If you grew up in the 90s and 2000s — television practically raised you. Many would call that time the Golden Era of TV. Some of the greatest sitcoms, dramas and kids shows were created during that period, and shaped the way many of us live our adult lives today.
Admit it, Living Single made you want to rent an apartment in New York with your best friends and work as a Magazine Editor. And Moesha inspired many of us to start a diary and go to college.
Everything seemed so simple and easy on television. Then you grow up to discover that things are absolutely nothing like we imagined and hoped it’d be. Just imagine how one kid felt to discover that James Corden isn’t actually driving on Carpool Karaoke.
All in all, the Golden Era of television has greatly shaped the way we live and move today. But most of it was cap!
