    Nostalgia binge-watching doesn't have to be a dull pastime. You can mix it up with a fun drinking game. Take a shot whenever you see an honest-to-god, not-yet movie star in a bit part as a moody seventh grader. Or a blockbuster king show up in a Disney Channel show just long enough that you know his mom really bragged about it at Thanksgiving. Or Chris Pratt just being Chris Pratt on a show you totally forgot Chris Pratt was even on.

    Few actors kick off their careers in star-making roles. Even Jennifer Lawrence was once a lowly mascot on Monk. Seeing the bad haircuts and embarrassing outfits can be fun. But it's also kind of reassuring to realize that where your career is now can be so different from where it will be in 10 years.

    Mila Kunis on 7th Heaven (1996-1997)
    Kunis had moved beyond Lisa Frank ads to play the middle school mean girl, an age-old type instantly recognizable to any woman who's had to deal with pre-teen politics. Though she starts out as Lucy's friend, she morphs into a boyfriend-stealer when she goes out with Jimmy Moon (who, for any fair-weather 7th Heaven fan who dropped out before the later seasons, grows up to get Lucy out of jury duty when she's assigned to his trial).

    Jennifer Love Hewitt on Boy Meets World (1998)
    The response to a stranger greeting you with a passionate kiss is rarely "you're friendly," but that's an issue for another slideshow. Hewitt is another victim of the creepy killer in BMW's slasher flick send-up episode.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt on That '70s Show (1998)
    Gordon-Levitt is just so adorable here highlighting the ridiculousness of gay panic as one of Eric's few friends outside the haze of the basement circle.

    Britney Spears on Sabrina the Teenage Witch (1999)
    Don't stress if you forgot this cameo. Britney loves popping up on sitcoms. Other '90s shows she appeared on include The Famous Jett Jackson and Kenan & Kel.
