>SMALL WONDER (SEASON 1)
Anyone who stumbled upon this sitcom in its syndicated ’80s run knew it was special. Awful too, but that was part of its specialness. The story of a girl robot (Tiffany Brissette), her creator and his family, Wonder is like Artificial Intelligence: AI with a robust laugh track. (Theme song: “She’s fantastic/ Made of plastic!”) It’s so deeply off-kilter it’s somehow timeless.
