If you’re a 90s kid, then I know the shows that you used to watch growing up. The shows that you used to argue with your friends about in JHS; the ones that kept you glued to the TV before there were mobile phones. Let’s take a trip back. Let’s look at some fan-favourite shows that entertained us in the last decade.
1. Legend Of The Seeker
Aired: (2008 – 2010)
This show was the fantasy show before there was ever a Game of Thrones. It was fun seeing the seeker swing his sword around cutting down the forces of Darken Rahl.
2. The Simpsons
Aired: (1989 – Ongoing)
As at now, The Simpsons has been airing for 31 years. The show currently stands at 684 episodes. Growing up in the last decade, it was one of the first shows that showed us what adult comedy could look like.
Aired: (2005 – Ongoing)
Supernatural—aptly named after the show’s themes, follows the adventures of two monster-hunting brothers. The show is a mix of action, horror, fantasy and drama. There was homework that wasn’t done because of Dean and Sam’s adventures.
Aired: (2001 – 2014)
Please tell me if there is any action show that has done the genre as well as 24. The show was so good—and popular, that the name Jack Bauer found its way into pop-culture, as many action stars do.
Aired: (2001 – 2011)
Before TV was saturated with so … so many superhero shows, there was one: Smallville. Smallville follows the teenage years of Superman and his journey to becoming the symbol of Heroism. The originality of the show, the romance and the powerful theme song made it one that we are never going to forget.
6. Gossip Girl
Aired: (2007 -2012)
Gossip Girl was that show that you didn’t really tell people that you watched. It was everyone’s guilty pleasure. And the show has a cast of multi-layered characters such that you were always rooting for someone different.
7. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Aired: (1997 -2003)
This is another one of the oldies. A lot of people remember Buffy The Vampire Slayer for having a string female lead in an action show. There weren’t a lot of those in the last decade. And every 90s kid knows the name: Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
