Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': The flashbacks to the main characters' backstories happen around this time. Ted, Marshall and Lily's college days were from 1996-2000 plus their high-school years around 1993-1995, Robin's TeenIdol days in 1993-1995, and Barney's StartOfDarkness after being cheated on by his then girlfriend in 1998. What's even more jarring is that the show itself is a flashback, being told by TheHero to his kids from 2020.

CGI completely changed what you could see on the silver screen. Blockbusters like ''Film/JurassicPark'' and ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' made full use of cutting-edge VisualEffectsOfAwesome on their way to record-smashing box-offices. The first animated films created entirely in CGI also began their slow but steady takeover of the animated marketplace. On the other side of the spectrum, indie films became hot commodities as young, self-made filmmakers like Creator/QuentinTarantino, Creator/KevinSmith and Creator/RichardLinklater used the advances in filmmaking technology to create unique, edgy films on shoestring budgets. For a whole year, America lost its collective mind [[Film/TheBlairWitchProject in the woods of Maryland]] over a film made on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', after a shaky start in the '80s, shot to wild popularity. ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' redefined both animation and the family SitCom. RealityTelevision started. The millennial decade's comedy superstars were getting themselves known on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', including future senator Creator/AlFranken. ''Series/{{Mystery Science Theater 3000}}'' [[GrowingTheBeard got really good]], then was [[ScrewedByTheNetwork canceled twice]]. After people got the answer as to [[Series/TwinPeaks who killed Laura Palmer]], [[Series/TheXFiles Special Agents Mulder and Scully]] chased aliens, monsters, and other creepy creatures, [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy Summers]] chased vampires, demons, and vampire boyfriends, while [[Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys Hercules]] and Xena fought the tyranny of the gods in ancient Greece. Surfing and going to the beach became even more popular thanks to ''Series/{{Baywatch}}''. This was also the heyday of modern-era ''Franchise/StarTrek'', with ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'', ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]]'' and ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' all airing in the same decade. Furthermore, that franchise finally got real competition from ''Series/BabylonFive'' and ''Series/StargateSG1''.

''Manga/{{Akira}}'', originally released in Japan in 1988, became a surprise [[CultClassic cult hit]] on home video in the West, ushering in an entire generation of {{anime}} fandom and helping, along with ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', to mount a serious offensive against the AnimationAgeGhetto. Following in its footsteps, ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'', ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'', and ''Anime/PerfectBlue'' would go on to grab the attention of serious film critics the world over and signal the arrival of AdultAnimation as an artistic presence. Meanwhile, ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' redefined "CashCowFranchise" for millions of children (and [[PeripheryDemographic adults]]) around the world. ''Anime/SailorMoon'' gave girls [[GirlsNeedRoleModels strong female heroes to idolize]] besides WonderWoman;[[note]] while introducing many a young boy to ''*ahem*'' "mature" sensibilities. From Music/BarenakedLadies: "Gotta get in tune with Sailor Moon, 'Cause that cartoon has got the 'boom;' anime babes, that make me think the wrong things." [[/note]] on the flipside, ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' redefined "action cartoon", and would be responsible for more kids taking martial arts than anything since ''Film/TheKarateKid'';[[labelnote:*]] while also introducing many a teenage girl to ''*ahem*'' "mature" [[HoYay sensibilities]]. [[MrFanservice Buff, handsome, sweaty men]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything slamming into each other]] [[FoeYay every episode]]... this series alone could be cited for the rise of {{Yaoi}} in the US.[[/labelnote]] ''Anime/RanmaOneHalf'' became the most famous and funniest show to [[NotSafeForWork never be able to be shown on US Television]].[[labelnote:*]] [[Creator/AdultSwim [adult swim] ]] once stated, when they said fans could request shows, "And before you ask... NO RANMA! THAT WILL NEVER BE SHOWN HERE! EVER!!!"[[/labelnote]] ''Anime/{{Slayers}}'' and ''RecordOfLodossWar'' showed the D&D community that Japan was [[OneOfUs just as nerdy as we are]]. ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' shook the anime world with its dark {{Deconstruction}} of the medium; its unexpected success ushered in a torrent of [[FollowTheLeader imitators]] attempting (with varying degrees of success) to copy its visceral mecha combat, [[MindScrew trippy]] [[KudzuPlot plot]], and [[FauxSymbolism unconventional]] use of Judeo-Christian symbolism. The Creator/{{Toonami}} Creator/CartoonNetwork block was launched, bringing {{Anime}} to the viewing options of The Nineties children en masse. Even though it took almost a decade for it to be widely accepted as "mainstream" media in the United States (it was already mainstream in UsefulNotes/LatinAmerica before that), [[{{Animesque}} and its influence should be obvious by now.]]

The Ford Explorer became the first SUV[[note]]unless you count the original Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Wagoneer, Chevy Suburban, Land Rover, Toyota Land Cruiser, Nissan Pathfinder, Suzuki Samurai and/or the Ford Bronco as [=SUV=]s[[/note]], and the GM EV-1 became the first electric car. The Explorer would be successful, while the EV-1 would not for the same reason as the Sega GameGear of the same decade, as indeed was a problem for many of the decade's portable devices, [[UsefulNotes/BatteriesNotIncluded the incredible new technology drained batteries too fast]], as [[ExecutiveMeddling GM insisted it be fitted with the same lead-acid batteries as all its cars]]. The Lithium batteries that would power the cars and electronics of future decades were still in their infancy, and still far too expensive and unproven for most manufacturers or consumers to bother with. The gas crisis of [[TurnOfTheMillennium the next decade]] had its origins in the short-sightedness of a decade when gasoline was much cheaper. Cars from this decade are easy to spot thanks to a [[EverythingIsAnIpodInTheFuture cartoonishly curvy]] look, moving beyond the unaerodynamic box-on-wheels design that dominated TheSeventies and TheEighties, thanks to computer-aided drafting and design, but still not quite like the more aerodynamic angular cut corners look that dominated in the TurnOfTheMillennium and TheNewTens.
