Did You Know?


In Adam's bedroom, there is a poster, "Revenge of the Jedi". For a brief time, the movie was to be released with this title, and thousands of pre-release teaser posters had been distributed. Before the release, though, George Lucas felt that Jedi Knights wouldn't seek revenge, and the title was changed to Return of the Jedi. Original Revenge teaser posters are now worth a lot of money. At one point, Adam rips the poster in anger and yells that it was a collector's item after realizing what he did. But the poster would reappear in his room in following seasons. See more »

User Reviews

I enjoy this show
15 October 2013 | by charlottehightonSee all my reviews

I came to this show because of Jeff Garlin from Curb.

And I thought a show like the wonder years but closer to my decade would be awesome.

And I enjoyed it.

It is not the most hilarious show ever.

I definitely had a few laugh out loud moments. But its not just that. This show is something nice to watch without having violence or disturbing themes like many shows today.

This is one of those shows that can give you a break from shows like the walking dead, which are awesome, but can sometimes do your head in.

The 80's references don't annoy me like they have other viewers because I grew up in the 90s. And that is why I think they have so many, because it is not made just for people who were there.

I think people who grew up in the 80s enjoy this show the least.

But everyone should give it a go.

I am glad I did.
