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!

Season One 3D Cover
THE WONDER YEARS: SEASON ONE

 

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.

I think the Wonder Years was one of the best shows on TV!  The accurate portrayal of life in the late 60’s and 70’s is so real and tugged at our heartstrings.  After 6 seasons, we felt that we had grown right up along side Kevin, Winnie, Paul and even pain in the butt brother Wayne.  We laughed with them, we cried with them and we felt good watching them as we could relate to the coming of age experiences they faced every episode.  From the great music to the unforgettable fashion The Wonder Years is a timeless classic.  Season 1 is on DVD along with the other seasons of this fantastic show.

    I like the Ed Sullivan show collection. I remember licking it a lot when I was little and have seen a couple episodes as an adult and laughed. I’d love to watch some now as an adult.

  3. Another StarVista product that I like is the The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts: Complete DVD Collection.
