Looking at them, then, Tomer. .

I heard that at every graduation party I went to that year (except my own, hehe).
LOL, no haven't listened to that station, but I do remember dancing to that song at my school's sixth grade winter dance back in '96 (yikes, that was 8 years ago already?). . They also played it at our prom last year, too. . That dance certainly was all the rage there for a while. I even remember watching "Mad About You" and seeing Paul and Jamie doing that dance.

Haha, didn't some political figure or someone have their own version of that dance? They called it the "_____erena" (the ____ part being where they inserted their name)?

I've only seen 1990 so far, but I loved the Pretty Woman jokes.

"Yeah, you don't want to kiss on the mouth cause then you might fall in love with them!!"

Otherwise, it does feel kind of lame they're doing the 90's already--but it's fun to see some of the stuff from early on in the decade.

I think once we hit teenybopper pop I'll be a lost cause and not watch anymore. Also, Y2K will be fun to revisit, four years later.

Seriously, next year it'll be the 5th anniversary of the new millenium! Can't wait for "I Love The '00's!"

It may been a little too early to do the 90s, but some of it is funny.

Barney, Free Willy, and tonight the Spice Girls are all too painful to watch though

Oh, lord...tonight they're talking about the dance songs of '96...geez, I remember hearing "Missing" all the time on the local radio station in my old town.

Tickle-Me-Elmo-haha, my little second-cousin had one of those. .

The 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993 shows were all fun. I loved that they had practically a 5-minute segment on The X-Files, my favorite show of all time, at the end of the 1993 show! But I turned it off 10 minutes into the 1994 show because I was so bored. Could it be there's a 10-year window on nostalgia?

. Ditto that.

A couple of things I just thought of tonight that I'm rather surprised have not been mentioned throughout this week's shows so far-"Friends" and "Seinfeld". I thought for sure those two shows would be mentioned-they were two of the most popular shows of the 90s (heck, probably of all time, too), after all.

I can't wait to see The X-Files one. (I have them taped and havent gotten to sit and watch t.v. this week!)

As X-Files Magazine's Scully lookalike, I should have been on it.

I've been sick all week with strep throat and all the fun shit that goes along with it, so the only thing I've been able to do is watch TV. Basic cable TV. Meaning that I have seen these episodes a few more times than I'd like to say.

The Snapple Lady (who, by the way, I didn't even think was that big of a deal in the 90s or ever) said on one of the shows that they're doing a whole separate round called I Love the 90s Part Deux. So, maybe then they'll cover Friends, Seinfeld, and Achtung Baby.

The '99 show just seems silly to me. They mention Fight Club as if it were a 70s flick. I had just seen it for the first time a few weeks ago!

Am I old? Or young? What am I supposed to feel?! Stupid VH1.

Today I was thinking about how VH1 stands for Video Hits 1. They and MTV should really change their names because neither one of these channels is about music or videos anymore. VH1 especially should just call themselves "Crappy Pop Culture and Lots of Pointless Countdowns Television" or something. These I Love the Whatevers shows are kinda fun, yeah, but I'm sad that VH1 can't think of anything better (i.e., music related) to do with their channel.

You're right Heartland Girl. and Keocmb I've been laid up after having knee surgery and have watched alot of this and haven't seen anything on U2 except the background music mentioned earlier. Matter of fact they don't mention any music other than hip hop and the dance music of the year they are talking about. It's lame for sure. I didn't watch half the crap, in the 90's they talk about anyway. Didn't expect anything different from VH1. If it isn't Brittney or Jessica Simpson, the're at a loss of what to put on. Needless to say I've been reading alot.

They also play "Mysterious Ways" during a bit about JK Rowling, the author the Harry Potter books.

I was dissappointed about there not being any mention of ZooTV, Achtung Baby, not even Popmart, albeit not one of U2's best moments.

The one part that kept cracking me up, which is probably not something I should laugh at, was where they'd show that clip of Ice Cube yelling, "you gotta problem!" then shooting someone with a gun, during different people's comments.
