5 shows we watched as teenagers… and why they’d be awesome in 2015

Netflix has been flippin’ amazing for bringing back those TV shows we’d forgotten all about from our childhoods, and while re-runs of Arrested Development have been great, we wish they’d bring back these classics from back in the day and put a bit of a 2015 spin on them… Dawson’s Creek (1998 – 2003) This coming-of-age classic included some very stereotypical teenage rebellion scenes, including tomboy Joey Potter using a ladder to climb into Dawson Leery’s bedroom.

Albums to watch out for summer 2015

Sometimes just one song can bring back memories of summers past.

We’ve selected some of the most anticipated summer releases of 2015, so that no matter how you remember this season, you’ll definitely have some good tunes to recall.   Carly Rae Jepsen – Emotion 23 June pre-order, August 21 on…
