That ’70s Show, 1998-2006
As far as the decades go for this show, it’s a little confusing (but we love it anyway). That ’70s Show takes place from 1976-1979, but was filmed in the late ’90s. So it’s a ’90s and ’70s show?

Freaks and Geeks, 1999-2000
Although this show only had one season, it was a great one! Freaks and Geeks helped actors like James Franco, Seth Rogan, and Jason Segel start their acting careers. The show follows a brother and sister who attend the same high school, but have completely different friends and are on different ends of the social spectrum (hence freaks and geeks). Many people wish the show would’ve continued, but at least you can still enjoy their one and only season on Netflix!
