We all have that fave teen show that made us relate AF because it talked about relationships, school, and typical teenage problems. These *youth* shows are where artistas started their careers, where love teams were formed, and where iconic barkadas were made!
Here, we listed down five celeb groups from '90s teen shows that we all wanted to be part of at one point:
1. TGIS: Thank God It's Sabado (1995-1999)
2. Gimik (1996-1999)
The barkada: Judy Ann Santos, Rico Yan, Jolina Magdangal, Diether Ocampo, Marvin Agustin, Patrick Garcia, Mylene Dizon, Kaye Abad, and more. This show talked about unwanted pregnancy, sibling rivalry, broken families, romantic relationships, and student life.
3. G-mik (1999-2002)
The barkada: This youth-oriented show was inspired by Gimik and featured a brand new set of teens, including John Prats, Camille Prats, Angelica Panganiban, Carlo Aquino, Heart Evangelista, Stefano Mori, Miko Samson, Janus Del Prado, and more.
4. Click (1999-2004)
The barkada: Click ran for five whole years with different ~cycles~ of faces for every batch. These included Chynna Ortaleza, Alessandra De Rossi, Antoinette Taus, Cogie Domingo, Danilo Barrios, and Biboy Ramirez. The show also starred Angel Locsin, Richard Gutierrez, Iya Villania, and Drew Arellano!
5. Tabing Ilog (1999-2003)
The barkada: iWant describes the show's plot as "Eight teenagers struggling to find themselves and their true purpose. All things lead and build up to form friendship and love which will transform them for the rest of their lives." It stars Paula Peralejo, John Lloyd Cruz, Patrick Garcia, Jodi Sta. Maria, Paolo Contis, Desiree del Valle, Baron Geisler, and Kaye Abad.
Tabing Ilog is often compared with US TV series Dawson's Creek, because both shows focus on a group of friends who would often hang out by a river/creek to talk about their ~struggles~.
