The Wonder Years

Can anyone tell me where I could get my hands on a DVD of this series? I used to love watching this as a child never got sick of it. Thanks

There was a compilation DVD released some years ago - got some rubbish reviews.

Season sets have not emerged - presumably because of music licensing issues.

Your best bet is off-air DVD-Rs.

I think there was a rumour before (which was not true) that
Marilyn Manson/Brian Warner was the geeky kid from the wonderyears

I remember that one alright. A friend of mine was a huge Manson fan and we used to say it all the time just to wind him up!

google shows it was on netflix, not sure if it still is.

And on "amazon prime", dunno if we can subscribe to that here.

Geniuses: Netflix didn't "screw up" the theme song. Even on the DVD it's the lame version because they didn't want to pay the licensing fee to use Joe Cocker's version. So blame the studio.
wonder if other songs were cut/changed

Love that show, always wanted to know what the older Kevin looked like (yes, I know I could google him now but that's no fun)



edit: I just googled him, I don't believe who it is! This is as big an eye opener as Uncle Phil voicing Shredder!

I went looking for DVD's years ago and remember reading that they'd been trying to put them out for ages but getting all the music cleared and paid for was a nightmare

Everybody's heard that rumour by now I'd say. What's amazing is that it still seems to have some traction. You still hear people mention it even though we're now in the age where taking a minute or two to look through Google will show it to be false.
