...and we're sad about it.
I can't believe we did this.
Den and I just finished watching all 115 episodes of THE WONDER YEARS
during 115 dinners we ate at home.
Like most parents, we did not allow the TV on during dinner.
But everyone is gone now and has been for 8 years. Whoa, really?
Being empty nesters and getting old like we are, has its perks.
Watching Wonder Years was all new for Den,
but I use to watch this with my sons from 1988-1990....
until the show brought up issues I didn't want them to know about back then.
I love the teenage drama....and especially the music from the 70s.
I think Dennis was drawn to it because one of the main characters,
Winnie, looking incredibly like his daughter Kim.
Especially in the episode below. If you want to just see her, go to about 3:06.
And notice the music....those great songs from my high school years were in every episode.
(because the era of this program was late 60s, early 70s)
So here's my question.....Now that we have completed the Wonder Years,
and we enjoyed it so very much, does anyone have a suggestion on what we can watch next?
We tried Mayberry but while Den can't get enough of that series, I've had my fill from the past.
We have ordered the movie Gone With The Wind and plan to
watch that over a period of about 6 dinners. (Dennis has never seen it!)
But what do we do after that? Anyone know of a particular series we might like?
Just about anything you tell us, we probably have not heard of it.
