the wonder years
While neither actor seems quite perfect, tonally, for the offbeat, referential comedy, the choices may prove brilliant for that very same reason.
With that in mind, we got to thinking about some other slightly plausible, square-peg-in-round-hole teacher choices that might just be crazy enough to work.
Even if they don't take any of our casting advice, that faculty lunchroom is about to get even weirder, in the best way possible.
To honor the arrival of the greatest season of all, AOL TV rounded up a list of our absolute favorite summer TV episodes -- the ones that remind you of the beach, of fireworks or of hanging out with friends.
Though we encourage you to spend your holiday weekend outside, preferably grilling and/or swimming, marathoning these summer-themed TV episodes indoors with the AC on full blast is an acceptable alternative. After the jump, AOL TV's list of our favorite quintessentially summer TV episodes.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, 'Glee,' 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Ally McBeal' have been added to Netflix's instant stream feature. It's just 'Glee' season 1 at the moment, but we all know how great some of those episodes were. 'Sons of Anarchy' season 1 and 2, along with the entire series of 'Ally McBeal' are currently available.
"Our expanded non-exclusive streaming arrangement with Netflix maintains Fox's flexibility to effectively manage both the content we offer, and the appropriate window of availability relative to our other distribution partnerships," Peter Levinsohn, president of new media and digital distribution at Fox Filmed Entertainment, said in a statement.
While compiling a list of our five favorite celebrity narrators, only two stipulations were used: First, this list only deals with scripted american programming. Documentaries don't count, nor do any overseas imports. Second, the narrator in question can not have appeared on screen as a regular character on the series (although in some instances, the narrator is a future version of the main character, played by a different actor).
That being said, here are our five ...
Danica told People magazine, "I'm nearing the end of my first trimester and I'm so excited – I've been bursting to tell people." The 35-year-old veteran of 'The Wonder Years' -- and brainiac mathematician -- has been working on a new book, her third, called 'Hot X: Algebra Exposed.' It comes out in August if you're ready to pre-order it!
A couple of years ago, TV Squad put Danica In the Limelight. Ryan learned that Danica had graduated Summa cum Laude from UCLA with a degree in Mathematics. She is the McKellar in the Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem.
Both a first season and a complete series edition of the Emmy-winning comedy, which premiered on Fox in 1997, are scheduled for a release date yet to be determined.
But while we're more than willing to shell out 130 bucks for the complete series, the news only reminded us of other shows that are still awaiting the proper DVD treatment.
So listen up, studios: Here are seven TV shows we're dying to see on DVD.
The bad news? Summer's almost over and it's nearly time for school again.
The good news? We've got just the thing to ease you into back-to-school mode: Our countdown of TV's 21 best school shows ever.
So sharpen your No. 2 pencil and dive in to see which series just make the grade and which ones are at the top of the class.
I'm one of those suckers who really loves a good holiday episode of a TV show. Whether it's Friends or The Simpsons or The West Wing, I get all choked up when a couple gets together or a family learns the true meaning of Christmas and a carol is played at the end. I still remember the Christmas episodes on Guiding Light in the 80s, with Nick visiting and helping out Philip and Beth and Rick and other Springfield citizens. (Wow, not only do I love Christmas on TV, I love Christmas on soap operas...yikes).
AOL has a 10 question quiz about Christmas TV. How much do you know about The Wonder Years, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Home Improvement? This is the best I've ever scored on one of these AOL quizzes. I got 9 out of 10. Damn you, Grey's Anatomy!
The real neighbors you want are ones who are courteous, quiet, and friendly. Or hot. Here are the seven television neighbors you'd want in real life:
OK, I guess it doesn't really make me feel old, since The Wonder Years was quite some time ago. But still, little Kevin Arnold is a dad? It probably doesn't help that I already feel old because my nephew had a baby a couple of weeks ago.
Fred Savage and his childhood sweetheart (awwwwww) wife Jennifer Lynn Stone welcomed a 6 pound, 13 ounce boy on Saturday night. Fred and Jennifer got married in 2004, but don't worry fans, he remains good friends with former costar Danica McKellar (Winnie).
If you're not into math books for middle school girls (and I would totally question you if you were), you can see McKellar soon on the Lifetime series, Inspector Mom, and on her new Yoga DVDs, Daily Dose of Dharma. You just saw the word 'yoga' and forgot everything I wrote about math, didn't you?

Danica started acting early, with a couple of guest appearences on The Twilight Zone, before landing the role of Winnie on The Wonder Years. The show had a great, award winning five year run, but once it ended, Danica did what many child stars fail to do: bow out gracefully. Besides doing a few voiceovers for cartoons, Ms. McKellar spent the next couple of years at UCLA. In 1998, she graduated from there Summa cum Laude, with a degree in Mathematics. Remember the next time you use the Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem, because she actually discovered that! Yea, I've never used it either and I have no idea what it means.
