Without getting too deep into the racial themes of 1968 Alabama, the show captured the spirit of the original with the confusion of a 12-year-old living in troubled times.
One aspect of the original "Wonder Years" that I always loved - carefully recreated here - is the strong father figure. It seems like every other sitcom has the "silly Dad" Homer Simpson character, bum-stumbling from one crisis to another. Dan Lauria's original dad was a hard-working, occasionally bitter man who above it all loved his family and wanted to do the right thing. In the reboot, Dule Hill plays the cool and confident, nonplussed father, anchoring his own family.
By the way, I LOL'd when the parents suggested sending their daughter to Spelman College, a black all-female college, calling it a "win-win" proposition. As in a "win-win" for the two parents.

PARIS (Reuters) -France accused U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday of stabbing it in the back and acting like his predecessor Donald Trump after Paris was pushed aside from a historic defence export contract to supply Australia with submarines.The United States, Britain and Australia announced they would establish a security partnership for the Indo-Pacific that will help Australia acquire U.S. nuclear-powered submarines and scrap the $40 billion French-designed submarine deal.“This brutal, unilateral and unpredictable decision reminds me a lot of what Mr Trump used to do,” Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told franceinfo radio. “I am angry and bitter. This isn’t done between allies.”
SYDNEY — Pal. Fellow Down Under. Hey … you.Sure, Washington, London and Canberra have just signed a huge new defense pact. But what Australians are talking about is U.S. President Joe Biden appearing to forget their prime minister’s name.
Twitter lit up with hundreds of comments calling out Mr Biden, with social media users describing him as "hopeless" and "embarrassing".
