Nickelodeon

These days all we ever talk about is Guts, Hey Arnold and Double Dare, but during Nickelodeon's hayday the network's most popular show was actually The Secret World of Alex Mack.

The show about a teenage girl with a set of unusual super powers (including turning into CGI goop) was a smash hit. But where are the stars today, and how much have they changed since the '90s?

Annie - Meredith Bishop

Alex's smart, older sister was usually the show's voice of reason. After the show ended, Bishop had roles on other big shows like Felicity, Scrubs, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Her most recent TV role was on the short-lived TV show Grip and Electric.

Ray - Darris Love

Alex's best friend hasn't exactly made a splash in Hollywood since the show ended. Love had parts on Buffy and NYPD Blue, but otherwise just a few small parts in indie movies. Maybe you recognize him from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Robyn - Natanya Ross

Another one of Alex's friends. Ross had also starred in The Babysitter's Club, and followed up Alex Mack with roles on 90210 and Boston Public. But shortly after, Ross developed a drug addiction that forced her to leave Hollywood at just 22 years old.

Since 2016, she's sober and looking for work again. Hopefully she can make a comeback.

Jessica - Jessica Alba

Yes, for three short episodes the original Alex Mack mean girl was played by future Hollywood star Jessica Alba. Of course, you'll recognize her from the Fantastic Four movies. Maybe you even bought baby products from her personal line, The Honest Company.

Nicole - Alexis Fields

Another friend of Alex's with a no-nonsense attitude. Fields's older sister Kim was also on The Facts of Life. Alexis went on to have roles on everything from Sister Sister and Moesha to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Her last big part was a lead role in the WorldStarHipHop web series All That Matters.

Hunter - Will Estes

Remember Alex's love interest from the show's final episodes? He went on have a recurring role on 7th Heaven and American Dreams, before playing Jamie Reagan on the hit show Blue Bloods.

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

13 Secrets From The Set Of 'Married With Children' That'll Make You Believe In Love And Marriage

Married...With Children is one of those shows that felt different from all the rest. Every other sitcom was trying to put forward this false homage to the happy family, but honestly, that's not the way the real world was. There is always a little bit of conflict in the real world. We don't all get along all the time and yes, sometimes we can be a little inappropriate. The only family that seemed to give us a more accurate representation of family life was the Bundys. Al Bundy was a little bit rough around the edges, and Peggy was
