents anymore, and it’s all because of her new boyfriend, Louis. Kevin takes an immediate dislike to Louis, and finds out that he is cheating on Karen. Things are only made worse when Louis comes to dinner.
The Phone Call
Kevin tries to get up the courage to call Lisa Berlini, while Paul consults the junior high grapevine to find out if Lisa likes Kevin.
Dance With Me
Kevin is madly infatuated with Lisa Berlini and asks her to the school dance, but things change quickly after Lisa accepts a date with another guy.
