Memories Of Horrible 90’s TV Shows


I’ve spent the better part of my life taking part in America’s past time. No, not baseball. I’m talking about TELEVISION. Since as far back as I can remember I’ve watched so many TV show whether they were good or bad. From Airwolf to Magnum P.I. and everything in between I’ve seen A LOT. The 90’s has TV that really took the cake as far as bad shows go and we’re gonna take a little trip down memory lane just to let you all realize how much things have changed (and in some cases hasn’t).



A brilliant, wheelchair-bound scientist invents a form of exo-skeleton called the Mechanically Augmented Neuro Transmitter Interception System (M.A.N.T.I.S.) that turns him into a superhero and gives him the ability to fight the crime wave that is engulfing his city.
It didn’t last very long.

Baywatch Nights

Baywatch spin-off, Mitch Buchannon, the reliable lieutenant in charge of an LA county beach’s lifeguards, moonlights -often literally, at night, hence the title- as a private detective, who investigates and solves various crimes, often in some way related to his beloved beach and/or the ocean.
I’m leaving you all with an episode from the second season (Yes, there was actually more than one season).

Thunder In Paradise

Randolph Spencer and Martin Brubaker were ex-Navy SEALS-turned-mercenaries who hired themselves out as soldiers of fortune for a very high fee. On their missions, Spence and Bru relied heavily on Thunder, which was a souped-up, gadget-ridden speedboat originally built by Spence for the U.S. Government
I actually liked this show growing up but completely didn’t realize that it only was on for 1 season. I guess I didn’t notice I was watching the same episodes over and over. Kind of say a lot about the show…haha!

Knight Rider 2010 (1994)

Loosely based on the popular television series of the 80’s, this movie is about a young loner on a crusade. Because of his circumstance, he creates a special car out of an old Fold Mustang. The “interface” on the car allows the spirit of a young girl to reside in the car and help him.
The word LOOSELY is an understatement. The only thing that was the same was the name. This show was a part of the Universal Action Pack that had MANY other cheesy shows that were broadcast. I dare you to look it up.


After crooked cop Lieutenant “Dutch” Dixon kills his girlfriend and frames him for murder, Reno Raines escapes from jail and goes on the run. Teaming up with Bobby Sixkiller and Cheyenne Phillips, Reno works as a bounty hunter while searching for the only man who can clear his name.
There was so much cheese in this show that you could spread it on a cracker. All it was meant for was to appeal to the housewives….which I’m sure it worked.

The Love Boat: The Next Wave

Retired Navy commander Jim Kennedy is divorced and has a teenage son. He takes over the famous cruise ship, where he and his crew tackle various scenarios with different passengers every week.
The question is: What possessed a network to greenlight this show? This boat should’ve stayed docked. (See what I did there?)

Let this be a lesson to us all. When we complain that there isn’t anything to watch on TV…… glad that we aren’t plagued with these shows anymore. Well Renegade is probably lurking somewhere in a dark place in the TV listings. Be afraid.
