I saw a post today on Twitter with a picture of Mork and Mindy and it made me think about all the cool shows I used to watch when I was growing up…
- Saved by the Bell
- Sister Sister
- Mork and Mindy
- California Dreams
- My So Called Life
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- Ally McBeal
- Knightmare (loved the recent anniversary edition!)
- Scooby Doo
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Sex and The City
Ok, I know the age-range for the above is rather varied but they all mean something to me, and bring back all kinds of good memories.
The child in me would love to see ‘My So Called Life’ again – Claire Danes was amazing even back then.
The teenager in me would love to see ‘Buffy’ make a comeback, but maybe given how much time has passed, this may just be a little sad..
The early twenties me would love to see ‘Ally McBeal’ again; I swear, as much as that show was slated, I thought it was epic genius.
It’s just amazing to look back and think about how TV has changed, how much culture has changed, how much reality TV has dumbed down TV in so many ways (not that I don’t watch it… but still, isn’t it easier to do a reality show than to think of something original and creative?)
Maybe one day one of these shows will come back … and if they do, sure I’ll be happy… but I’ll bet you I’ll feel totally old.
