So fun to watch!

Really like the reflection of history and teenage life, so different from what we deal with today.

I loved it when it came out originally in the 80's and I love it now.

Most long lasting tv serials become just plain bad in their final season. I think they replace the oringinal writters or something. The Wonder Years is the exception. The last season was as good as the first season and all the seasons in between were equally good. In my opinion this is probably the best TV series ever made.

Of all the TV shows I've watched, The Wonder Years is especially close to my heart. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, I watched every episode of this amazing show every week with my family. It was our favorite after dinner ritual, and watching these episodes again after all these years, thanks to Amazon instant video download, has brought back all those cherished memories.

In my opinion, this is one of those rare shows that has withstood the test of time. The characters, Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage), Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano), Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar), and the Arnold family were all reminders of parts of ourselves and the situations were so true to real-life, and always, an element of humor and poignancy ran through each episode, made all the more unforgettable by the great music evocative of the era it was set in.

Season Six marked the last season for this stellar show. Kevin Arnold and gang begin 11th grade and the episodes take viewers to the summer right before their senior year. So much happens this season - Kevin's dad embarks on a new business venture, Norma decides to become a full-time career woman which was groundbreaking for the time, Wayne mellows a little after he gets involved with a young divorcee with a son and learns the pitfalls of romance yet again, Kevin and Winnie's relationship continues to experience turbulent times, Kevin's friendship with Paul changes, and many more.

The issues explored this season are a bit more serious than previous seasons. After all, the kids have all grown up and the changes they undergo, both physical and emotional, impact them in different ways. It was a bittersweet experience watching these kids grow up, literally over the course of the show, from gawky, awkward young kids to young men and woman.

This sixth (and finale) season of "The Wonder Years" starts and ends with a bang. In between, there are ups and downs indicative of most farewell seasons. However, there are enough "ups" to keep it an interesting show to watch, full of family themes and humor.

My personal highlights from this season include:

-The premiere, in which Kevin (Fred Savage) and Wayne (Jason Hervey) discover that the effects of the Vietnam War on buddy "Wart" (Scott Menville) may be more serious than anyone could imagine.
-Kevin's "first job" (a concept most of us can relate to) working at the Chinese restaurant.
-Father Jack (Dan Lauria) making a life-altering decision regarding his workplace.
-The addition of Jeff (Giovanni Ribisi) to the cast. Since Paul (Josh Saviano) was off-again, on-again for much of the season, the addition was much-needed.
-An episode entitled "Poker", in which Kevin and friends realize that the problems of youth are giving way to the problems of adulthood (I wonder if this is about when the show realized there was going to be no seventh season?).

From that premiere up until the final two episodes, the season ranked about three stars for me. The family stories/humor was as good as ever (if not better), but the school- & friend-based episodes were descending into sometimes abysmal territory (e.g. an episode about a girl with a big nose).

But then, the two-part finale ("Summer" & "Independence Day") changes everything. I have watched a lot of television shows to their completion, and to this day I still consider the final Wonder Years montage to be the best wrap of any series, bar none.

Great series! I remember it from back in the day. I had not seen the final episode and was glad to have the opportunity to see it. I have to say I was surprised at the way it ended. Throughout the entire series I had thought it would end up typically "happy-ever-after."

I grown up during this time frame. The series reviews the history of the period in a respectful manner with a twist of humor. I an so glad Amazon Prime offers the series. I plan on watching every episode.

Great family show to watch with teens. Deals with some sensitive teen subjects such as sex, drugs, alcohol, etc- but in a sensitive way. Much better than many other shows on tv now!!! I have enjoyed the opportunities to discuss different topics.
