Life lessons from 90s television

Home Entertainment Life lessons from 90s television

20 comments May 06/13 Entertainment, Misc

My weekend was extremely low-key.  The weather was pretty gloomy, so I spent lots of time inside doing chores and working on the blog.  On those kinds of days, I always have old television shows playing in the background.

While I was in the middle of a Charles in Charge marathon, I had a very random idea for today’s post.

It’s intended to be completely lighthearted, and I hope that all of my fellow TV buffs out there enjoy it!

Have a good one!


(PS- If you liked this post, you may also enjoy “12 lessons that I learned from watching I Love Lucy.)

  1. I’m really grateful that you not only included Charles In Charge, but that you put it first. This sitcom masterpiece is often overlooked by our generation. The only one of these shows I didn’t watch religiously was Blossom, I’m not sure what I was thinking?

    • I am a huge Charles in Charge fan! You know, I actually didn’t watch much Blossom either. I just never really got into it. I think it was the awful dancing during the opening song.

  2. HAHA! These cracked me up. Especially the curly mullet! Even as a tween I knew there was something unacceptable about that!

  3. I love this!! Where can you watch all these shows? I would kill for some Clarissa

    • You can watch Clarissa on Netflix. It’s awesome! There is some channel that actually recently replayed the shows too…but I’ll be darned if I remember which channel it was! You can also order on Amazon. :)

  4. I remember these shows! It’s great to go back to them once in a while.


  5. This brought a smile to my face…all the shows I grew up on…what a walk down memory lane!! Now I am gonna be singing Prince of Bel Air theme song for the rest of the day! :)

  6. I’m not sure I can pick just one favorite! But if I have to, it’s gotta be the curly mullet :)
    Missed you this weekend! I know I keep saying it, but love to see y’all sometime soon!

    • Haha. The curly mullet is classic, right? We really do need to see you soon. My hubby works near you, so maybe we can meet up the next time we go to visit him!

  7. This has to be the best blog post ever!!

    No joke! I love it.

    I’m so glad I found someone who shares my love of classic television.

    I love all the old 90′s shows you mentioned and I actually just watched Charles in Charge this weekend.

    I had a Laverne & Shirley, Three’s Company, Charles in Charge and Facts of Life Marathon haha.

    Clarissa is on Netflix?

    I’m so going to go check that out now :)

    Have a great week.

    • I am SO SO SO glad that you liked it! :) Even better, I am so happy that I am not the only person who goes back and watches all of those shows. You rock.

  8.! totally made my night reading and reminiscing of my fave 90s shows!!

  9. Michelle

    Love this post obviously!!!

  10. I watched way too much TV in the 90s – YIKES!!! Loving your post – I relived the 80s (theme for the beer festival I attended) and now the 90s this weekend:)
