The 1990s Are Back!

Remember the 1990s? You know, Rugrats, Saved by the Bell, and - gasp - New Kids on the Block? Well ... love 'em or not, get ready: they're baaaack!

Claire Suddath of TIME gets us all ready for the inevitable arrival of the scrunchies:

Recently, the pace of '90s references and revivals has quickened. In May, the New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys reunited; they're currently touring as one giant acronym monstrosity called NKOTBSB. This fall, MTV will restart Beavis and Butt-Head; their music-video show 120 Minutes is already back on the air on MTV2. VH1 is about to reboot Pop-Up Video. And then a few weeks ago, Nickelodeon started airing its "classic" children's television shows like Clarissa Explains It All and All That on its sister station, TeenNick. That made it official: the '90s have been gone long enough that we've decided to bring them back.

I knew I was officially old once '90's nostalgia overtook '80's nostalgia on the web. Oh well, at least I have Fraggle Rock and MacGyver on DVD and my old Walkman still works.

I saw this coming years ago. The 00s were steeped in that 80s nostalgia garbage. It seemed pretty obvious the 90s would get a similar treatment. But nothing culturally definitive about the 90s? Absurd.
