Nothing makes me happier than 90’s sitcoms. I mean, let’s be honest, TV hasn’t quite been the same since we stumbled into the 2000’s. And now, we have the chance to relive one of the greatest TV experiences of our generation, all thanks to Will Smith. ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ is back!
According to TV Line, Will is on board as the producer for the project. Overbrook Entertainment, which is Smith’s production company is in the early stages of developing a modern family comedy that puts a new spin on the original show. Now all they have to do is pitch/shop it around. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m with it.
When I heard the news, I got to thinking about other shows I’d like to see make a comeback. Here are 10 shows that I need back, like…NOW.
From Martin telling Pam that her breath smells like train smoke, to Martin and Gina’s heartwarming relationship, Martin will forever be a CLASSIC when it comes to 90’s sitcoms. Daaaamn Gina!
2. Living Single
Innnnn a 90’s kinda woooorrllld, I’m glad I got my girls! *does impossible dance* Every woman can relate to this show. When the world is whooping your ass, and even when your friends are whooping your ass, you can always count on your girls to have your back at the end of the day.
3. A Different World
This show is iconic because it’s the first show to do what it did. To show the lives of young, Black students, and what it’s like to attend an HBCU…I mean, who didn’t want to go to Hillman after watching this show? (Yes, I know Hillman doesn’t exist)
Trust me. You ain’t never met a “garbage man” like this one. Roc is by far one of the best shows of the 90’s. Roc’s temper sometimes got the best of him, but at the end of the day, he loved his family, and he loved him some Eleanor.
5. In Living Color
Talk about talent! Each and every one of these cast members were uber talented, and most of them turned out to be major superstars. Ever heard of J. Lo, Jamie Foxx, and Jim Carrey? Yea.
6. New York Undercover
Murder. Seduction. Love. Hate. And awesome music. You want it? You got it with this show. Oh, and also a little bit of eye candy. Heeey Malik Yoba and Michael DeLorenzo. And how great was the intro?
7. Sex and the City
Listen. This is just real life. Everything that’s happened to these ladies has happened to most women at least twice. That’s why we love it, and that’s why we can’t get enough of it. Sex and the City is what it would be like to be a fly on the wall at the average single woman’s apartment. It’s great. Horrifying to most men, but great to us.
So I did this quiz a few months ago to see which Black 90’s sitcom I’d be, and I got ‘Moesha.’ I said that to say, I AM Moesha. I love this show and everything it stands for. Growing pains…Moesha had a lot of ’em. But who didn’t? I can honestly say that every break up, every let down, every giggle…I felt it. Love this show. Mo to THA…E to THA!
9.My Brother and Me
I mean…what’s not to love about this? Pure, clean, fun.
10.In the House
This one is self explanatory. LL Cool J. I really don’t need to say anymore, but seriously, this was actually a really good show. At this time, I was in love with Maia Campbell, and I lived vicariously through her. So sad to see her going through what she’s going through right now. But again, this show was good fun, it was good quality, and it is definitely one of my faves! Long live the 90’s! What are some of your favorite 90’s shows you wish you could bring back?
