We all love Clarissa. If you were a typical tween in the 90's you'll relate when you see hub caps on bedroom walls and ladders outside windows. Yes, we loved her original style, her talent for coding computer games, and her awesomely decorated bedroom. We looked to her for wisdom and our daily dose of useless facts and advice. Yet, here we are 22 years later and we can't help but address the fact that Clarissa forgot to explain a few things and answer some very important questions.
In this first ever episode of the Generation Y Podcast, Amy and Josh discuss the phenomenon that was ABC's TGIF.
California Dreams. Aired 1992-1996
A teen sitcom about a group of friends, and a heavy metal band. You may remember California Dreams covering a range of topics surrounding issues that teens face. Remember how every sitcom always aired a “...and tonight on a very special episode of…” where they would cover a serious issue such as drug use or peer pressure? Well that was practically every episode of California Dreams.
Clueless. Aired 1996-1999
Clueless was a spin off of the amazingly awesome movie, Clueless. Was the show as amazingly awesome? No. Cher is not Cher unless she’s played by Alicia Silverstone. The show did not make many connections, or keep the plot the same as the actual movie. It wasn’t very good, but hey that didn’t stop us from watching it.
Remember Brandy, The R&B Singer? She played a high school girl named Moesha, living in LA. The show was a typical teen sitcom focusing on teen issues such as teen pregnancy and drug use. It aired on the UPN network and quickly became one of the network’s biggest hit shows.
A video game junkie’s dream was to appear on Nick arcade. It starts with two teams who compete against each other by answering questions about video games. The object of the virtual reality game was to make it to the video zone, to play against the video game wizard of the day.
Land of the Lost. Aired in 1991
