These shows all were on the air at some point in the 90's and people loved them. That doesn't mean they were good though. Looking back, we'll see how they have aged.
All That was such a hilarious sketch comedy show. Then you rewatch it. The jokes simply don't land, and its almost as though you can't figure out when you're supposed to laugh Part of it is your age and part of it is the show's age, it just was written for kids.
Doug was showing its age at the time it was airing. It was basically like watching real life scenarios happen to cartoons. There was nothing especially exciting or interesting that ever happened, Doug was an average guy doing average things.
This show featured a crew of stereotypes: guy who gets away with everything, jock, cheerleader, smart girl, nerdy guy, and girly girl. These characters rarely have any real problems. It is fun to watch Zach be Zach and see the crazy situations the characters get themselves into and out of, but looking back, this show is pretty repetitive episode to episode.
This TV show seems like it is trying to copy the movie, The Parent Trap, but with less of a plot. Since the sisters aren't trying to get their parents together the show is mostly about them going to high school. The novelty of them being twins wore off quickly and their high jinx failed to fill the void.
This show was about hot lifeguards running down the beach. That's not enough for modern audiences anymore unfortunately. Now we have similar levels of undress with amazing plot lines like in TV shows like True Blood or any reality TV show. This show is just too basic for us now.
Teenagers using elevated language seemed charming when it first came out, but looking back it feels almost pretentious. We still love the diverse characters and adore that Pacey won Joey's heart in the end, but this show definitely shows its age.
Aside from Michelle's adorable catchphrases, this show did not have a lot going for it. It was a great show for kids because it taught some life lessons, but that was about it. Aside from the learning experience some character went through at the end of each episode, these were pretty bland storylines with not a lot of comedy or edge.
We still love these shows and have definitely ran through every episode of Saved By The Bell that is on Netflix. We're not saying these shows were never good, we're saying we're glad we watched them in the 90s because a lot of them are pretty hard to watch today.
