The 20 series of the 90s that marked an era
The series that we present below have made us spend long hours in front of the television. How many are on your list?
20. Power rangers (1993-2002)
The quality of the settings or the performances may not have been the most orthodox, but the Power Rangers have marked the childhood of those of us who grew up in the late 80s or early 90s. Each episode seemed like an exact carbon copy of the previous one, but it was quite an adventure for us.
19. Mr. Bean (1990-1995)
The homonymous series of the 90, played by the genius of humor Sir Rowan Atkinson, was a success. This clumsy and cute character taught us that it takes very little to make us laugh . One of the few European series that makes it onto the list, although it well deserves its place.
18. Everybody loves Raymond (1996 – 2005)
Another of the series of the 90s with more audience (almost 33 million viewers saw it). The comedy won a lot of Emmys, a Golden Globe and countless other awards, despite being a fairly simple fiction. Throughout 9 seasons, we witness Raymond’s life and his family relationships.
17. A botch at home (1991-1999)
Catapulted Tim Allen’s career as an actor and introduced us to a very young Pamela Anderson , who was the protagonist for two seasons. With the original name of Home Improvement, the series presented us with the typical stereotypical American family. However, the sitcom garnered brutal audience levels, with more than 35 million viewers.
16. Xena, the warrior princess (1990-1995)
We agree that the action scenes were not entirely believable and that the interpretations were not to shoot rockets either, butAt a time when CGI did not exist, this series seemed like the best of the best . We loved the strong and combative character of Xena, a character that also appeared in Hercules, the legendary journeys, another mythical series of the 90s
. 15. Seinfeld (1989-1998)
Mythical television comedy starring Jerry Seinfeld, a successful stand-up comedian in the 90s . The series deals with everyday events and parodies them masterfully. In fact, several chapters are inspired by real experiences of the co-creator: Larry David. According to the New York Post, Seinfeld is the most profitable series in television history.
14. Frasier (1993-2004)
If we didn’t have an 80s classic like Cheers, we couldn’t have enjoyed Frasier, its spin-off either.A brilliant comedy that follows the life of Dr. Frasier Crane , who moves to Seattle after a divorce. He wants to enjoy single life but everything goes wrong when his father moves in with him.
13. Dinosaurs (1991-1994)
The series was aimed at children, but the whole family ended up watching it because it often dealt with quite controversial social issues (for the time) . This family of dinosaurs won the hearts of many people in just four seasons. How to forget the mythical “Not you, daddy!” of the little Sinclair!
12.Melrose Place (1992-1999)
It was released as a spin-off of Sense of Living, but its success was comparable. The series follows the typical youth sitcom structure, a formula that we could define as the goose that lays the golden eggs in the 90s. However, the series entered a vicious circle of bed scenes and meaningless deaths . All for the audience.
11. Sense of living (1990-2000)
The perfect example of a series that has accompanied us throughout the 90’s . Although its premiere had a rather small audience, the series gained popularity in 1991 and soon millions of people were hooked on the story of a group of teenagers in Beverly Hills.
10. Baywatch (1991-2001)
With a cast of actors like David Hasselhoff, Carmen Electra or Pamela Anderson , success seemed assured. However, it was Hasselhoff himself who relaunched the series in 1991, serving as executive producer. It did not obtain the expected audience levels, but its international success has made it an essential part of the series of the 90s
. 9. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003)
Buffy bravely faced demons, vampires and other creatures of the dark, thus breaking with the cliches of the blonde girl in horror movies . Halfway between the 90s and the new century, Buffy the Vampire Slayer dealt with such controversial issues as feminism or homosexuality. Another series that you must see yes or yes.
8. Alpha (1986-1990)
Who did not take affection to this nice alien is because he does not have a heart. His snout full of curves and his orange fur have become an icon of world television, although the series would end up being canceled due to lack of budget. Special mention for the Tanners, the family that had the privilege of coexisting with him.
7. House Matters (1989-1997)
One of the quintessential African-American comedies. The series originally focused on the character of Carl Winslow, the police chief and family man, but Steve Urkel was such a phenomenon that this annoying neighbor became the epicenter of the show . We’ve all come to love and hate this annoying squeaky-voiced nerd at the same time.
6. Saved by the Bell (1989-1993)
The lives of six California teenagers captivated millions of people around the world and served as inspiration for countless later fictions . It had two spin-offs, although their success was not comparable to that of the original series.
5. Twin Peaks (1990-1991)
On April 8, 1990, master David Lynch brought to the world one of the most acclaimed mystery series of all time. Laura Palmer’s murder became a state affair and managed to hook millions of viewers to the screen. Of course, the premiere of a third season in 2017 left much to be desired.
4. The X Files (1993-2018)
Thanks to the creators of this 90’s series for letting us know that “the truth is out there”. Mulder and Scully are two FBI agents, although he is fascinated by paranormal events and she is totally skeptical. How many times have we whistled the melody of its main theme?
3. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990 – 1996)
“Now listen to the story of my life, how fate changed my move”. And Will’s moves lasted 148 episodes spread over six seasons. Behind the antics of a boy from Philadelphia and his charismatic cousin Carlton, the series dealt with other deep issues such as racism or family abandonment . Enormous.
2. Friends (1994-2004)
Although it was released in Spain under the name of Colegas,Friends became the most brilliant sitcom of all time . A group of friends residing in Manhattan live good and bad times, a reflection of life itself that had a tremendous ratings success. Who does not remember the famous theme ‘I’ll be there for you’
1. The Simpsons (1989-present)
For the number of times they have made us laugh, for the reflections they give us in each episode and for being the family most charismatic of America, the Simpsons deserve to be in the first place of series of the 90s (and maybe of all time) that you have to see.
