American television has created a lot of impact on our lives since many decades now. Shows like Full House and Home Improvement have shaped our childhood in many ways. There were also many shows we watched as teenagers that were so much more than just a 30 minute entertainment piece on the idiot box. These TV shows actually became a part of our lifestyle. Even today, we use phrases and references from these shows because we love them and relate to them so much. The funny thing is, when we watched these shows in the ’90s, we didn’t understand a lot of the scenes and what the characters were up to, because we were still kids. But when we stumble upon an episode now, we realise a lot of things we didn’t get back in the day. Here are the shows you might have watched as a teenager in the ’90s. Let’s get right to it.
