What's a tv show from the 90's that you loved or miss?

Asked by shpadoinkle_sue (7188points) April 26th, 2010

It was my “golden age” of television, particularly, Nickelodeon. I’ve tons of tv shows I miss from the 90’s. Too many to list here. What’s yours? Any particular reason why?

I was a big fan of Freaks and Geeks. It was a shame that it was canceled so quickly.

I loved Seinfeld and X Files.

I don’t miss them because their episodes are rerun many times each week.

@Brian1946 you read my brain! Seinfeld, X Files, and Twin Peaks. Man I can’t believe that before this year I had missed out on Twin Peaks all my life. I was obsessed with it for the first 2 months of this year. Then I got to the series finale and was pissed. But now I accept the ending they chose. Kind of. Still a kick ass show.

I grew up watching John Thaw, he was one of my Grandmother’s favourite actors and remains my favourite, and so I remember sitting down to watch the first episode of Inspector Morse and never missed an episode. I still watch them (where would we be without dvds lol) and I swear no matter how stressed I am, even on days when im not coping, it feels like someone’s put a cool cloth on my forehead. It de-stresses me, calms me, the music is wonderful, I just LOVE it. Dear Mr Thaw was sadly gathered but he still keeps me company and helps me relax on bad days. I do like that they decided to keep going with Lewis, giving him his own series, which is definitely worth watching if anyone hasn’t seen it and likes classy well made drama. Series 4 starts soon on itv, I’ll have to (as with series 3) wait for the dvd release, since my local itv station has not bought it.
hugs everyone xx

Many of the above, and SportsNight . Remarkably well written. Failed after two seasons. Everyone moved to very successful shows afterwards.

I wasn’t that crazy about Fresh Prince in the 90’s, but I really enjoy watching it now on TBS. :-p
