The Retro Report: Kirk and The Fonz, The Creek and a Hellmouth, Kevin Arnold Nixes Family Reunion & More

Fred Savage recently told People Magazine that a reunion for The Wonder Years will never happen.

“You can’t really go back to it. You can’t all be 12 again, and that’s why that time in our life is so special and why all the memories still stay with us and warm us and haunt us and all those things – because we can’t go back to it.” 

Whatever, Fred. Just make a billion people happy, and do the reunion for Pete’s sake!

Did you know that Julia Duffy (Stefanie on Newhart) is married to Jerry Lacey (Rev. Trask on Dark Shadows), and has been for years? All true.

The Fonz and Captain Kirk are teaming up: Henry Winkler and William Shatner will co-star in the new ABC Family show, Better Late Than Never, alongside Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye. The show is about five guys that trek through Asia (where it will film on location) seeking life-changing experiences.

Speaking of ABC Family, the network this week starts airing weekday reruns of Dawson’s Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer to its weekday lineup starting June 22 with “fan favorite” segments based on votes culled from an online poll.

Route 66, the small-screen series starring George Maharis and Martin Milner, was beacon of creativity, ahead of its time, on every level.

The theme from The Andy Griffith Show or Mayberry, RFD? You pick.

Peace to lovers of all things classic.
