Critic Reviews for The Wonder Years: Season 1

Audience Reviews for The Wonder Years: Season 1

  • Dec 07, 2022
    Poor rendition if I must say so. Bad acting and there trying to hard to remake a classic into something it was never meant to be.
  • Nov 06, 2022
    Smh..............................
  • Oct 06, 2022
    Kevin Arnold was one of a kind. Trying to tell the story again, this time pandering to minorities, doesn't work.
  • Sep 28, 2022
    Started out rough but at least it slowly got better towards the end. Key word; slowly.
  • Aug 22, 2022
    Every bit as meaningful and charismatic as the original series. The stories are well-written, the acting top-notch, and the main characters portrayed with a great deal of skill, nuance, and meaningfulness. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the series. The Williams family are characters I wish I could know in real life. They're good people and I can't wait to see more of this series.

    Debo confesar que cuando escuche acerca del Remake, me pareció una mala idea, después se habló acerca de que seria la historia una familia de color y como muchos pensé que seria inclusión forzada, sin embargo afortunadamente nos dimos la oportunidad de verla, y ha sido un grato descubrimiento, respeta el estilo de la versión original, los temas de racismo los aborda de manera magistral, ahora se ha vuelto tradición ver con mi esposa e hijas cada episodio, como lo hice yo con mi padre

    If you are looking for an extremely funny, coming of age television show filled with enough love to cover the whole planet, this is the right show for you. Absolutely loved each and every second of it. It's so homely that you feel like you are part of the family. I wish I could erase it from my brain just to watch it all over again.

    Love this show!!! I was a fan of the original and this one is a breath of fresh air, especially for a Black person. It's refreshing to see an average, wholesome Black family during that time period and explore their tragedies and triumphs. The racist/sexist situations that are shown are necessary because they are realistic. It's ridiculous how people want to pretend that it didn't/doesn't exist. It doesn't matter if it makes you uncomfortable, the truth is uncomfortable sometimes. Also, ask yourself WHY it makes you uncomfortable…because it was definitely "uncomfortable" for those on the receiving end of the racism and sexism. Instead of being offended, make it a teachable moment and learn from it. Anyway, I love how the characters have such great chemistry and Dean is such a little charmer! Keep renewing this show!

    What an amazing show. It deals with all the issues that any family in America would have had do deal with and some more specialist subject matter too. I see a lot of criticism for no other reason that it has the same name as the original show but doesn't use the same characters. The usual idiots throwing around words like woke give away their real problem. However the show does something magical. It shows the same world from the other side of the tracks and twists the meaning of wonder (wonderful) as used in the original series to (wonderment) as it is used in the reboot. I overheard an American friend's conversation where he mused how wonderful and idyllic it must have been to live in America in the 1950s. I replied by saying, ''Yes, if your name is Richie Cunningham and you live in Milwaukee Wisconsin but maybe not so much if your name is Rosa Parks and you live in Montgomery Alabama.'' This show skillfully and charmingly navigates this discussion.

    I love this show. I record it every week and would never miss it. Everyone is great to watch. I especially like the dad. He is so funny! I wouldn't miss it. I hope it is renewed. It is one to watch forever!
