    - The SNES, the Master System, the Mega Drive...
    - The music in the charts actually had some life to it back then.
    - My old Amstrad computer, with games such as Commander Keen 4 and Castles.
    - Frank Klepacki still did the music for the Command & Conquer games, which were still made by Westwood.
    - Watching Power Rangers at 8:55 on GMTV every Saturday.
    - Children's programmes were, IMO, better back then - there was Wizadora, Rosie and Jim, Playdays, Art Attack, How 2, Sooty...
    - Nobody cared about using tinned food in school dinners, and people weren't so hysterical about sugar and salt intake either.
    - Polly Pocket stuff was still pocket-sized.
    - Pretty much everything else about the 90's. The 90's rocked. I want my 90's back! T_T

    SMTV Live is one thing I really miss. It was just so good! I rarely missed it... it was pretty much the main reason I got up at like 9am! Wonkey Donkey, Pokemon, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Chums... Ant, Dec & Cat were brilliant. <3
