The 1990s; the era where the Grunge subculture exploded, the era of spreading capitalism and the era of some of the greatest comedy series ever made. I’m a 90s kid so that I may be biased, but sitcoms and comedy TV series of the 90s were more funny and durable than the ones that are produced these days.
We all still go back to the comedy TV series created in the 90s when we are bored because deep down we know the truth..lol.
If you are looking for something funny to watch on those boring, rainy or snowy days, here are some of my favorite funniest TV series from the 90s:
It was aired from September 1994 – May 2004. It follows the lives of six awkward, reckless friends that lived in Manhattan. They were funny, witty, and dated each other at some point. They basically lived life, and they showed us that getting out of the friend zone is possible.
