18 TV Shows From The 1990s That Millennials STILL Binge On

18 TV Shows From The 1990s That Millennials STILL Binge On

Cory and Topanga are the only relationship goals I know.

The 90's had some of the best shows ever. I remember waking up early in the morning on a Saturday or staying up late on a school night just to watch some of them. Now between Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon's Fire Stick, I can sit down all day watching any of the shows listed below.

1. "Sabrina the Teenage Witch"

This is where the stereotype of a witch having a black cat came from.

2. "Sister, Sister"

There making a revival of this, so I think everyone going to be rewatching this show pretty soon.

3. "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"

"Now this is the story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down."

4. "Boy Meets World"

Cory and Topanga are the only relationship goals I know.

5. "Friends"

I am currently watching this show and it's hilarious. Now I know what all the hype is about.

6. "Saved By The Bell"

Sometimes I wished I could freeze in time like Zach so I didn't have to talk to anyone.

7. "Roseanne"

8. "Full House"

Uncle Jesse was everyone's first crush.

9. "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"

Buffy is the definition of bada**.

10. "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"

It's the longest show running on television; you have to watch it sooner or later.

11. "Martin"

12. "Beverly Hills, 90210"

Wishing I went to West Bev was always a dream of mine.

13. "Family Matters"

"Did I do thaaat", everyone needs a Steve Urekal in their life.

14. "Rugrats"

Those orange VHS tapes were life.

15. "The Powderpuff Girls"

16. "Melrose Place"

If you've watched "Beverly Hills, 90210", you've watched this too.

17. "Sex and the City"

18. "Golden Girls"

This show technically started in the 1980s, but it ended in the 1990s, so it still counts.

31 Reasons Why I Would NEVER Watch Season 2 Of '13 Reasons Why'

It does not effectively address mental illness, which is a major factor in suicide.

When I first started watching "13 Reasons Why" I was excited. I had struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts for a long time and thought this show would be bringing light to those issues. Instead, it triggered my feelings that I had suppressed.

With season two coming out soon, I have made up my mind that I am NEVER watching it, and here is why:

1. This show simplifies suicide as being a result of bullying, sexual assault, etc. when the issue is extremely more complex.

2. It does not effectively address mental illness, which is a major factor in suicide.

3. The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention has guidelines on how to portray suicides in TV shows and movies without causing more suicides.

"13 Reasons Why" disregarded those guidelines by graphically showing Hannah slitting her wrists.

4. It is triggering to those who have tried to commit suicide in the past or that struggle with mental illness.

5. It glorifies suicide.

6. It does not offer healthy coping solutions with trauma and bullying.

The only "solution" offered is suicide, which as mentioned above, is glorified by the show.

7. This show portrays Hannah as dramatic and attention-seeking, which creates the stereotype that people with suicidal thoughts are dramatic and seeking attention.

8. Hannah makes Clay and other people feel guilty for her death, which is inconsiderate and rude and NOT something most people who commit suicide would actually do.

9. This show treats suicide as revenge.

In reality, suicide is the feeling of hopelessness and depression, and it's a personal decision.

10. Hannah blames everyone but herself for her death, but suicide is a choice made by people who commit it.

Yes, sexual assault and bullying can be a factor in suicidal thoughts, but committing suicide is completely in the hands of the individual.

11. Skye justifies self-harm by saying, "It's what you do instead of killing yourself."

12. Hannah's school counselor disregards the clear signs of her being suicidal, which is against the law and not something any professional would do.

13. The show is not realistic.

14. To be honest, I didn't even enjoy the acting.

15. The characters are underdeveloped.

16. "13 Reasons Why" alludes that Clay's love could have saved Hannah, which is also unrealistic.

17. There are unnecessary plot lines that don't even advance the main plot.

18. No one in the show deals with their problems.

They all push them off onto other people (which, by the way, is NOT HEALTHY!!!).

19. There is not at any point in the show encouragement that life after high school is better.

20. I find the show offensive to not only me, but also to everyone who has struggled with suicidal thoughts.

21. The show is gory and violent, and I don't like that kind of thing.

22. By watching the show, you basically get a step-by-step guide on how to commit suicide.

Which, again, is against guidelines set by The American Foundation of Suicide Prevention.

23. The show offers no resources for those who have similar issues to Hannah.

24. It is not healthy for me or anyone else to watch "13 Reasons Why."

25. Not only does the show glorify suicide, but it also glorifies self-harm as an alternative to suicide.

26. Other characters don't help Hannah when she reaches out to them, which could discourage viewers from reaching out.

27. Hannah doesn't leave a tape for her parents, and even though the tapes were mostly bad, I still think the show's writers should have included a goodbye to her parents.

28. It simplifies suicide.

29. The show is tactless, in my opinion.

30. I feel like the show writers did not do any research on the topic of suicide or mental illness, and "13 Reasons Why" suffered because of lack of research.

31. I will not be watching season two mostly because I am bitter about the tastelessness.

And I do not want there to be enough views for them to make a season three and impact even more people in a negative way.

If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255.

7 "Bachelorette" Premiere Party Essentials

Are you ready for "The Bachelorette" premiere on May 28th?

"The Bachelorette" is premiering on Monday May 28th! Are you ready? Here are some ideas for the coolest premiere party ever with your best girl friends.

1. Fangirl over Becca and how awesome she is.

Becca is such an awesome person. She was a favorite from the beginning of Arie's season and it is clear why she made it all the way to the final 2. She is strong and independent as well as beautiful. Becca's not about all the crazy drama that some women bring to the "Bachelor"; she just wants to find her true love. And we're all rooting for her to do just that this coming season!

2. Rewatch Arie's breakup with Becca.

Most people agree that Arie's breakup with Becca was pretty tasteless. As a result, he has lost a lot of his credibility as a handome and wanted bachelor. Nevertheless, no matter how hard it was to watch Arie and Becca's breakup, Becca's strength is what stands out in the encounter. Arie broke her heart, but she was able to stand strong just a short time later at the finale episode and discuss her relationship with him. She was ready to move on to find her real true love--something the producers were happy to give her.

3. Research the eligible bachelors.

Check out the fabulous eligible bachelors that will vie for Becca's hand this season. If you ask me, there are some really cute ones too! Who needs Arie?!

4. Gather your favorite girls for a viewing party.

Get all your best friends over for a viewing party! You can prepare for a fabulous season by doing #1-3 together! Get dressed in your comfy pajamas or maybe get dressed up in your cutest little black dress to make it a classy evening. Time for some bonding time with your favorite ladies!

5. Get your viewing party snacks.

No viewing party is ready without some epic snacks. You can make some pretty good "Bachelorette" themed goodies for your night. You can make a heart-shaped pizza to share. Perhaps bake some red velvet cupcakes with roses? Top it off some drinks of rosé to fit with the theme.

6. Vote and discuss your favorite eligible men.

After the episode is over, take a vote amongst yourselves as to who you think will be in Becca's top 3. Who has the most potential versus who do you think is going home in the next episode? Who do you like the most? Who do you think will be this season's villain? Only time will tell.

7. Prepare for next week.

Even before this episode is over, make plans for the episode next week! You've got a whole season to look forward to, and this is just the start!

Get ready for the best "Bachelorette" season yet! We love Becca!
