Know what I am getting my husband for Valentines this year?  Season 4 of the Wonder Years!!! Yep. that is the plan. There is nothing that he needs and really nothing that he wants, but I know he enjoys the Wonder Years (he grew up watching it more devoted than I did!)  We have the other seasons, so I though this would be great to add to the collection!  What are you getting the love in your life?


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

For six Emmy Award®-winning seasons, The Wonder Years on ABC 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).  Audiences eagerly followed his evolution as a typical awkward teenager who remembered every moment of his transition from childhood with excruciating detail and remarkable hindsight. 
In Season 4, things are changing for Kevin as he enters his last year at Kennedy Junior High.  He should have it all figured out, but things don't go as smoothly as he had hoped: though he and Winnie (Danica McKellar) are in love and starting ninth grade - they're at different schools.  Arnold family life is changing, too, with Norma (Alley Mills) taking a new job at Kevin's school, Jack (Dan Lauria) getting a promotion, Wayne (Jason Hervey) buying a car and Karen (Oliva d'Abo) starting college. Kevin gets his first job caddying, is guilted into taking Paul's little sister to cotillion, and tries to crash a tenth-grader's slumber party (with beer).  He also finds Coach Cutlip (Robert Picardo) moonlighting as the mall Santa after subjecting the gym class to Death Ball and the President's All-American Physical Fitness Challenge.   But the biggest surprise might be from Paul (Josh Saviano), who announces that he'll be going to prep school in the fall.  It's a roller coaster ride, but the gang makes it to graduation and kisses Kennedy Junior High goodbye.
THE WONDER YEARS: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON contains all 23 poignant and nostalgia-inducing episodes from Season 4, in their original broadcast versions across 4 loaded discs.  And, alongside the specially-produced bonus features including in-depth interviews and a behind-the-scenes featurette, the collector's set includes over three dozen songs as they were featured in the original broadcast, with classics by Joan Baez, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Nat King Cole, Judy Collins, Lee Dorsey, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, The Monkees, Randy Newman, Smokey Robinson &; the Miracles, Sam &;; Dave, Bob Seger, Edwin Starr, The Ventures, The Who, Hank Williams, and many more, plus Joe Cocker's unforgettable rendition of The Beattle's With a Little Help from My Friends.

  2. My boys and I love this show. They never really ask about the romantic stuff. One conversation was funny. Mica thought going steady was going to study. We talked about that. I'm ok if things do come up. Mica's 10, and I imagine as time goes on he'll have questions. I'd rather he ask, and get answers from us, then to be confused, or go get information from someone at school. Right now he seems more interested in watching Minecraft videos online than learning about girls, or even playing with friends. He never asks for playdates. He's content just being at home.

  3. I just left a long comment, but I don't think it went through. Ugg!

    I love this show. My boys and I watch it. I'm glad it raises conversations with us. Most moms would cringe at that, but I think it's a great thing for kids to feel comfortable to talk to their parents about relationships and their bodies changing.
