Full House Is Back? The 90’s Shows We Are Dying To See Again
Proof that dreams really do come true, 90’s ABC favorite Full House may very well be coming back for a reboot. Members of the Full House family who are already on board include: John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), Dave Coulier (Joey), Bob Saget (Danny), Andrea Barber (Kimmie), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), and Candice Cameron (DJ). No word yet from the Olsen twins (though it is doubtful they would have time in between being full time fashion designers and living legends) or Lori Loughlin (though when questioned she replied something akin to “It is better to leave those shows as they were”). Whether this comes to fruition or not remains to be seen but we children of the 90’s can’t help but be totally stoked for this sort of throwback. Here are a few other shows that we would like to see revived.
Saved By The Bell
The Lifetime movie/ documentary/ behind the scenes feature may ruin some of our starry eyed recollections of the beloved show, but we fans of the original would still like to see some reunion stories. What would Kelly and Zack be like as parents? What would Jessie Spano think of Miley Cyrus? Is Richard Belding still a principal?
Clarissa Explains it All
Before being a feminist was all the rage, Clarissa was the first adolescent television show to feature a female lead on Nickelodeon. Clarissa was essentially a normal teenage girl but with a sassy side that would do well with todays yet more liberated audience. Maybe we could bring back Melissa Joan Hart as the new Clarissa’s mother…
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Will Smith was already a rapper by the time he was signed on to play a fictionalized version of himself in Fresh Prince. And let’s be honest, Will is still just as cool today (proof is in his ALS ice bucket challenge video). Let’s bring this back and see what shenanigans his kids get up to in Bel Air… not that we don’t already see a few those ending up on Page 6.
Freaks & Geeks
Let’s be honest here, we were robbed when that show only lasted one season. What other television show of the time featured non-judgemental use of drugs, alcohol and sneaking around the parents back to check out sick rock concerts? Was there even a lesson to be learned from this show? If there was, it would probably have been, have fun, be cool and try new things. These are lessons that could absolutely be applied to today.
