There are many similarities to The Wonder Years (1988) on this show. The narrator talks about his childhood life. Barry bullies Adam, just like Wayne bullied Kevin. Adam and Dana's relationship is similar to the relationship between Kevin and Winnie Cooper. See more »
In several episodes the local convenience store Wawa is advertising beer and liquor. In Pennsylvania only "state stores" are permitted to sell liquor. See more »
I have to admit, that when I watched the first episode of this show, it reminded me so much of The Wonder Years that it was distracting. That being said, after episode 2 and 3, I hardly notice the narration. I think the first episode had a ton more narration because of character introductions and such, but 2 and 3 have gotten progressively funnier, and all of the 80's nostalgia is very endearing to me.
I grew up in the 80's, and this show hit's the nail on the head! The characters are believable and relate-able, the writing is very cohesive and well thought out, and the acting is very convincing and hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud over and over again.
Don't listen to all the haters. Give this show a shot and you won't be disappointed.
