    The Wonder Years debuted in 1988, portraying the life of an average suburban American family in 1968. The show looked 20 years into our past. That was 32 years ago.

    Crikey I’m old

    the main character is still lovely and really funny. I know I’m a twat for it but he did a couple of shows as Michael Strahan’s stand in before Ryan Seacrest took over Kelly Ripa’a talk show and I fell for him a weeny bit

    The rumour that his best mate in the show was Marilyn Manson was funny.

    I hadn’t even thought about him since the moley mole thing in Austin Powers so it caught me by surprise.

    Really genuine and really funny.

    They were both so sweet!!

    I know it’s daft but when I first moved to the US Kelly and Ryan were like a comfort blanket. Whether I was doing other things and just had it on in the background it was always on.

    When he left I was gutted haha. Wonder Years guy as a possible new host would have been brilliant. But instead we have Ryan sodding Seacrest


    Edit I meant Kelly and Michael Strahan originally, I don’t like seacrest

    There was an urban legend that Paul, the nerd friend of Kevin, was played by Marilyn Manson.
    I had a massive crush on Winnie as well. She really developed nicely!
    The narrator of the wonder years was one of the wet bandits from home alone, David Stern.

    Winnie is like a rocket scientist in real life. Super smart.

    Brains to go with the beauty.

    Kevin Arnold had it pretty damn good. First he had Winnie. Then for his next show he had Tapanga as a girlfriend.

    Lucky bastard.

    Joe Cockers opening theme really seemed to hit the viewer with a heavy dose of nostalgia.

    I really like the idea that the former NBA commissioner was a voice actor before the NBA gig.
