The Wonder Years: The Complete Series

WonderYears

Main Plot Points:

  • Before there was Modern Family, That ’70s Show or Freaks and Geeks, there was The Wonder Years — a nostalgia-inducing take on the traditional family sitcom — and one of the most beloved sitcoms of the past thirty years.
  • Debuting in 1988 following ABC’s broadcast of Super Bowl XXII, the affectionate look at growing up in the late ’60s and early ’70s in suburban America was unlike anything else on television. And, for the next six seasons, America tuned in to follow the exploits of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage), as he navigated adolescence in the most memorable of ways.
  • Never before released on DVD in its entirety,THE WONDER YEARS COMPLETE SERIES is presented as a 26-disc collector’s set featuring all 115 episodes housed in a replica metal locker, along with a host of extras including 23 hours of specially-produced bonus programming — featurettes, an incredible cast reunion 16 years in the making and never-before-seen outtakes, including all six takes of Kevin and Winnie’s first kiss from the pilot episode.
  • THE WONDER YEARS COMPLETE SERIES is available exclusively online at TimeLife.com/WonderYears for $249.95.

What We Thought:

  • One of the most beloved shows of the 80s/90s, The Wonder Years FINALLY makes its way to DVD, and this isn’t just some thrown-together release.
  • This limited edition set of the entire series — available only through StarVista online — includes 26 discs that comprise the entire series in its entirety.
  • One of the best things about this release is that the distributor went through and secured the rights to ALL of the music in the set, so the show’s indelible soundtrack is intact.
  • And with that, the entire show holds up extremely well. The cast is terrific, the characters are endearing, and the show is sweet and fun, just like it always was.
  • And even better, this set is LOADED with extra features. Not only does it come in an awesome metal locker case, but there are hours upon hour of newly crafted extra features. This really is a treasure trove for fans of the show.
  • What better time is there to welcome Kevin Arnold and Winnie Cooper back into your home?
