I am pretty sure that 1997 JUST happened. Everyone is still wearing platforms and baggy jeans right? No? Apparently that was twenty years ago despite how young we all still feel.

Some great shows are turning 20 years old this year! It really makes you feel a bit old, especially when you remember watching some of their premiers! Check out which of your favorite shows are 20 this year!

People love finding out that their old heirlooms and useless junk in their attic are actually worth a small fortune! It makes everyone who watches start to question the value of everything they own. In 75 years maybe people will start bringing on beanie babies and find out they are just worth all the money and then everyone will regret getting rid of them! (A 90s kid can only hope) You can read more about some of the best finds from Antiques Roadshow here.
