This teenage sitcom is named after its main character, likable but sissy schoolgirl Blossom Russo. It centers around her life at school and at home, where she lives with her single father, charming musician Nick Russo, who tries hard to be an exemplary parent, and her two elder brothers, the cool Anthony, the eldest, and sweet but rather weak and naive Joey. Her best friend, Six LeMeure, who is educationally neglected at her home and thus is almost always around at the Russos as well as at school, is the voice of mischief and thus often her partner in crime.

Though the original concept of the show was for Blossom to have a hip, single musician dad the executives insisted she have two parents in the pilot. After a great deal of fighting with show producers the network caved and the show went back to the original idea, casting Ted Wass as Blossom's single musician dad. See more »
Nietzsche once asked, "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" And do you know where he is now? He's in the woods pondering his question.
So does it?
All I know is that if a tree falls in the woods, it's gonna go "boom".

Haven't watched it on 5 years but the memories are good.
Overall entertaining family sitcom with the occasional sensual situations and the problems of growing...
With a not so conventional beauty like Mayim Bialik, "Blossom" centered on all of it's main characters to develop a plot on every episode. Blossom was the principal character but the show didn't focused on her 100%. Joey Lawrence was a rising star and at some points in the series run, he was stealing the show. The character of six also had her great moments.
Well I started watching this show for Bialik. I felt attracted to her for unknown reasons. I mean, she isn't beautiful in the likes of Hollywood but she had an on screen charm that only a few have.
The situations were surprisingly interesting in most episodes and involved problems of teens and young adults. So don't expect a "Full House" comedy situations.
Give a try to "Blossom" because it's certainly different. Those were the days...
