    Yes, Kevin, Paul and Winnie are back. My Wishlist for this show has finally paid off.

    Starting Monday, April 2, Ion (Directv channel 255) is airing an episode of The Wonder Years at 9 p.m. (central) and a second episode at 9:30 p.m. beginning with the pilot. I think this will be the first thing I've watched on Ion.

    If you're a fan of the show, be sure to set a Season Pass. I'm really looking forward to seeing this show again. It was one of my all-time favorites.

    For those still confused, ION is the latest iteration of what used to be PAX.

    And, I thought she looked good when she did the guest appearance on NCIS. The girl next door is all grown up.

    Yep, pretty much. She's breathtakingly beautiful and very, very smart.

    You're welcome.

    I just wanted to share the good news. I've had The Wonder Years as a Wish List item ever since I got a TiVo and up until now, it has only found a documentary about the show a couple years ago.

    The show resonates with me, even though I started junior high about 8 years after Kevin Arnold did. The neighborhood and the school and situations in suburbia remind me of being a kid in the late 60s and early 70s.

    Couldn't they pick a better time than 10 pm? Hopefully any conflicts can be recorded at another time, or I guess I could use my backup DVR, but I like to keep everything all on one.

    But thanks for the heads up. I love the show. I doubt I saw all of them when they originally aired, so it will be great to see them all. tv.com says they had 115 episodes, so we'll be able to see the whole series 11 and a half weeks. Awesome!

    I don't think its going to be shown nightly (monday thru friday), but it doesn't look it its exclusively on Monday nights either. At least, based on the guide data as of yesterday.

    You're right. My guide data is now showing it airing nightly 4/2 thru 4/6 and again on 4/9 and 4/10. That's as far as my guide data goes right now for Ion. It didn't look this way even as recently as yesterday.

    I had to set up a SP on my backup tivo as the number 1 show because I already have a conflict on Weds., Lost and Medium, which have to get recorded on the HR20 so I can see them in HD and The Wonder Years can go to the SD Tivo.

    Ahhh...the return of my favorite all-time show, excellent, SP is set.
    Never seems to stay on very long, but it's always fun while it lasts.
    I never found Danica McKellar to be all that attractive...sure the thigh-high boots are always hot, but other than that...meh. "Karen" was always the hot one on the show, tree-hugging hippie character aside.

    Too bad it won't be on an HD channel.
