'The X-Files' appears among our readers' picks for the best TV shows of the Nineties.


Many people feel that we're living in the golden age of television, but the present run really began back in the 1990s. It was a time when shows like Seinfeld and The Simpsons elevated the art of the sitcom to new highs, while The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twin Peaks changed the rules of the game for dramas (and dramedys) forever. Since Friends landed on Netflix earlier this month, we decided to have our readers vote for their favorite shows of the entire decade. Some of these shows began in the late 1980s, while others carried on into the 2000s. But they're all firmly rooted in the 1990s.
