Any fans of this tv show? It ended in the 1990's.
For our members from lands unheard of, the show was about Kevin Arnold, an average kid and his story of growing up in middle America during the turbulent 1960's.
The show goes through his life from about Junior High School until after High School Graduation. Along the way he meets his love of his life (Winnie Cooper), deals with a tough dad, an even tougher older brother, and a hippie sister.
The show was just amazing, even though he lives through history making events, the things that have the most impact on his life are his best friend (Paul Pfifer-NOT Marilyn Manson), Winnie Cooper, and his family.
The very last show was the best in telivision history.
At the very end:
"Winnie went to go study art in Paris, and when she came home I met her at the airport...with my wife and son"

I absolutely love "The Wonder Years", as do many friends of mine. Very well written, acted, etc, and the era it is set in is not that far away from my own. I could relate to the timeframe very well. This show brought back a lot of memories for me, especially the
"best friendship" between Kevin and his pal.

I still have that last episode on tape somewhere ... I remember the last scene, with that voiceover, was looking down their road at twilight, with a car driving off into the distance (taking Winnie away? - can't remember that bit).
I was a heck of a lot younger then, and thought at the time that Becky Slater was just THE cutest thing on TV. The actress who played Becky (Crystal McKellar) and the actress who played Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) are sisters in real life. Crystal gave up acting after that series, and is apparently now a law student at Harvard (according to Internet Movie Database). Danica has just recently begun serious acting again after spending most of the nineties as a student.

I love the show...I used to watch it all the time with my dad when I was younger...its on some channel here I think like around 1pm..which makes it tough to catch...best thing about the show is that Kevin was a Jets fan!
