    PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

    The Wonder Years debuted in 1988 following ABC's broadcast of Super Bowl XXII, and, for six memorable seasons, the series affectionately captured the angst of growing up in suburban middle-class America in the late '60s, as seen through the life and times of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage). It was unlike anything on television and audiences eagerly followed his evolution as a typical awkward teenager who remembered every moment of his transition from childhood with excruciating detail and remarkable hindsight. From his first kiss with Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) to his friendship with Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano) and the ups and downs of the Arnold family, fans shared in laughter, love, and loss, but above all, wonder.

    From 1988 to 1993, The Wonder Years was one of the most popular shows on TV, achieving a spot in the Nielsen Top 30 for four of its six seasons. And the critical accolades and awards would follow: after only a scant six episodes, the show captured an Emmy® for "Best Comedy Series;" and, at the age of 13, Fred Savage would become the youngest actor ever nominated as "Outstanding Lead Actor for a Comedy Series." The series would also go on to win 24 awards (and be nominated for 70 more), including multiple Emmy® Awards, a Golden Globe® and, in 1989, a Peabody® Award for pushing the boundaries of the sitcom format and using new modes of storytelling.

    Now, as the groundbreaking series commemorates its milestone 30th Anniversary, there's never been a better time to add one of the "Top 20 Shows of the '80s[1]" to your home entertainment collection, with two specially-priced retail editions.

    Both sets contain all 115 compete episodes from the series six year run -- remastered and engineered for optimal viewing -- along with complete show notes with episode synopses, cast member reflections, "Current Events," and more, as well as the soundtrack of over 300 classic period songs as they were featured in the original broadcasts includes such artists as: Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, The Byrds, Simon & Garfunkel, Aretha Franklin, James Taylor, and of course, Joe Cocker's unforgettable theme.

    THE WONDER YEARS: THE COMPLETE SERIES DELUXE EDITION is whimsically packaged in a limited edition metal locker, a replica of those used by Kevin and Winnie in Kennedy Junior High School - and arrives complete with colorful Wonder Years magnets to custom-design each locker. Also included are two "notebooks," each featuring detailed episode information and production photos, as well as a replica yearbook embellished with signatures from cast members, behind-the-scenes photos and classic show memorabilia, and liner notes penned by Fred Savage, series creators Neal Marlens and Carol Black and executive producer Bob Brush. For sitcom purists, THE SLIPCASE EDITION delivers all of the laughs and all of the memories in streamlined packaging.

    BONUS FEATURES
    Highlights from the cast reunion
    Roundtable discussions with Danica McKellar, Fred Savage, and Josh Saviano
    6 newly produced featurettes
    Farewell set tour
    One-hour ABC broadcast of the series finale

    Yeah, looks basically like a reissue to me. I'd bet that the transfers are all the same. I don't think Time Life has ever put anything out on Blu-ray. This was shot on Super 16mm but it might have been edited on video, so it'd probably be a lot of work to get it done in HD, which is a shame as it's a really nicely shot series that would probably really benefit from the increase in detail, etc.

    Are you sure it was Super 16 (not regular 16mm)? That's kind of weird that they would shoot in a widescreen format.

    That's what the IMDB says, but it could always be wrong.

    So, Savage looks old, other guy looks older, and Winnie is still hot.

    Check.
