TV Shows from the 90s
Living Single – One of my favorite sitcoms from the 1990s following six friends living in Brooklyn as they juggle budding careers, love, and friendship. Queen Latifah, Kim Coles, Erika Alexander and Kim Fields are also comedy gold.
Sabrina The Teenage Witch – One of the funniest teen shows I remember watching as a kid. The show centered around a 16-year-old Sabrina who is new to her powers as a witch, while her aunts offer guidance in how to use her magical powers.
New York Undercover – As a tri-state area native, New York Undercover was quintessential TV growing up. My favorite part of the show was undoubtedly the cameos along with R&B and classic soul music performances from that era’s biggest artists.
Video Games from the 90s
Sonic the Hedgehog – Everyone loved Sonic in the ’90s and so did I. Nintendo 64 had us all cleaning our cartridges by blowing into it for maximum gaming.
Mortal Kombat II – The “Get Over Here” move by Scorpion was one of the most well-known phrases and moves growing up.
Street Fighter II – Multiplayer fighting + “Spinning Bird Kick” + “Dragon Punch” made this game an instant classic in the ’90s.
Music from the 90s
No Scrubs (TLC) – I remember staying home from school so I would be sure to catch the premiere of this video on TRL. Still one of the best music videos in terms of cinematography, visuals, and choreography.
You Outta Know (Alanis Morissette) – Arguably one of the best songs that came out of the ’90s full of anticipation, rage, and all of Alanis’ emotions on one track.
The Boy Is Mine (Brandy & Monica) – All of the high school sleepovers that I attended had us choosing sides: would we sing Brandy or Monica’s lines? (I always chose Monica.)
