As a child who was born in late 1970s, the Wonder Years was a show I watched every single week with my family. I have such great memories of all of us watching and talking about Kevin and Winnie. Now the Wonder Years reboot is back so the newer generations can watch. This is one show I plan to watch with my kids and have discussions about. It is not only a great sitcom but one that inspires in so much including bringing up life lessons about race and diversity. It is not only a show that I want my kids to watch, it is one that I need my kids to watch.
Inspired by the beloved award-winning series of the same name, “The Wonder Years” is a new original coming-of-age comedy that tells the story of the Williams family during the late 1960s, all through the point of view of imaginative 12-year-old Dean. With the wisdom of his adult years, Dean’s hopeful and humorous recollections of his past spotlight the ups and downs of growing up in a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama, and the friendship, laughter and lessons along the way.
