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. Written by
The character of Nick Russo was inspired by legendary rocker Dion DiMucci. Creator Don Reo was friends with Dion and admired his relationship with his kids. Reo was also inspired by J.D. Salinger's classic novel "The Catcher in the Rye" and wanted to make a version for girls. See more »
Just because your parents couldn't work things out that doesn't mean that my parents can't work things out and they are NOT getting a divorce.
Yes they are.

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...
