Blast From The Past: Remembering 12 Of Our Fave Shows
- Gossip Girl
Yes, we miss Gossip Girl even though it has only been 11 months since the show ended. We miss the Upper East Siders, the fashion, scheming, Georgina Sparks, everything! I mean, how can we not miss a series that has practically been a part of our lives for 6 seasons and forever?
- One Tree Hill
This teen drama about love, life, and basketball touched so many lives. It followed the lives of two half-brothers, Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) and Nathan Scott (James Lafferty) who were rivals on and off the basketball court. Throughout its 9 seasons, we witnessed how they evolved from being heartless enemies to caring brothers and through their romances with the female characters.
Some friendships are worth fighting for, it's okay to be who you are, believe in yourself, magic and love–these are just few of the lessons One Tree Hill taught us which we are sure to keep forever.
- Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, Sonny With A Chance
Aired: 2006-2011; 2007-2012; 2009-2011
Thanks to these teen sitcoms for introducing Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato to us! Regardless of what Miley, Selena and Demi have become now (no pun intended!), we will still miss Hannah Montana’s blonde wig, Alex Russo’s almost-always-disastrous magic spells and Sonny Munroe's bubbly personality and her show So Random!
- Jonas L.A.
We just miss seeing the Jonas brothers together. 'Nuff said.
- That’s So Raven
I bet this show would make it to every teenage girl’s favorite Disney sitcom of all time. Raven Baxter’s psychic powers (which often led to disasters!), talent as a fashion designer and her crazy disguising stunts are just some of the things that made us laugh and fall in love with the show.
- The O.C.
The O.C., also known as Orange County, California, is an idyllic paradise, an affluent community where everyone and everything seems to be perfect. But beneath all these is the reality with kids living secret lives from their parents and parents living secret lives from their children.
The show tells the story if Cohen, Cooper and Nichol families and Ryan Atwood, a troubled teenager who later on changed the lives of the residents of The O.C. The show was loved by the audience, however, the ratings declined as it went on. Nothing was able to stop the early cancellation of the show in early 2007, not even the online petition that gained over 700,000 signatures.
Addie Singer, played by young Emma Roberts showed us that whenever words fail to express our feelings, lyrics and music can do the trick! A girl who writes and sings about her life... Addie is a lot like Taylor Swift (only Addie was fictional and in 7th grade), don't you think?
Prue, Piper, Phoebe (and later on their long-lost half sister Paige) were known as the Charmed Ones, the most powerful good witches to ever exist. The sisters’ destiny was to protect innocent lives from evil forces like demons and warlocks while trying to live normally.
- Lizzie McGuire
Lizzie McGuire was a shy and clumsy high school girl who wanted to be popular. Who would forget Lizzie McGuire's clumsiness and animated alterego? The show taught us the value of family, friendship and how to deal with high school life and a naughty younger brother.
- Double Dare, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Global Guts
Aired: 1999-2004; 1999-2007; 1999-2005
If you are a '90s kid, these Nickelodeon game shows must have been your favorite. Back in the days, game shows were far more exciting because they required the contestants to finish challenges involving slimes, obstacle courses, temple, to mention a few.
Dubbed as one of the best, longest-running and most hilarious sitcoms of all time, FRIENDS left a huge cultural impact that still exists today. This show made us wish we have crazy but genuine friends like Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross.
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Sunnydale may not be Mystic Falls, but it sure had a lot of creepy stuff going on, too. Unlike shows and movies with vampires and their love interests being transformed to immortals we see today, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is about a girl who was chosen by fate and brave enough to battle against vampires, demons and other forces of darkness. Our favorite part? Buffy’s romance with none less than the vampire, Angel.
