    Fantastic! What a great show I love it.

    An absolute GEM! This show captures all the WONDER from the original but from another perspective. The Nostalgia keeps you wanting more!

    The show is well written, the actors are fantastic and the production is perfect. No, it isn't just like the original. Those complaining about should have their ratings removed from the score.

    I was skeptical about this reboot at first but I gotta say; now I'm hooked! This reboot actually manages to capture that same magic as the original (which I'm a big fan of!) but from a different perspective. Great cast (Elisha Williams is going places!), characters, direction, visuals and storytelling! I'd recommend this show to everyone! 5 stars.

    They should not use the term reboot 🙄 the word boot fits though boot it off the air ..... the original was so iconic it shouldn't be touched unless the original cast come back. This pretty much has failed, the critics were like it's amazing the acting is wonderful the stories are great, The Viewers on on the other hand said why would you touch a classic and ruin it. This could be the best cast ever the most perfect writing ever it could, be so wonderful and amazing that It could win lots of awards, but like I said that's never gonna happen because they should not touch the classics. The Wonder Years I'm not just buy me it's rated one of the best TV shows ever created period why would you try and recreate it why would you lie and call a reboot,..... just like the corners who fired Roseanne I won't be watching this and I won't even give it a chance my heart lies with the original and that's just how it is call me stubborn or call it principle that's up to you but one things for sure don't use the name of something if you're not going to deliver the original product

    They shouldn't have called it The Wonder Years because people will now always compare it to the original TWY show.
  • Sep 30, 2021
    I liked the first two episodes. It could've just been it's own show. It didn't need the Wonder Years brand.

    The show is Wonderfull! So good!
