Uber 90's Show
13 January 2008 | by morgan831See all my reviews

The main thing I remember about this show is all the references to popular 90's bands. In one scene, the younger sister blackmails the older sister into letting her wear her Nine Inch Nails t-shirt, and another scene has the step dad (trying to be cool) referring to REM as 'rim'. Another episode I remember had Gaby's character making a tape of herself singing for the boy she likes. Through some unfortunate circumstances, the tape gets played on the loudspeaker at the local skating rink when all her fellow students are present. This kind of unrealistic embarrassment comedy was indicative of 90's sitcoms (except Seinfeld and the Simpson's) Can't remember if I liked it or not, I was only 11 or 12.
