Feeling a tad nostalgic?

So are we! It is for that reason that we've decided to provide another "favorites" list (the awkward length - at six - is simply because we couldn't eliminate any of these gems). This time, we compiled our "Greatest TV Shows of the Nineties," to be watched specifically when you're yearning for the decade (which, for us, happens more often than it should, frankly). Yes, the fashion wasn't easy on the eyes, but it does make for fabulous memories. The following shows are honestly the best examples that we can think of - plus, they are just plain the best.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Let's face it, the WB seriously knew what they were doing in the 90s because it had an incredible lineup of teen angst that has yet to be matched (The CW has got absolutely nothing on it). Buffy the Vampire Slayer is just one stellar example of this. Buffy managed to combine romance, comedy, action and drama in neat, 43-minute episodes, all the while keeping Sarah Michelle Gellar looking awesome. Talk about impressive. Also, Buffy made vampires cool before they were "cool."

Dawson's Creek

If there is one character in the history of television who was subjected to the worst wardrobe ever, it was Joey Potter of the infamous Dawson's Creek. The creek was genius for its time, though when one watches it again you can't help but think, "Did the writers really think that 15-year-olds talk like this?" Also, does anyone else find it ironic that everyone's least favorite character from this series is, in fact, its title character? Or is it just us.


We take our comment about Miss Potter back, Felicity's title character definitely gives DC a run for its money in the bad fashion department. That, however, does not take away from how much we absolutely loved this show. Felicity was the first true show about college, spanning only four seasons to encompass the characters' four years of undergrad at "NYU." It was an adolescent's first glimpse into what college might be like. Our experiences to date involve a lot less over analyzing and we have yet to be caught in such an amazing love triangle, but Felicity remains one of our all-time faves.


Isn't a simple mention of "the Rachel" enough reasoning for us to adore this show for both its fashion and beauty influences? Not to mention it is probably the single most hilarious show of the decade, at least for our generation (all of you Seinfeld lovers out there).

Saved by the Bell

If you have to ask why Saved by the Bell made this list, you clearly are not a child of the 90s. Saturday morning television will never be the same, we will never be the same and I'm pretty sure Kelly Kapowski/Zack Morris hold a special place in the hearts of all current 20-somethings. Also, the fact that you can purchase this is beyond awesome.

Sex and the City

I think this one is pretty darn obvious and, yes, we did check: Sex and the City premiered on HBO in 1998. We realize that this series is still quite relevant, with its two feature films and all, but if you take a moment and start at season one, you can check out the high end of nineties fashion with our favorite ladies.
