Our sci-fi-loving couch potato selves were lucky enough to have indulged in top-notch sci-fi shows in our adolescent years. You've got the likes of Doctor Who, Fringe, even Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles before it was unceremoniously removed from the air (Damn you, Fox!).

But what about the sci-fi shows way, way back? As in, when all we bothered to watch were Cedie, Bikini Open (remember this?), and Batibot. Did the generation before us had something similar to satiate their curious minds? The '90s kids will tell you this: "Of course, mga ser!"

They might look old-school with graphics that are crappy by today's standards, but they nonetheless became hits in the hearts of geeks back then. Check them out below, five of the most classic sci-fi shows to on TV in the 1990s.

Nostalgia fest, now na!


1) SLIDERS

                                 


Series run: 1995-2000

In a nutshell: You've got a young genius named Quinn Mallory (Jerry O'Connell) who was able to invent a device that can open a portal to parallel universes! He and his friends (they're called "Sliders") then travel through the portal and see different versions of our world (i.e. a world where technology is banned because of the atomic bomb) in a joyride like no other. The only problem? They're having a hard time finding their way to where they originally came from. Bummer.

What the '90s kids liked about it: Wade Welles (Sabrina Lloyd), a female member of the Sliders crew. She had that cute, girl-next-door appeal going on for her. But she had a crush on the lead character, Quinn. Swerte mo, pre!


2) QUANTUM LEAP

                                 


Series run: 1989-1993
