Do you consider yourself a TV series expert or are you recently discovering this world thanks to streaming services?
Either way, there are series that your watch list can’t miss!
Here are 5 revolutionary masterpieces of the ’90s you must catch up on!
6 seasons revolving around the family of Tony Soprano, an Italian-American mob boss in New Jersey.
Winner of all sorts of TV awards and one of the most expensive TV series made in that era.
It’s a raw and realistic show that recounts topics not easily found on the small screen at the time and stands out for the quality of its storytelling and acting performances.
“Those who want respect, give respect.”– Tony Soprano, The Sopranos.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Considered the founder of a new genre, Buffy is based on a groundbreaking idea: where all horror movies depict the young blonde woman as the dumbest character and usually the first to succumb to the villain this show chooses as the protagonist that same blonde woman and makes her super strong and quick-witted.
Buffy Summers is the Chosen One, the only person on earth who has the power to fight against the forces of evil.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer has everything: a consistent plot that remains interesting for 7 seasons, action scenes, moving moments, love stories and convincing villains.
P.S. if you are enchanted and want more you can take a look at its spin-off Angel.
“If the apocalypse comes… beep me!”– Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The mother of sitcoms that must be watched if only to better understand all the subsequent ones.
It has the merit of being based on a super simple but effective idea: it’s set in that period of your life when your friends become your family.
Friends has a kind of humour that is never vulgar and still works very well today.
One of the most-watched TV shows of all time with 10 seasons and a perfect ending.
“They don’t know that we know they know we know.”– Phoebe Buffay, Friends.
Sex and the City
A forward-looking tv series: finally a show starring a group of women in their thirties and forties portrayed in every aspect of their lives, including work and sex.
Sex and the City is a funny and intelligent show that talks about friendship, work and love in a frank way that does not crucify single women but emphasizes how you can live a fulfilling life without getting married. Love and satisfaction can come in many forms and this show is here as a reminder for all.
“The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you that you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”– Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City.
Born at the start of the ’90s, Twin Peaks changed the way to make television shows forever: it was the first TV series in the modern sense.
It is often overlooked by new generations as it’s considered difficult to understand and digest but it is much more approachable than you might think.
Thanks to the genius who conceived it, Twin Peaks is truly unique: Mr David Lynch has created a world that still has one of the most active fandoms ever. A world which is so immersive and well constructed that has become iconic and immortal.
The show initially seems to revolve around the investigation of the murder of Laura Palmer, a beautiful young lady found wrapped in layers of plastic in the seemingly quiet town of Twin Peaks but believe me when I tell you that this is just the tip of the iceberg.
“There’s a sort of evil out there.”– Sheriff Truman, Twin Peaks.
