I got this book when I was a kid and nobody can convince me all of these people (and animals) aren't best friends so don't even try.
  1. Full House's DJ & Kimmy
    663351 69b1b42d a70f 4465 9389 d2f94e3729fb
    Always wanted to see Full House from the POV of the Giblers. Everyone threw mad shade at the Giblers for being eccentric. Here's an exercise, describe the living situation going on in the Tanner household to someone who has never seen the show. "There's this widowed guy with three kids but he can't really take care of them so he brings a wannabe standup comic and a wannabe rocker to help. Every year they convert some part of their house: attic, basement, garage." The Tanners are a nightmare.
  2. Boy Meets World's Cory & Shawn
    663361 81a12220 80d7 4a0e b525 a7e2d351d368
    It's really hard to watch Boy Meets World after you see the movie Cruising because Corey's dad, William Russ is in both and I can't think of Cruising without picturing a guy in a Leatherman outfit rubbing Vaseline from his fist to elbow. So if you don't want Alan Matthews and the Girl Meets World spinoff ruined, then don't let your young kids watch Cruising.
  3. Seaquest's Lucas & Darwin
    663371 014d9359 249a 4e56 a6ab 54312b1c3abd
    When Steve Hawking finally completes his Unified Theory of Everything I hope there is a chapter that covers how Roy Scheider's best movie has his worst enemy being a shark and his best tv show has his bff being a dolphin. Also, Jonathan Brandis was the best. He did Twelfth Night but with soccer and Rodney Dangerfield and made a very young me feel like it was totally cool to wear boys or girls clothes in pursuit to win a sports championship or whenever really.
  4. California Dreams' Tiffani & Tony
    671331 454bc70e 1f6c 41be 9018 af8b8b4786dd
    I get it that Tiffani and Tony are the only original band mates but Sly was also there from the beginning and if you think there's any way I can talk about California Dreams without Sly's scheming or the cool rock-God that is Jake Sommers than you are not a surf-dude with attitude. Jake Sommers is cooler than Zack Morris and Fonzie put together. For the rest of my life I just want to wear a white t-shirt, leather jacket, and ripped acid wash jeans like my hero, Jake Sommers.
  5. Blossom's Blossom & Six
    671351 b792c0cd f988 46ea a56f 49fb048a9c49
    Jenny Von Oy has the greatest name of all time. How did we get through this many years without Diablo Cody dropping it into a line of dialogue? Don't tell me you can't see Juno saying something like "Jenna Von Oy Vey, I'm pregnant by Pauly Bleeker." The only person who is close to best name is Elle Delle Donne but she plays basketball and wasn't on Blossom. The time Joey went to Paris on Blossom was the first time I've ever seen Paris. I've still never been but I'll never forget his trip.
  6. D2: The Mighty Ducks Charlie & Luis
    671381 53cf3779 c2a1 4b02 8aa5 296175ce9afb
    If I were to have a spirit animal and I'm not saying that I do, it would be a mighty duck named Goldberg. Charlie Conway is a good kid, a little boring, but clutch and I respect that. Obviously Josh Jackson turned out to be the man but draft day back in '92, my first pick is Goldberg every time. The best of the best of the best. D2 should be a film everyone studies about how to make proper additions for a sequel. You lose little Pete but you add in a Kenan and figure skater Ken Wu. Great GMing.
  7. Family Matters' Urkel & Laura
    671401 eda2bb4f ccbe 4da5 b931 fa37e37d804b
    The only thing I ever want to talk about with Family Matters is Waldo Geraldo Faldo. This is an all-time great character arc. He started out as a bully tormenting Eddie. Then he made the transition to Eddie's sidekick and the best deliverer of the dummy punchline on TGIF. Yea, I'm putting him over Cody from Step-By-Step in dumb guy comic relief ability. Waldo dated Maxine and when Urkel's catchphrases got too tired, he carried the torch with "No prob Bob." Long live Waldo, a forgotten hero.
  8. Saved By The Bell's Lindsay & Megan
    671421 713419cf efdb 4cc0 bbb8 e0bd68e970b5
    I had a huge crush on Lindsay from Saved By The Bell: The New Class but it was super annoying because she was always kind of, sort of dating Tommy D. The producers were trying to push Tommy D so hard on the world and he just couldn't get over. They wanted him to be Jake Sommers from California Dreams but there can only be one of those. Beat it Tommy D.
  9. Free Willy's Jesse & Willy
    671441 d1e7ed6a 8993 4454 aabb 40c8ddcc3d6e
    I've devoured nearly all the pop culture existing in the 90s. The one hole in my game is Free Willy. Never seen it. I'll watch it eventually, 90's nostalgia is like a drug and there's only a finite amount of it. Eventually I'll bottom out and that will be Free Willy. The first time I saw that coming attraction with the whale jumping over the kid on the reef with Michael Jackson singing I was like damn, that will be my version of pouring shoe polish through a piece of bread to get high.
  10. 90210's Brandon & Dylan
    671461 a98207da 5696 4d88 bfa3 4a8474904fdb
    The first time I knew what true friendship looked like was when Brandon fell over the side of that mountain and Dylan was screaming "Brandon, where you at man?" And then saved him. Dylan slept with Brandon's sister, then they fought over Kelly and made her choose between them and she chose herself and they did a weird flashback ep to Vietnam where Brandon was a soldier and Dylan was a hippy and even through all that, Dylan was never like, "shoulda let you die during our camping trip, bro."
