3 of the best '90s sitcoms to download on iTunes
Sometimes one of the best forms of escapism is to curl up on the sofa with a nice cup of hot cocoa or glass of wine and watch a television sitcom. They are light, funny and can boost your mood. The decade that produced some of the very best sitcoms was the 1990s, and although most '90s shows have since concluded they can still be enjoyed time and time again thanks to the internet. A number of '90s sitcoms can now be purchased and downloaded on both iTunes and Amazon. And of course, if you're more old school, they can be found in DVD or Blu-ray format on Amazon, too.
One amazing way to make some extra change to purchase your favorite shows is by signing up with Opinion Outpost. Members can take a number of surveys online from the comfort of their homes, and get paid in the process - either in cash or Amazon and iTunes gift cards!
Once you've signed up with Opinion Outpost and start making that extra money it's time to make a decision - which beloved sitcom do you buy first? Well don't sweat it, here's a list of three of the best.
1. 'Friends' (1994-2004)
One of the most popular sitcoms of all time, "Friends" ran for 10 seasons and followed the lives of six young professionals living in New York City: Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Ross and Joey. Warm, lighthearted and yet still painfully funny, "Friends" attracted critical praise, capturing the zeitgeist of a generation in the process. The show's success was reflected in its award show triumphs - according to IMDB the sitcom earned 211 award nominations and won 69, including a Primetime Emmy Award in 2002.
2. 'Frasier' (1993-2004)
Let's face it, few spin-off shows are ever really successful (remember "Friends" spin-off "Joey"? ... thought not). "Cheers" spin-off "Frasier" broke the mold, however. Witty, dry and always funny, "Frasier" is regarded as one of the most intelligent sitcoms to ever appear on television. Starring veteran actor Kelsey Grammar in the title role, the comedy followed the life of uptight and pompous psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane, as well as his close knit circle of family and friends - including his neurotic brother Niles, played masterfully by David Hyde Pierce. If you're looking for a show that will make you both laugh and think, "Frasier" is the perfect choice.
3. 'Roseanne' (1988-1997)
This show technically started in the late 1980s, but it ran through 1997, making it firmly a '90s favorite. "Roseanne" starred comedian Roseanne Barr in the titular role, and followed a close-knit, blue-collar family living in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The show was unique in the sense that it was one of the first sitcoms to focus exclusively on the trials and tribulations of a working class family. Warm, hilarious and oftentimes controversial, in addition to providing laughs Roseanne also tackled subjects that were taboo at the time on American television - underage sex, homosexuality and adultery, to name just a few, the BBC explained. Perhaps what resonated with viewers the most, alongside the astute humor, was the frank portrayal of everyday life. Indeed, "Roseanne" was relatable to so many audiences, cementing its status as one of the best '90s sitcoms of all time.
