Let鈥檚 just all agree: We鈥檝e had excellent taste in TV shows since a very young age. Prior to the days of聽Scandal,聽The Good Wife聽(RIP) and聽The Mindy Project, we were equally on point in terms of our beloved sitcoms, dramas and聽America鈥檚 Funniest Home Videos reruns.聽So in the name of聽nostalgia, let鈥檚 revisit five of the best 鈥90s TV聽shows聽that are definitely worth another stream (as are these 鈥90s movies you need to watch again). Also, to anyone who tries to write off their former 鈥90s TV passion as a guilty one, count this as total聽justification. (Unless you鈥檙e actually talking about聽Passions,聽because that show was bananas.)

1. Roseanne (1988-1997):聽Every time a聽Roseanne GIF聽comes up on Tumblr, I throw my alleluia emoji hands in the air and praise the TV gods聽that such an accessible series tackled harsh truths. A聽working mother struggling alongside聽her husband to make ends meet, Roseanne and Dan鈥檚 story was super-familiar to anyone hailing from a blue-collar background. Plus, they created a safe space for their kids to come into their own 鈥 like the episode in which聽Darlene feels pressured to be 鈥済irly鈥 and Roseanne tells her to聽be whatever kind of person she wants.

And we know now how important those messages are 鈥 both for parents and for kids maneuvering through adolescence as they try and聽find themselves. Plus, it didn鈥檛 hurt that funny woman Roseanne Barr wrote on all 221 episodes, making her self-titled series groundbreaking for聽female comedians. Check out all nine seasons on Amazon.

2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003):聽On days where life seems way too overwhelming, it helps to remember that if Buffy could slay vampires and graduate high school, you can get through anything.

Buffy鈥檚 ability to do it all is beyond inspiring, especially when you realize a series about a teenage girl saving the world was a controversial network move upon its release in the late 1990s. Not to mention, it鈥檚 a tale as old as time: Buffy, who鈥檚 good, battles monsters, who are not. And like聽Harry Potter or any X-Men or Avenger character, she finds herself doing some massive soul-searching in the wake of who she becomes as she鈥檚 called on to fight evil. Which is why it鈥檚 fine to still want to be her almost two decades later. Pretend you鈥檙e in Buffy鈥檚 Scooby Gang while binging the series on Hulu.

3. The Wonder Years (1988-1993):聽Admittedly, some of us didn鈥檛 clue into聽The Wonder Years until it was well on its way out. But that was fine, since at the time we were hung up on the saga of Kevin and Winnie, two childhood sweethearts who made us believe that love conquered all.

Which it did, but differently. The series ends with (spoiler alert) viewers learning Winnie and Kevin married other people, but that聽they鈥檝e remained the best of friends. Because love isn鈥檛 just dating and marriage, love is friendship and family and a whole lot of other relationships. Good luck getting through an episode as an adult without breaking down and sobbing. Now that we鈥檝e all experienced a thing or two, those 22-minute episodes hit home real quick. Grab a tissue before re-watching Kevin learn life鈥檚 hard lessons on Amazon.

4. My So-Called Life (1994-1995):聽Frankly, Angela Chase had it figured out better as a teen than some of us do IRL. She understood聽that growing up is tough, dating can be brutal, liking the wrong guy can be even worse and that friendship can both help and complicate things.

Arguably,聽My So-Called Life is a prep course for teen and adulthood. Only it鈥檚 a little more messy, since the rest of us don鈥檛 usually have to see our crushes at school. And none are of Jared Leto鈥檚 undeniable heartthrob status. The show was in and out of our lives quickly after just聽one season, but聽thankfully Amazon has it available for streaming.

5. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990-1996):聽It鈥檚 not a 鈥90s-centric list of anything without the mention of Will, the teen who got in trouble in Philly and began his life anew in California. As kids and teens? The show is a dream come true: Will doesn鈥檛 really fit in, his family is equal parts wonderful and hilarious and Carlton dances better than anybody on the planet ever has (or ever will).

But re-watching is even better. Sure, we can catch 鈥済rown-up鈥 jokes we may not have before, and Will鈥檚 charm never gives up, but his journey to begin reconciling why his father left him and who he can become now that he鈥檚 been given another chance isn鈥檛 just super emotional, it鈥檚 downright inspiring. Uncle Phil is a compassionate, kind and important family leader, Hilary is my idol and Carlton is an underdog struggling with his identity. The only thing we need?聽Both聽Aunt Vivs. Well, and also the full series on Amazon.
