When it comes to television, I have two different moods: I either want to watch a light comedy that will make me laugh until my stomach hurts, or I want to watch a drama that will make me sob into my bowl of Ben & Jerry’s.
There are many different genres out there, but those are the two most popular ones. There are lots of shows that seamlessly mend comedy and drama, and then there are shows that are always funny and silly. When it comes to those shows, it’s always surprising and jarring when there is an episode that deals with some really sad issues. It’s kind of like, “Whoa, what am I watching and where did these feelings come from?”
I grew up in the 90s. I grew up watching The Simpsons, Saved By The Bell and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. We watched Saturday morning cartoons and rode our bikes to the park in the afternoon. We didn’t have cell phones so we called each other’s houses. We actually rang their doorbells instead of texting them to come outside. The Internet was no where near as big as it is now so we weren’t flooded by all the media thrown at us today. That era had it’s flaws but I wouldn’t want to grow up in any other time period.
I’m a 90s kid.
