Hopping on twitter Kumail opened up can of craziness when he tweeted the following:
Q: what was the 1st TV show you loved, completely? Not cartoons you watched as a kid. I mean, as you got a bit older. Maybe early teens, when you could really start engaging intellectually. For me, Star Trek: TOS. Intellectually, emotionally. Blew me away. The world felt bigger.

So with that being said, completely eliminating cartoons which WHEW!! Glad he did that because I could be here all day listing shows. There were so many great shows in the 90's when I was growing up!
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saved By The Bell, Buffy The Vampire Slayer (yes Buffy lol), Full House, Seinfeld, Dawson's Creek, Beverly Hills 90210 ( I kinda kept up with this one but not really lol), Family Matters, Home Improvement, Clarissa Explains It All (don't act like you didn't watch this show), Sister Sister, Step By Step.
There were so many shows in the 90s that is almost depressing to think about. Especially when you think of TV now!
Here were a few choices people had on twitter!
Uh, non-fiction was Garden Space, a british TV show where the hosts did suprise makeovers of peoples gardens. Fiction, Twilight Zone. Admittedly, I was/am a super weird kid...— Zelda Williams (@zeldawilliams) April 10, 2018
Buffy 😀— Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) April 9, 2018
Also, getting a ton of people saying "Scrubs." So... that should feel good.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) April 9, 2018
Yooooo I forgot about Scrubs!!! Scrubs was a dope show!! Also House M.D. that was a great show, probably one of my favorites of all time! I actually own all of the seasons of House M.D. Being hones though growing up. I do believe Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff got to me first and I was hooked on The Fresh Prince of Be-Air!
I would watch it for the first time and never looked backed. I would watch the re-runs religiously and I don't do re-runs like talking about! So there you have it!
What was yours?
