This one goes without saying, so we’re gonna to get it in early… Re-watching the most iconic sitcom of its generation and probably ever is something us early 90’s kids will never tire of. From singing along to the theme song and priding yourself on never missing ‘the claps’. Relating to a different character every episode (“Joey doesn’t share food”) and wishing we were sat in central perk with the gang having a coffee, talking about the hi-jinx we get ourselves into, we all had pretty much the same experience with the show.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
While having arguably the worst name for a T.V show ever. If you were to read the synopsis without watching the show I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t give it a chance (‘a young girl endowed with the ancient powers of the vampire slayer, fights the forces of darkness, battling alone, relieving the world of vampires and demons’). But against all odds Buffy won the hearts and attention of millions in the late 90’s with its daringly different story lines and complex character development.
THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR
The feel good comedy made us laugh, cry, cringe, smile changed popular culture on a global scale for good! Will Smith playing an OTT version of himself as the star and one of the best supporting casts ever put together on a tv show had every teenager around the world hooked. In the 6 years that the show ran, the character development went from funny on the surface to the viewer even caring about Jazz… JAZZ!
SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH
Based on the Archie comic of the same name, The show was a ridiculous concept when you think about it. Her two aunts Zelda and Hilda (also witches) offered her guidance in how to control her new-discovered magical powers along with Salem, a talking black cat who used to be a warlock once. The journey of her getting her witch licence is a journey that millions of 90’s kids took together. Getting into awkward scrapes and ridiculous situations that only a witch could find herself in!
SAVED BY THE BELL
This one is conic for a number of reasons and not just because of Zac Moris’ blonde locks! It’s lighthearted nature made it an easy watch but the show loved to throw a serious message in their every now and then, for example the episode titled ‘No hope with dope’ (to be fair it was A reboot of a Disney Channel show). It also launched the careers of Mario Lopez, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen, Dustin Diamond, and Leah Rimini.
