You could have left out the "'90s teen-angst" part and it wouldn't have changed my answer.  I *love* that show.  The only thing that could have made it better would be if it had gone on longer!

And, on a slightly related note, I am so glad Claire Danes has reappeared onscreen.  :)

My So-Called Life is also my favorite. Sorry for the teen-angst thing I had to make the question interesting. :)

nate... Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

Yeah, I was kinda wondering about that.. :)  The only one that's realy a teen-angst show is My So-Called Life..

Good show, at least, what I saw of it.. it was a little after my time.

the wonder years was pretty angsty. especially with the neverending drama of kevin and winnie's relationship.

I can agree with that!  Behind all of b.s. on 90210 the cat fights were pretty good and they did cover some tough topics.  However, 90210 I when I did catch it, was like a bad accident I just couldn't look away.  That wasn't very often though.  :)

It's on Video and DVD. :)

My So-Called Life... far and away.  Although I admit that these all aired during my TV era (when I knew the day by the shows on that night *shudder*), so I watched all of them except 21 Jump Street.  Wasn't that the cop show?
Agent Scully Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
*sigh*

21 Jump Street

Fox show from the 80s.

Yes a cop show where they would go undercover in schools to solve some sort of crime.

One of the writers was from Buffalo so many of the schools on the show were ones that were located in and around Buffalo.

Like mine. :) "Sacred Heart Academy" The show focused on a pyromaniac that tried to burn the prom down.

*sigh* Johnny Depp *sigh*

I'm strictly a "Square Pegs" 80's angst guy myself.

Hey, nobody better say that my boyfriend is a dog!
Jºnªthªn Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
and an UUUUGLY dog at that!
Erika Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
square pegs ruled! a friend of mine taped it back when it was on and he passed the collection on to me
Mollie · 16 years, 5 months ago
I wasn't a teen during any of the 1990's, and never watched any of these shows during their original airing. You insensitive clod.
emilie is CRANKY · 16 years, 5 months ago

i've can honestly say i've never seen any of those, except for one episode of the wonder years a couple years back. we did have some of them over here, i was just probably too young at the time to be interested in teen angst :D

and doesn't dawson's creek count as 90's teen angst? ;)

iPauley Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
It started in '98 (I remember watching the premier in my dormroom freshman year), so I'd say yes.

no one · 16 years, 5 months ago
For most of the 90s I was in the forties, a bit too late for teenage angst. In my teens there were no teen-angst shows. Instead, there was a pop group singing a song, the first line of which went: "Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away"

*Sob*
Talcott Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
Oh yeah! Pete Best's old band, right?
no one Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
Mhh, what a coincidence, that would have been the only option I could have voted for, had it been there. Not even "other" or "...insensitive clod" were appropriate.
Agent Scully Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
My parents were subjected to most of these shows only because some were on during dinner and I made them watch it instead of taking my dinner to my room to watch the show. :)

So my parents were well over your age when they watched any of these programs.

However talking 80s angst, My dad was a fan of 'Square Pegs.' Jonathan, did you know that TVLand shows the show on the weekends?

Age doesn't matter when watching these shows...hell I watch cartoons and NOGGIN! :)
no one Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
WHAT? TV on during dinner? Disgusting!

btw, i let slip that i was in my forties in the 90s, but so far i managed to avoid growing up. go, bugs bunny!
Agent Scully Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
kitchen table next to family room.

Sure the TVs on - tell my father when he was watching the first season of Survivor during dinner.

I left the room and ate upstairs watching "Whose Line."
zil Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

you let it slip? you didn't want us to know how old you are? *winkwink* I likes em on the older side... hell I likes em all. ... so long as they're good and geeky. mmmm geek.

bugs bunny is my hero.

nate... Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

I agree... we were forbidden to watch TV during dinner, even though we had a TV in there.

The only exceptions were educational specials, on PBS and such... but they were few and far between.

heh

 

Agent Scully Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
Wow!

This is when you were kids?

My parents weren't home together to eat dinner together.

I'm an only child. Dad worked nights, Mom worked days.

Dinner time was just myself and my mom so we watched TV together with the old TV tables.

The TV tables are long gone but we still watch TV while eating.

Each family has their own traditions for dinner - doesn't make them wrong. :)

Signed, Child of the 70s and 80s. ;)
nate... Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

Yep...

I dunno... I mean, when we could, we had dinner as a family... (I have two sisters...)  but many times my dad worked late.... even so.. even if it was JUST my mom and I... TV was not allowed during dinner.

That was a time to talk...

*shrugs*

I kinda like that concept. :)

Agent Scully Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
I think we talked a lot when there wasn't dinner. :)

Dinner was also my time to read books.

My mom hates that I do that now at the table. :)
goovie is married! · 16 years, 5 months ago
my so-called life, of course. i was so angela, and i had a mad crush on brian krakow (the geeky jewish boy...who woulda thunk it?). i can't wait til i have money again and can buy the series on dvd.
ShrinkMan · 16 years, 5 months ago
You trying to tell me that Buffy had no 'teen angnst' content, or Angel, or Roswell (the supernatural as a premise does not negate teen angst - in fact, it can provide an adept vehicle to emphasize such internal suffering). Hell, what about Feaks and Geeks (one I never watched, but heard alot about).
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
freaks and geeks was an amazing show -- like my so-called life, cut down long before its prime.
iPauley Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
I'd almost put "Undeclared" in there, too -- not quite as ground-breaking, but still shot down way too early.

Johnny Depp was sooo droolable then..and so full of anger!

cool poll Karen!

I loved Clarissa. My friends had crushes on her. I used to wish I was as pretty as her with "Blossom's" clothes. Shut up I was in grade-school/jr. high. :^P
nate... Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

Yeah, she was wicked cute in that show.. I had a little crush on her... even if she was a year older than me. heh

Too bad that cuteness didn't last.

:)

 

Talcott Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
Don't forget that she had TMBG posters, and would plug them sometimes on the show!
Karen is tired Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

This is true and speaking of TMBG I am going to see them tonight! :D

Michael (foof) Maki Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

Mmmmm...Joey Lawrence...

Umm...I'm sorry...were you saying something? ;-)

goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
no, not joey. *matt* lawrence. mattmattmattmattmatt. yum.
Agent Scully Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

Joey Lawrence was on the TV show "Blossom."

Would that be considered early 90s angst?

Joey also released a CD.  :)

Annika Back · 16 years, 5 months ago
Joey Lawrence is soooo dreeeeeaaaaamy!! :^P

nate... Back · 16 years, 5 months ago

Dear god, do you even need to ask that?
