The Wonder Years (is finally) on DVD

The Wonder Years

Cast: Fred Savage, Josh Saviano, Danica McKellar, Dan Lauria, Alley Mills, Daniel Stern, Jason Hervey

Due Out: October 7, 2014

Who’S It For? “The Wonder Years” is timeless. Thankfully it doesn’t feel dated simply because I was a child of the ’80s trying to understand life in the late ’60s. “The Wonder Years” was my gateway drug to a nostalgia I didn’t even know. Like many of you, I grew up with Kevin. I hoped for Winnie, I had friends like Paul (and probably was Paul more than I realized).

I can’t wait to show “The Wonder Years” to my son. I’ll have to wait, because he hasn’t even turned two yet, but now I have six episodes to show him, and hopefully that will just be the beginning.

TV Score: 10/10

Named by TV Guide as one of the “Top 20 Shows of the ’80s,

This season of Revenge has been as rocky as the dark seas by the Hamptons, but the second season finale, “Truth, Part 1” and “Truth, Part 2”, is an incredibly powerful, often emotional episode that proves to be a game changer in many ways.

Until the explosion that rocks Grayson Global at the end of the first hour it’s slow, mostly set up for a nonstop and engaging second half. The show makes an interesting choice in giving Takada his own revenge box. This season of Revenge seemed to be all about putting new twists on old stories and the realization that Takada has had his own agenda

Emily (Emily VanCamp) might have started to see the light at the end of the tunnel at the end of last season, but things started to fall apart pretty quickly when Amanda (Margarita Levieva) returned pregnant with Jack’s (Nick Wechsler) baby, Charlotte (Christa B.

Revenge Ep. 1.13, “Commitment”: I’ve Always Wanted A Big Sister!

Revenge Review Season 1, Episode 13, “Commitment”

Written by Mark B. Perry & Liz Tigelaar

Directed by Kennet Fink

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm Et on ABC

Louis Godfrey: Since the beginning, we’ve known that Revenge is headed towards Emily and Daniel’s engagement party at the end of the summer, at which Daniel will be shot on the beach (possibly by Jack, although we can’t be sure just yet). If last week set the pins for that eventuality, this week’s episode, “Commitment,” gets the ball rolling. And if you are going to have an engagement party, naturally you have to have an engagement. Daniel proposes to Emily in the rain and, with her chest heaving like she’s about to have a panic attack, Emily accepts without hesitation. The scene is fascinating, mostly because Emily’s reaction is both controlled and revealing – where is that anxiety that she’s fighting coming from?
