"Dawson's Creek" (1998-2003)
What Still Works: While the show was seen as pretty shocking for primetime back then (what do you mean teenagers talk about sex all the time???), that willingness to let teens act like teens actually what makes this show seem current despite the mom jeans and grungy hair. "Dawson's Creek" didn't try to minimize the issues of teenagers -- and was one of the first shows to deal with homosexuality in a way that didn't scream "Very Special Episode."
What Doesn't: There's a lot of navel gazing here. Yes, they're teenagers, but that got a little trying even in the '90s.
How We'd Change It: Besides the clothes? Dawson's passion for movies was wearying -- and too often on the nose thematically. Let the guy play video games instead. Or doodle. Or something.
