I just had a flashback of this. "Clarissa Explains It All". If you're a child of the 90s, you know what's up. And don't lie and say you didn't watch this cause you did. We all did. At the time I thought it was the best thing on television. The sitcom was your standard dysfunctional family projected through the eyes of a teenager. But reflecting back I kind of realize how weird and cray this show really was. There were some sketch things that went on in that house.You have Clarissa who's this offbeat tween narrating her angst-hood to some camera (wo)man who we never see. That creep dude who always appeared stoned and just climbed up a ladder through her bedroom window whenever he felt like it. And her fed-ex + ginger + genius of a little brother whom I honestly suspected had some weird incestuous type crush on Clarissa. Oh and her relatively normal parents, who really served no purpose on the show. Good stuff. Bring it back Nickelodeon, bring it back. And while you're at it roll out that big orange couch and bring SNICK back. I kind of feel bad for future generations. All they'll probably have to watch is season 55 of the Jersey Shore. Sucks to be you Generation Jerz.

How could you forget this annoyingly contagious theme song? CLASSIC.
