By , Contributor
In 2014, StarVista Entertainment/Time Life issued the classic TV series The Wonder Years as a complete box set. The company went to great pains to include nearly all of the original classic rock-era music as heard in the original broadcasts. Following the standalone release of the first season last year, The Wonder Years: Season Two arrives on DVD February 3.

The 17-episode, four-disc DVD set includes over two hours of bonus features. The episodes themselves feature some four dozen classic songs by the original artists, including Bob Dylan, Carole King, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, Cream, Bing Crosby, Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel, Traffic, Diana Ross and the Supremes, James Taylor, Nat King Cole, The Miracles, Judy Collins, and Donovan.

Official Synopsis (from the press notes): Kevin confronts the day-to-day pressures of junior high school life: kids don't know what they want, and the girls are just as confused as the boys. On the home front, older brother Wayne (Jason Hervey) continues his bullying ways, but Kevin fights back and grows some backbone. However, his inner strength is tested when he participates in a class walkout to protest the Vietnam War, and joins his pals Paul Pfeiffer (Josh Saviano) and Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) to stop developers from destroying Harper's Woods, the site of many happy childhood memories.
