If flipping through 200 channels has you feeling disappointed, maybe it's time to revisit some of your old favorites. Remember the days of "Must See TV" and "T.G.I.F," when all the best shows come on? Because DVRs weren't invented yet, you'd rush home to catch the newest episodes so you wouldn't be left out of the conversation around the lunch table the next day. And due to the powers of streaming, you can travel back in time and indulge in '90s shows on Netflix until your heart's content. (Or until the popcorn runs out. Whichever comes first.)
Whether you settle in for a night of binge-watching, or introduce your kids to some personal favorites from the '90s, Netflix has some great staples from a wonderful decade of TV. Even though it's hard to believe some of these shows were on the air more than 20 years ago, they still conjure up those same feelings you had the first time you cheered when Ross and Rachel finally kissed. And some of the shows that you loved as a kid may resonate in a different way now that you are an adult.
If you're ready to take a trip down memory lane and get lost in your television past, start streaming these '90s shows on Netflix, and fall in love with these characters all over again.
1. 'Freaks And Geeks'
Now matter what crowd you were in, you can find something to love about this show that celebrates the outcasts. (And see some pretty big stars in their breakout roles.)
2. 'That '70s Show'
You can't help but laugh along with the most hilarious group of high school stoners to ever date each other and hang out in a basement.
3. 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'
Watch the chosen one kick some serious vampire butt, all while appearing to be the girl next door.
This is a given. If it's not already in your queue, there's been some sort of mistake.
The whole family will have fun choosing from five seasons of scary tales while piling on the couch to watch Goosebumps. Just make sure to leave a light on at bedtime.
6. 'Saved By The Bell'
Remember the days when it didn't get any better than an afternoon at the Max? Revisit Bayside High School and all the fun that comes with it.
7. 'A Different World'
Relive the college days with the crew from A Different World, and be reminded of why flip-up sunglasses were only in style for a very short time.
8. 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers'
Go, go. . . you know the rest! If your kids have already discovered the more current version of this show, take them back to where it all began with the original '90s version of the Power Rangers.
9. 'Powerpuff Girls'
Where superhero meets girl power, the Powerpuff Girls is a show kids and parents can get into. And if you're like my friends and I back in the day, you will definitly pick which one is most like you.
I had to through this one in, since it was one of my favorite shows growing up. I wanted to be as tough as Darlene, but wear less plaid. Plus, there is always a reason to watch something with John Goodman.
11. 'The Wonder Years'
The quintessential family show, this drama is oozing with the complexities of family, friendship, and growing up. I loved this show as a kid, but I am really interested to re-watch it now that I am a parent.
12. 'The X-Files'
Now that the version 2.0 of The X-Files has hit small screens, go back to where it all began and re-watch the original series.
13. 'Xena: Warrior Princess'
Nothing will inspire you to hit the gym like watching Lucy Lawless kick butt and take names as the coolest warrior princess ever.
