About This Quiz

The 1990s gave us some truly memorable television shows. Some of them followed up on the ground broken by Steven Bochco in the 1980s. Without his "L.A. Law" and "Hill Street Blues," there wouldn't be an "NYPD Blue" (also by Bochco and his partner, David Milch), nor "Homicide: Life on the Street." Other shows capitalized on everyone's anxiety about the approach of the year 2000. These included "The X-Files" and the aptly-named "Millennium."

But if you wanted lighter fare, well, there was plenty of that -- probably with a teenage cast. Teenagers were network gold in the 1990s. Consider the success of "Saved by the Bell," "Blossom," "The Wonder Years," and "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Of course, not all youth-themed shows were light-hearted. "My So-Called Life" dealt with the difficulties of being a teenager (and also introduced a 13-year-old acting prodigy named Claire Danes to the world). "Party of Five" was about four young people (the baby made "Five") struggling to keep their family together after their parents' death in a car crash (kind of like a coed version of the Curtis brothers from "The Outsiders.")
