Blossom: The Wait Is Over.


Days, months, years in the making, Blossom Seasons 1 (and 2!) have a DVD release date set for January 27th, 2009. The process of locating Joey Lawrence alone took about 3 years. Found hidden in the outskirts of Des Moines, the "Woah" meister finally agreed to get into the commentary studio with Blossom, Anthony Russo, and Six. His main objection to joining the rest for episode commentary was that he didn't have a weird real name like they did. (Mayim Bialik, Michael Stoyanov, and Jenna von Oy!).

This is the only show to preface every single episode with "A Very Special...". I recommend episode 109, "The Date", in which Blossom is assaulted by her date. On the special scale, it's about an 8. It's also one of the only episodes I have any memory of, which is surprising since I never watched the show once in my life and nobody can really prove otherwise.

True fans of the series could still follow Jenna (Six) on TV when she joined the cast of The Parkers in 1999 on UPN. The Parkers was actually a spin-off of Blossom's seldom seen, incredibly unfunny black neighbors who are grossly overweight, beyond stupid, and once stole Six's bike in 10th grade. Thanks to Six, she carried The Parkers and helped it survive just as long as Blossom (5 Seasons. Seriously.) and over 100 episodes.

Hay hay hay.
