"My sister and I begged my parents and they bought a tiny black-and-white TV that was portable/plugged into our minivan's outlet (cigarette lighter...circa 1997), so we didn't miss Sabrina the Teenage Witch or Boy Meets World. We used to drive an hour to have Friday dinners with my grandma — but we definitely couldn't miss Sabrina and Salem."
— Kate Garcia, Brand Executive
"My sister and I are grown-ass women, both of whom now have kids of our own, and yet we still get each other's attention at family events by shouting 'FEENEH! FEE-EE-EENEH!' across the room."
— Amelia Edelman, Content Editor
The Family That Watches Together...
"I don't think my family ever missed a T.G.I.F. lineup in the '90s. One of the specific memories I have is of my sister and I watching Perfect Strangers and teaching ourselves how to do Larry and Balki's happy dance. She's older and would always pick me up at the end, but as we grew up, it switched and I would pick her up...my sister's very petite!"
— Gina Marinelli, Fashion Editor, Brand Experiences
Do Not Disturb The Fan
"Fridays were my day with my grandmother. She'd pick me up from school or summer camp and I'd go shopping with her or sometimes with my cousins, but we were promptly home by seven, so we could cook dinner and be ready to watch shows at eight. I'd sit in my grandma's basement and wouldn't move for anything (except during the breaks). It was a running joke that no one could bother Reba (what my grandmother called me) during her Friday night stories. Sabrina, Hanging with Mr. Cooper, Boy Meets World, and Step by Step were my favorites."
