Couch Potato: 90's shows are still quality TV
|Couch Potato is a weekly blog focusing on the current happenings in the world of television. Come back next Tuesday for the next edition.|
Now, this is a story all about how TV shows got flipped-turned upside down. And I'd like to take a minute-- Just sit right there-- I'll tell you how I miss the prince of a town called Bel-Air.
Well, okay, so those weren't the actually lyrics, but they do get my point across—I miss old shows, like "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Whatever happened to quality shows about teenage fun, and care-free days? It seems like all there is to watch on TV nowadays are pregnant teenagers, meaningless hookups, and borderline obese toddlers. If you're on Team 90's, here are some quality shows you could watch. If you've already seen them when you were a kid, try watching them again because things are much different 15 years later.
"The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"
"Boy Meets World"
"Boy Meets World" is just about the sweetest show in the world. It is an all-American television sitcom that follows the growth of Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), a Philadelphian who through his adventures learns every-day lessons. The show aired for seven seasons from 1993 to 2000 on ABC. The seasons are still playing on ABC Family and MTV2. If you're looking for something to cheer you up, this show is bound to put a smile on your face.
"Saved by the Bell"
"Saved by the Bell" follows adventures and life-lessons of a colorful group of friends and the principal of Bayside High School in Palisades, Calif. Although the series is funny and is supposed to be carefree, it still touches many teens. Think of it as a classy version of 90210. The show had 4 seasons and still plays on MTV2.
They all aired on TV in the 1990's and became big hits for a reason: the lovable characters and the light comedy. If you're tired of the trashy shows of our day and age, give these a watch.
