Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, and peanut allergies, there was a simpler time called the '80s. For geeky 11-year old Adam these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. Written by
This show is great. Being a child of the 80's, I enjoy all of the references to the 80's such as roller rinks, Ghostbusters, ugly knitted sweaters, windbreakers, and the like.
But the show has something more to it than 80's flashbacks, the family seems genuine and there are plenty of laughs to be had. And there's heart to it as well. If you watch all the way to the very end, you get to see a real clip from the show's creator's real family videos which are the inspiration for the show.
This show gives me the warm and fuzzies. And not the kind from wearing one of those ugly 80's sweaters.
