It's a Christmas miracle! TFGIF is back with a new episode! And this time, Drew and Katie are mixing things up a little, talking about holiday-themed episodes from six different 90s shows: Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Boy Meets World, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Full House. What are our own Christmas traditions? What present do we both hope to get from Santa each year, now that we're adults? Listen in and find out!
Damn, Gina!! Join Katie and Drew this week as they revisit Martin and all its crazy characters through season 2's "Suspicious Minds" and season 3's "Mother of the Bride."

Oh Mylanta! Join Katie and Drew this week as they finally crash into Full House with season 3's "Honey, I Broke the House" and season 5's "Sisters in Crime."

Katie and Drew go back to Cali this week with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the show that sent Will Smith rocketing into superstardom (and got rid of that pesky IRS debt), while also bringing the world the glorious "Carlton" dance.

Things take a serious turn with the iconic season 4 episode "Papa's Got a Brand New Excuse," where Will's father comes back into his life. Drew tries not to cry just talking about it, while we also get into Geoffrey's sass and the perfection of Uncle Phil.
