The Wonder Years is back on Star World
It has been over 30 years since The Wonder Years first premiered, and this show holds up to be essential now more than ever – by giving us the much needed sweet nostalgia. Keeping this thought in mind, Star World, home to some of the finest TV shows from around the world, is all set to take you back to the simpler times as it brings one of the golden TV classics from the era of the 1980s. The Wonder Years, which gave television a rich history, can be watched in India only on Star World, starting 27th April, weekdays at 6 PM!
For the 90s kids, satellite T.V. coming to India was like being seduced by a shiny new toy. Suddenly, Star had opened a world of foreign shows.
The Wonder Years made many of those kids, who grew up with satellite T.V. at home, crush over Winnie Cooper, seeing Kevin Arnold as their alter-ego. The mundaneness of suburban America, however far-removed geographically, found deep resonance with teens here, who found the awkwardness of adolescence and many messy complexities of relationships completely relatable. In many ways, it was a cultural milestone in our country.
Starring the award-winning Fred Savage, with voiceover narration from one of the most memorable TV villains from Home Alone, Daniel Stern, this coming-of-age show takes viewers back in time on two fronts – from the 60s, aired in the 80s. The show revolutionized the TV industry by making many bold first-timers strikes such as the single camera format which is now a trend in the comedy genre, seen in The Office, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, among other sitcoms. Adding more to the trendsetting strikes, the show introduced the no laugh track, again, a style adopted by many present time sitcoms. And what’s more, the show also gave us one of the best pilot episodes, incredible soundtracks, and the worldly-wise narration.
If you could survive those formative years, now is a chance to look back and laugh at Kevin’s exploits, relatable to so many!
Relive your ‘Wonder Years’ and watch this ideal comfort TV show from the 1980s, airing in India on Star World, weekdays at 6 PM.
