5 Shows Airing On Hulu That Will Bring Back Some Major Nostalgia

Streaming networks such as Hulu can bring us back to a time where we all had small, brick TV's and some teenage drama to watch unfold, making it easy to bring back that nostalgia.


Whether you enjoyed the juicy gossip or thought-provoking life lessons that shows from the 90's contained, going back to watch them now can bring back A LOT of nostalgia. Since most of these shows are no longer airing on cable, Hulu has provided us with several that will make you grab your box TV and travel back to the decade of turtlenecks and high-waisted pants. Here are some of my personal favorites.

1. “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” (1996-2003). 


For the young witch, Sabrina Spellman is unsure of the does and don'ts when it comes to her powers. The awkward yet lovable teenager deals with the same problems that we all do, but with a magical twist. Her two aunts, Hilda and Zelda, teach Sabrina about her magic and magical ancestry, making this show an interesting twist on the life of a "typical" 16-year-old.

2. “Saved By The Bell” (1989-1993).

Centered around a group of high school kids and their day to day lives, this show had its many comedic moments while also focusing on social issues. In the 90's, teens and their real-life problems was a hot topic, and this show definitely brought up issues that any show nowadays don't even touch, such as drug use, women's rights, death, and the environment. Not focusing on one sole character, this show presented eight that each showcased their own personalities and social dynamics between each other—winning the hearts of many for its down-to-earth content.

3. “Rugrats” (1991-2004).

Watching cartoon babies go on adventures was one that 90's kids enjoyed on a daily basis because seeing the world from a baby's perspective gave us a whole new look on life. From the clueless adults to imaginative, small babies in a big world, this show was comedic and gives a different view on life in the form of animation.

4. “Hey Arnold!” (1996-2004).

This animated classic focused on a young fourth-grader named Arnold, who lives with his grandparents and goes to school with some interesting characters. As the 90's is known for, this show included real-life issues such as bullying in school and friendships. Arnold faces life alongside his best friend Gerald, and together they experience the life of the big city.

5. “My So-Called Life” (1994-1995).

This short-lived show was set around (yet again) teenage drama in high school. Having been praised for the accurate portrayal of adolescence, this show centered around a teen girl, Angela, and the struggles that life has to offer of those in her social circle. Instead of the typical presentation of a problem and solution at the end of an episode, this show's issues continued throughout the series and was included as the show progressed. The raw truth about high school teenagers is one thing that this show offers that no other teen drama has been brave enough to include, making is one for the books.

Nostalgia can be found in an endless list of shows that each and every person grew up watching, either every morning or late at night. These are just some of the thought-provoking shows of the 90's that you can still watch today, thanks to the wonderful streaming service that is Hulu. So sit back, grab some snacks and enjoy your childhood all over again.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
