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 »
Many misplacings of 80s cultural items throughout the series are intentionally done by the show's creator, Adam F Goldberg. See more »
A good honest well acted comedy that is also funny!
A late (2nd season) quick review.
This is a very good family sitcom based on the actual life of its writer when he was a teenager. The presentation of the show is using the narration of an older version of himself with emphasis in the specific characteristics of the 80s that leaves a nostalgic feeling for the era.
No fake laughs (live or prerecorded) here.
Exceptional casting. True to life situations. Funny in a good way (without being ridiculous or vulgar like other comedies out there). Honest to the heart.
In a sentence: Watch it and you wont be disappointed!
