    Blossom was an early 1990's sitcom about a teenaged girl growing

    Blossom was an early 1990's sitcom about a teenaged girl growing up in a home dominated by boys - two older brothers and her session musician father (her mother having abandoned the family to become a torch singer in Paris). This set, which includes the first two seasons of the show, wisely does not include the original pilot, which featured Blossoms and her brothers but a completely different set of parents. Somewhere between the tentative pilot and the time the network decided to buy the show as a midseason replacement, the showrunners managed to convince the network suits to run with their original idea, which was to give Blossom a single father who was a cool cat musician. This was a risky move in the sitcom atmosphere of 1990, when the television landscape was dominated by shows about nuclear families with a gimmicky oddity. On Blossom, the gimmick - a girl blossoming in an all-male household - soon gave way to more risk taking with topical plots that covered everything from the rising divorce rate to growing drug availability in the supposedly safe suburbs. People make fun of Blossom's "very special" episodes, but the network used that euphemism for difficult material because for the time, this show was constantly pushing the envelope. Because of that, the show has aged quite well in terms of its plots. Where it's dated is in details like Nick Russo making sure his daughter has quarters for the payphone before letting her leave the house, or in pretty much everything Blossom and her best friend Six wear. Or Joey Russo, for that matter. Speaking of whom, you can see the exact moment at which his catchphrase of "whoah" became a thing. He said it from the pilot, but it didn't get its specific inflection until season 2 episode 10, and it didn't show the fan reaction from the audience until season 2 episode 12.  When you're bingeing a show you notice these things. You also notice things that don't slip past show writers in an era of bingeing, like how Blossom's writers liked to give tertiary characters the name of Vinnie. There were an awful lot of Vinnies living in Studio City. Apparently they liked the name so much they eventually decided to give it to a recurring character and have done with it. Anyway, this show. If you're unfamiliar with it beyond a vague memory of Mayim Bialik in a flowered hat and Joey Lawrence saying "whoah" a lot, Blossom's father Nick once describes his three children thusly: "Tony is a recovering drug addict, Blossom is a 35 year old woman in a 15 year old girls' body, and Joey thinks the moon is the back of the sun." This show gets a lot of mileage out of Ted Wass's dry wit as Nick, Michael Stoyanov's ability to deliver a hysterical line as Tony, Joseph Lawrence's ability to entertainingly portray a doofus, and Mayim Bialik's sheer adorkability factor. You don't have to be on a 90's nostalgia bender to appreciate this show, but it doesn't hurt.
