90s TV Shows- TV Show reviews by ZenParent

Do you get the feeling that there are no good TV shows made for kids anymore? Though the TV shows these days might be interesting for adults, there’s so much sexual innuendo and strong vocabulary that they’re not always suitable for kids under 15. For those of us lucky to grow up in the 80s and 90s, there was plenty of clean, wholesome entertainment that could be watched by the entire family. Let’s do a flashback!



This was a show about an intelligent, quirky teenager growing up with her father and two brothers. Along with the usual teen pangs, the show also dealt with difficult topics like divorce, alcoholism and drug abuse. Oh and for those of you who didn’t know, the girl “Blossom” is now Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on Big Bang Theory!

Full House


A much-loved show about a widower bringing up his 3 daughters with the help of his friend and brother-in-law. Adored by children and adults alike, this show dealt with typical problems faced by kids at different ages and how the family acted as a support system.

Boy Meets World


An American show that chronicled the coming-of-age events and everyday life-lessons of cute Cory Mathews through middle-school and high school.

Mind your Language


A hilarious British show about a language teacher trying to teach English to a class full of immigrants. While there was definitely some stereotyping, the show was largely good-natured and had a feel-good factor.

The Crystal Maze


Another British production, this was a game show with a huge, custom-built set divided into 4 zones – Aztec, Futuristic, Medieval and Industrial. Hosted by an eccentric and mysterious host Richard O’Brien, each show featured several mini-games ranging from Physical, Mental, Skill and Mystery. My fondest memory of the Crystal Maze is watching the show with my brother while urging a contestant to get the task right!

The Wonder Years


Universally watched in the 90s, The Wonder Years was a wonderfully poignant show about growing up during the late 60s and early 70s. Every boy in our locality had a crush on Winnie Cooper while every girl in school found Kevin soo cute!
