The Wonder years

I love this show I used to watch it from when I was in 2nd grade. I just love Kevin, Winnie, Pal, Norma, etc. My favorite episode is the last one wher Kevin leaves because he says he wants to find himself and become lifeguard and he is wearing the shirt with a tomato.

When winnie gets injured ia car accident.

When Kevin meets a gir on summer vacation and fals in love with her and the next year he goesto te same place to find that she's a smoker.

Did/does anyone watch this show and wha did you think of it?

OMG, I used to love that show!

The last episode when they say what happened to everyone was so poignant.

The show was one of my favorites until Kevin went through puberty and became too awkward.

I liked the first episode the best since it established the characters and the uneasiness of the time when Winnie's brother died in Vietnam.

Yeah, great show. My favorite scene was the time Wayne grabbed Kevin's roll from his plate, licked the bottom of it, and put it back on Kevin's plate. Ahh, the love between brothers.

Cub fans, by consensus, are the best in baseball. Year after year, in good times and (mostly) bad, they turn out in vociferous numbers, sustaining themselves with a heavenly ichor that combines loyalty, criticism, cheerfulness, durability, rage, beer and hope, in exquisite proportions.

I loved that show~~

Kevin & Winnie were soo cute when they were small,.. but they did lost some cuteness as they were getting old.

Anyway,.. it was one of my favorate & decent show around 15 (or more) years ago.
In my country,.. the show's title was "Kevin is 12 years old",... and they just aired the show only 3 year,... so I have no idea about the last episode,... actually didn't know that they made the series having Kevin being an adult.
It was nice to watch some early episode last year when I visited some south-east Asian countries. I think they still broadcast early series according to their program guide.

BTW,... is there anyone who knows the title of a TV show about the little twin girl & boy? (Jody & Buffy, as I remember) They had butler looked like Pavarotti (a famous Tenor) and they were sooooo cute.
If you know,... please enlighten me about the show.
Thanks in advance.

Eric _tennis I know what show you're talking about the Guy's name was Mr. French and Uncle Bill and they had an older cousin or sister. I remember one time they hired Mr. French to do a poupon commercial. Anyway I thnk the title is somethin to do with heaven, paradise, perfect some word like that but I last remember seeing it on the U.S network FX.

Wayne took over for his father at the furniture store or whatever it was that his father was doing.

I believe the name of the show that you guys are looking for is "Family Affair". My mom watched it every damn day when FX first started. The only one of the main characters who is still alive is the boy. Buffy overdosed on drugs, Uncle Bill killed himself, and I don't know what happened to Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot) but I am sure that he too is dead.

I used to watch that show after school!

Also, about a month ago I was in Wal-Mart with my family. We had already paid for all our items and were on our way out. I turned around to leave and right in front of me was the man who played Kevin's older brother! I was like whispering..."Dad! Dad! It's the Wonder Year's guy!" He hasn't changed in looks at all...just gotten older. Supposedly he has been living here in my town for a while and doing the business thing according to my dad. Just thought I would share that.

OMG,... it's terrible. Maybe I just should have kept the show in my memory... I didn't even imagine that kind of terrible thing would happen to them! Feel so sorry for the Buffy girl and uncle Bill.

Anyway,.. thanks for the reply, Steam & selesfan1.
