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. For six years America tuned in to follow the exploits of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage), as he navigated adolescence in the most memorable of ways.
Moderated by acclaimed columnist and NPR “Fresh Air” critic David Bianculli, Fred Savage, Danica McKellar (girl-next-door Winnie Cooper) and Josh Saviano (Kevin’s BFF Paul Pfeiffer) discuss growing up on camera—crushes, first kisses, and all the other indignities that come from going from tween to teen in front of America.
