The 1980s coming-of-age series is nothing if not a classic and continues to be a relevant piece of pop culture history to this day. Narrated by Daniel Stern, the series focuses on the misadventures of Kevin Arnold, the youngest member of the Arnold clan, as he makes his way into adulthood. Along the way, of course, he encounters a series of foibles and dramas, including an unrequited crush on Winnie Cooper. This series is one of the best family programs that helped usher in a new era of the family drama/comedy.
