The People Of 2009 Can Finally Get Stoned And Watch Blossom

Stop all your fussin’, slap on a smile, ’cause Blossom (Seasons 1 and 2) is finally out on DVD as of yesterday. The six-disc box set is available on Amazon for $36.99 or Netflix (but with a “long wait.”) And it has a lot of bonus features, like cast commentary, a short feature about Very Special Episodes, and Blossom trivia. Mayim Bialik and Joey (now “Joseph”) Lawrence did an interview with Julie Chen on CBS This Morning the other day, an entire third of which was devoted to the phenomenon that was “Whoa.”

After the initial excitement of the Blossom DVD news took its 20 or so seconds to wear off, I realized that as much as I loved the show as a tween, it’s very unlikely that I will actually watch all those episodes, even in the context of the imaginary “Blossom And Sassy Slumber Party” I just tried to plan in my head before realizing that that party would fall apart, because my friends are all adults now, and we prefer to do adult things, like drink wine and describe to each other the plots of recent episodes of reality television. Oh, well. At least it would make a great gift!
