I had a backflash into my teenage-times this morning. My favorite TV-series from my teen/twen times is now available on DVD. No doubt, I will have it soon. I NEED to have it.
I m talking about “The Wonder Years”. This TV series about normal kids…normal families…normal problems for families in the 60-tees in the US. I love this series, cause it was so similar to the problems I faced when I was at the age of Kevin Arnold.
And yes, I have to admit that I had a crush on Winnie Cooper…the most adorable girl in the world. She was so cute! Her long dark hair…and that smile that could melt icebergs.
Ok, in real life her name is Danica McCellar and she´s teaching math (!) today. This is crazy and adorable the same time 🙂
In a way, I always thought about that she would be a perfect match to be my first gf. Ok, reality didn’t gave me that opportunity…but it’s ok.
And there was the music. Esp. one song…”With a little help from my friends” by Joe Cooker … this song will be related for ever with this show. I think there was and is till today no other title-track that is so intense, so powerfull, so wonderfull matching what the focus of a TV-Show then this one.
Still drives tears to my eyes when I watch the final sceen of the final episode. No other TV-Series was ever that close related to a chapter in my life then “The Wonder Years”.
So all that’s left for me is to get the DVD box and warp me back years ago when a tiny teen watched a series about two teens growing up. (Anyway @Danica: If you ever should come to Germany I d be delited to invite you to a cup of coffee or two if I get a talk with you about the series in exchange 😉 )
