Life in a small town done well
22 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you've ever gotten sentimental hearing the Alan Jackson song "The Little Man", this is an episode for you. The show follows Kevin's adventures in retail as he goes to work in a small town Hardware store. Kevin wants to make money, the owner, his boss, sees his new employee as someone to be taught and brought in to the business an apprentice sort of. The fact is that there is a new world of malls and of retail and that it may not be downtown. Kevin is torn. It is a touching episode, that as is the case in a lot of Wonder Years episodes, highlights some of the change and other things that escape the attention of us growing up. I grew up in a small town and in a small way lived this episode more than once. I knew the Pharmacist, The woman who owned the Hardware store, the Mechanics, and the gas Station attendants by name and family. It is well worth watching, probably ranking up with the Mr Collins Math class episodes.
