The 90s was packed with amazing television shows – E.R., Friends, Seinfeld, Buffy, you name it – but there were a lot more that came and went without getting the recognition they deserve. Those of us who lived and loved them haven’t forgotten, though, so join me on this trip down memory lane!
#15. Swan’s Crossing
It was the name of a town where the kids were all super rich. It could have been a hit with the Gossip Girl crowd, plus, look – Sarah Michelle Gellar!
#14. Get Real
Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg? Yes please!
#13. The Heights
Teens form a band called The Heights. Hijinks ensue.
A young Ryan Reynolds starred in this high school drama that tackled some serious issues.
#11. Breaker High
High school on a cruise ship? Yes please! And who’s that looking at us from all the way on the right…
#10. The Secret World of Alex Mack
You’d think that with the popularity of superheroes Nickelodeon would be raring to get back to that secret world, in which Alex acquired some interesting powers following a top secret chemical accident.
#9. Weird Science
Two boys dating the girl of their dreams on the computer. Not weird at all.
#8. Ready or Not
It was popular because it was relatable – just two teens doing life.
Two girls who couldn’t be more opposite are forced to get along when their parents get married…bum bum buummmmm.
#6. Malibu Shores
Keri Russell (and other familiar faces) showed up on this series about uber-rich kids from Malibu who cross paths with working class families from the San Fernando Valley.
#5. Teen Angel
He dies from eating an old hamburger and returns to watch over his best friend. Weird but genuinely fun while it lasted.
#4. Sweet Valley High
These opposite twin sisters were popular book characters and transitioned seamlessly onto the screen. At least, I thought so.
It lasted 3 seasons, so you might remember this spin-off.
#2. The Famous Jett Jackson
This kid actor moves home to have a normal life – I love that trope!
#1. California Dreams
This was sort of like Saved By The Bell but with a real band? It. Was. Awesome.
I’m not a big fan of reboots but I wouldn’t mind some of these came back around!
