Blossom the TV series
aired: 1991-1995 on NBC (the pilot aired in 1990)

The show revolves around a young girl named Blossom (surprise!) and her family and friends. Her mother, Maddy, split and appears sporadically through the series, altough IIRC there were frequent phone calls. Her father, Nick, is trying to get over the divorce and date other women. The older of her two brothers, Anthony, is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. I'm not for sure, but I think her father is also a recovering alcoholic. Her other brother, Joey, is the comic relief for the show. Played by Joey Lawrence, this series really launched his career. Went on to play basically the same character in an other series Brotherly Love. His character was renowned for saying "Whoa!". Also around is Blossom's annoying friend Six, who can't ever seem to shut the hell up.

Blos"som (?), n. [OE. blosme, blostme, AS. blsma, blstma, blossom; akin to D. bloesem, L. fios, and E. flower; from the root of E. blow to blossom. See Blow to blossom, and cf. Bloom a blossom.]

1.

The flower of a plant, or the essential organs of reproduction, with their appendages; florescence; bloom; the flowers of a plant, collectively; as, the blossoms and fruit of a tree; an apple tree in blossom.

⇒ The term has been applied by some botanists, and is also applied in common usage, to the corolla. It is more commonly used than flower or bloom, when we have reference to the fruit which is to succeed. Thus we use flowers when we speak of plants cultivated for ornament, and bloom in a more general sense, as of flowers in general, or in reference to the beauty of flowers.

Blossoms flaunting in the eye of day. Longfellow.

2.

A blooming period or stage of development; something lovely that gives rich promise.

In the blossom of my youth. Massinger.

3.
