The Wonder Years


It was the first kiss for both of us. We never really talked about it afterwards. But I think about the events of that day again and again and somehow I know that Winnie does too, whenever some blowhard starts talking about the anonymity of the suburbs or the mindlessness of the tv generation. Because we know that inside each one of those identical boxes, with it's dodge parked out front and it's white bread on the table and it's tv set glowing blue in the falling dusk, there were people with stories. There were families bound together in the pain and the struggle of love. There were moments that made us cry with laughter. And there were moments, like that one, of sorrow and wonder"

  1. That first picture is wonderful, when I saw it in my feed with this title of a show that I was crazy for as a kid I got tingles... then that great quote and the last picture which speaks to it perfectly- divine post!

  9. thanks guys! I too loved the wonder years as a kid, and now, as an adult it seems even better - maybe because I can appreciate the writing so much more. It really is a great show, and like Anne, I don't think I've (re) watched an episode yet that hasn't made me tear it. BEST endings of any show, ever.
