Laura Reviews: The Wonder Years

The Wonder Years was the Boy Meets World of the 60s. Only it didn't run in the 60s, it ran in the 90s. It was just about the 60s. And 70s. It was a guy voice-overing his amazingly detailed reminiscences of junior high and high school as they were played out by a young Fred Savage.

         Here's how TWY and BMW compare.
