Hi and welcome to this weeks TV Rewind for those of you who might not have heard of TV Rewind before its simple. We take a look back at all the show that have come and gone over the years that we might have forgotten. This week is going to be no different.

This week on TV Rewind we are going to be taking a look back at Sister Sister.




The show was about twin sisters who were separated at birth and adopted by two separate parents. One sister was adopted by a single mother and the other sister was adopted by a couple but soon after the adoption the mother died.

Fourteen years later they find each other and hatch a plan to get back together. Their plan works and they all move in together. which only leads to friction between the two parents who have different views on how to raise there child.

Lisa is mother to Tia a intelligent girl who lives in the inner city Detroit while Tamera is a bit more of a free sprite who lives with her father, Ray in the suburbs.

When the twins get to live together they start making up for lost time as been sisters.

My sister used to watch this show when she was younger and I have to admit I like watching it as well, but the alternative was doing  my homework so I would have watched the grass grow apposed to doing my homework.




In saying that the show was funny. The contrast between Tia (the Smart one) and Tamera (the not so smart one) was very entertaining. while the contrast of Lias (the laid back mother) and Ray (the hard working father) was just as funny and don’t forget about Rodger the boy next door that is in love with the girls and keeps getting shot down as he tries to get one of the girls to go on a date with him.

Its that time of the week agin, its time for this week TV Rewind, and for those of you new to TV Rewind the Idea is simple we take a look back at the shows that I used to watch when I was younger. This is the 37th edition of TV Rewind you can look back at all the other blog post here. This week the word wide phenomenon Pokemon Go was launched in Ireland and just like the rest of the world it has people out of their house chasing Pokemon in the real world, (it is a cool Idea and it gets people out and about) and then you have to train your Pokemon and become a Pokimaster (I hope I have got that right if not let me know by leaving a comment in the comment box below) what some of the younger kids might not know is that Pokemon started life as a Japanese trading card game in 1996 which what developed into a TV series in 1997. There is over 16 seasons of Pokemon made up of over 900 episodes, and 18 TV movies




I have to admit, this is one of the first TV Rewinds that I did not watch when I was child, but I have a general idea what was going on.  The show follows a young Japanese boy who want to become a Pokemon master. His first Pokemon was Pikachu. After a rocky start the two become friends and Pikachu fellows Ash on his travels through the Pokemon leagues to become a Pokemon Master. The shows are broken up into different story lines just like the video games. There was also a number of spinoffs which I know nothing about so I won’t even try and write anything about them.

I was just a bit to old to have get into Pokemon but I remember that it was a big deal. The trading card game was just also big but nothing like the what is happing now with Pokemon Go. I can understand the appeal of Pokemon Go you get the chance to go out and become a part of the Pokemon world (if there was an app where you could become part of Power Rangers world I would download it). With the success of the Pokemon Go the show is becoming popular again also there is talk about Pokemon getting a live action movie as well.

Did you watch Pokemon when you were growing up, what did you think about it, let me know by leaving a comment below in the comment box.

Hi Viewers it is a bit late but here it is, its time for TV Rewind if you are new to Viewit and haven’t heard of of TV Rewind before it is very simple we take a look back at TV shows that have gone off the air for the last few years. You can check out other TV Rewinds from the past year and a half, here. This weeks we are taking a look back at a show that I loved when I was younger.

Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 12.16.00

Its the Animaniacs. The Animaniacs was a variety show hosted by the Waner brothers Yako, Wako and there sister Dot as you can see for the intro above. The show was full of pop culture slap stick comedy. There was many charters in the show as it was set on the lot of Warner Brothers lot. The 3 siblings would escape there home in the Warner Brothers water tower and make as much trouble as they could. The Animaniacs was the show that fallowed on form Tiny Toon Adventure. The thing that made Animaniacs popular was that the writers wrote comedy for the parents as well as the kids so the parents could sit down and watch the show as well and not be board or think about the dirty dishes that need washing. The way they did this was through parodies of films and shows for example one recurring segment was called Goodfeather which was a reference to the crime moves Goodfells and Godfather.




I was six years old when Animaniacs first aired and I love it because I had watched Tiny Toons as well. I remember watching the Warner kids running around the place having fun and just make as much trouble as possible (I grew up in the country so I had plenty of chance to get myself into trouble).The Aninmanincs also made fun of other companies and there shows like Disney and its films and they also made fun of the Power Rangers which was a competing show. What I didn’t know about the show was that Steven Spielberg was the executive producer on the show.

It is the sort of show that you could watch today and enjoy still. It was in the middle of the 90’s which was the golden age of Warner Brother animation with show like Pinky and the Brain, Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries, and Taz-Mania. What did you think of Animaniacs let me by leaving a comment bellow. You can check out last weeks TV Rewind Here.

HI Viewers it is time for this weeks TV Rewind. This was sent into us by one of our Viewers and it is a grate choice. It is Rosie and Jim. Rosie and Jim was a British children’s television program produced by Ragdoll productions and aired on ITV fro September 1990 to December 2000. The program continued, on and off, to be shown on CITV until 2005.

Rosie and Jim are tow rag dolls who live aboard a narrow boat called the Ragdoll, which is fro Birmingham. There, they sit with an concertina on their lap, and come alive when no one is looking, to explore the world that they pass by on the canal. There learn to experience thing by following the Rag doll’s owner on his or her adventures and secretly joining in with them.Usually, they end up causing trouble, but they never get into trouble because no one ever seems to see them.

hqdefault.jpg Rosie and Jim

The show ran for ten years and had 175 episodes. I remember this show but I have to confess I was more of a Bosco fan which was a little before Rosie and Jim. Rosie and Jim was just one in the many children shows out there in the 90’s, that populated normal TV channels but now you have channels that are just for kids, nearly every network has these channels now. Here is a little reminder of Rosie and Jim.

Do you remember Rosie and Jim, if you do let me know what you taught of them by leaving a comment below. Also if you would like to suggest a show for TV rewind get in contact with me on VIewit, Facebook, Twitter, or Google +.You can check out last weeks TV Rewind here.

Hi Viewers this week for TV Rewind I’m join way back to 1995 and one of my favourite shows as a kid, Pinky and The Brain. you could go back further to 1993 when they first appeared of our TV’s in Animaniacs. It was in 1995 when it got its own spin off show, simply called Pinky and the Brain.

The idea of this show was very simple Pinky was a very dumb mouse, and Brain was a very smart mouse who lived in a laboratory. In each episode they try and take over the world but fail spectacularly every time, leaving Brain very frustrated and giving us something funny to laugh at after school before you had to do your homework if you were lucky.

Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 09.25.54

The show ran for four seasons spanning 65 episodes over a three year period, and will be remembered for a lot of things but one thing in particular and that is the exchange that happened every show between Pinky and the Brain

Brain

Pinky are you pondering what I’m pondering?

Pinky

I think so, Brain, but

This is when Pinky would say something out of the blue like “If they called them sad meals, kids wouldn’t buy them”

This was the sort of thing that made the show so funny the odd couple and how they played off each other.

There you have it for another week let me know if you remember the show and if there is any show you would like to feature on TV Rewind, leave you suggestion in the comment below. Let me know what you taught of this weeks TV Rewind by leaving a comment below. You can check out last weeks TV Rewind here.

This weeks TV Rewind is the kids show Goosebumps based on the stores of R.L. Stine’s award-winning book series which places average kids in a weird alternate reality, where they find themselves facings such situations as haunted amusement parks, possessed Halloween masks and other bizarre and frightening scenarios.

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 12.29.55

The show originally aired in 1995 and ran until 1998. There was some conterviresy over the content of the show and weather are not it was suitable for younger viewers so it was giving a GB-7 or TV-Y7 rating in the states, which meant that it was not suitable for kids under 7. In England the show was aired on CBBC who heavily censored the show making big cuts to it, are just banning the episode altogether.

The first Goosebumps book was written in 1992 and it was Welcome to Dead House. Between 1992 and 1997 there was 62 books published under the Goosebumps umbrella. And there was 74 episodes in the 4 seasons of the TV show. Goosebumps is coming back in the form of a film. staring Jack Black as R.L. Stine. It is out in cinemas October 16th.

I remember watching Goosebumps on Cartoon Network most of the shows were entertaining to watch but some of them just scared the hell out of me and sure wasn’t that half the fun.

The internet is awash with the news that Bart Simpson will be killed in the next season of The Simpsons. Sideshow Bob will finally get his revenge on his rival after many failed attempts of trying to kill Bart. Simpsons producers revealed during a ATX Festival panel in Austen, Texas, this weekend that Sideshow Bob-Krusty the Clown’s evil former sidekick voiced by Kelsey Grammer-wil  kill Bart during the show’s Halloween episode this fall.

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 18.16.11

Executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly that in the past he’d wanted to see Wile E. Coyote catch the Road Runner in Looney Tunes cartoons, adding, I hated frustration comedy so we’ll scratch that itch.

Don’ worry too much about bart, though , because he’ll be revived after the Halloween episode. Each season, The Simpsons airs a Halloween episode that strays from the show’s usual format and story lines. Sideshow has been a recurring character on The Simpsons since the Fox series first season in 1989. This will not be the first time Bart has past away in the show he was pulled apart by snowmobiles in the episode The Father, the Son, and the holy Guset Star.

I was in the pub at the weekend and with my friends and we got chatting about shows we used to watch when we were growing, which got me thinking there was a lot of grate show in the 90’s and the naughts so I came up with a little thing I would like call TV Rewind we just take a look back at all the shows we loved back in the day.

74392-2.jpg Kenan & Kel

First up is Kenan & Kel. It was a teen comedy sitcom created by Kim Bass fro Nickelodeon and was set in Chicago. Its stars were part of Saturday Night Live, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. They were part of a popular Nickelodeon sketch-comedy series “All That” and in 1996 they got their own show Kenan and Kel whit got 65 episodes over four seasons and they also got their own movie as well. It was a wacky slap stick comedy show that hit the right notes with teenagers and won Favorite TV show in the 1998 kids choice awards.

The show gave birth to some grate one liners and quots like “Aww here it goes” . The part of the show that I will always remember would be Kel’s love for orange soda, and they had a hole bit just for this fact

Kenan: who loves orange soda

Kel: Kel loves orange soda

Kenan: is it true

Kel: Mm-Hmm! I do, I do, I do-ooooh!.

The show ran from 1996 – 2000. Did you watch Kenan and Kel. What did think of it let me know by leaving a comment below.
