ABC surely took advantage (in a good way) of these identical twin rising stars and created a show that followed the two who discovered the existence of the other at the age of 14. Tia Mowry and Tamera Mowry play the reunited twins and starred together through the entire six seasons.
In reality, the two Mowry sisters convinced their parents to move and live in Califonia when they were barely 12 years old. They believed that moving there would be their entrance ticket to the showbiz industry. Eventually, the twins were seen on the set of “Full House” which led to the creation of “Sister Sister”.
Melrose Place Had Backstage Drama Affect the Show
Back in the early 1990s, it didn't matter if you were a teen or a teen's parent you watched the same show. These were the days before everyone had satellite and Netflix — whatever was on, was on. "Melrose Place" was the soap opera of the day which ran for seven seasons and was about young (good-looking) adults living in an apartment complex on the outskirts of Beverly Hills. It's considered a spinoff of "Beverly Hills 90010", but wasn't as successful.
In real life, most stars of the show dated one another which turned their personal life into a daytime drama. The show eventually ended as the characters had to move on. How long do you think people can stay single and happy in a Californian apartment complex?
Step by Step or Song by Song?
What could be better than the story of "Step by Step"? Two single-parent families get together and form one big happy family with six kids. Three from his side and three from hers. Patrick Duffy (who we adore from the good old "Dallas" days) starred alongside Suzanne Somers who was no stranger to the sitcom world.
The show's theme song "Second Time Around" was written by Jesse Frederick who is also responsible for the songs of "Full House", "Perfect Strangers" and "Family Matters". All these shows seem to share the same DNA. They all have the same song composer and all are engraved in our minds. "Step by Step" is the only sitcom never to be released on DVD so if you want to catch up on nostalgia, you'll have to seek elsewhere.
Clueless Didn't Give a Hoot About Timelines
"Clueless" the TV show is based on a 1995 movie sharing the same title. Both are inspired by the 19th-century novel named "Emma". The show covers all teen-related issues such as relationships, school, parents, and social ranking. The TV show is not identical to the iconic movie and there are some noticeable differences between the two.
The first few episodes of the show weren't broadcasted in order and the pilot episode that was supposed to be launched first was screened three months later. This didn't interrupt the show's success and we don't think anyone ever noticed.
My So-Called Life Was So-Called Meh
This was one of the least successful shows at the time as it was broadcasted for less than a year and with only one season. Despite all that, the show won a few award nominations. We're not sure why amongst the viewers it didn't do so well but amongst the professionals, it was a ball.
Claire Danes played the leading role, however, Alicia Silverstone read for the part too. Danes was just 14 years old at the time and experienced her first kiss in life.....on set. One thing is for sure, she will never forget this show no matter har far away from home she is.
