In the 1990s the big three networks were being challenged by upstarts FOX and the WB for viewer loyalty. Alongside must-see stalwarts like Frasier, Friends, and Seinfeld, the new networks introduced pop culture touchstones like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files. Such shows would not only make household names of their stars, they would thrive in syndication and some even graduated to the big screen. In that decade, shows such as ER, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Northern Exposure were vying for awards while programs like Beverly Hills, 90210 and Home Improvement drew in millions of viewers each week. Even after these shows departed the airwaves, they live on in syndication and on DVDs, entertaining many generations of viewers. In Television Series of the 1990s: Essential Facts and Quirky Details, Vincent Terrace presents readers with a cornucopia of information about sixty programs from the decade. For example, did you know that Ally McBeal´s favorite brand of ice cream is Ben and Jerry´s? Or that Hank Hill´s shoe size is 12? Or that Carrie Bradshaw´s favorite cookie is Double-Stuff Oreos? These are just a handful of hundreds of fun and intriguing specifics found inside this volume. Programs from all of the major networks-as well as select syndicated programs and HBO-are represented here. This is not a book of opinions or essays about specific television programs but a treasure trove of facts associated with each show. From Niles Crane´s I.Q score to George Constanza´s high score on Frogger, readers will discover a wealth of fascinating information that, for the most part, cannot be found elsewhere. In some cases, the factual data detailed herein is the only such documentation that currently exists on bygone shows of the era. Television Series of the 1990s is the ideal reference for fans of this decade and anyone looking to stump even the most knowledgeable trivia expert.
Northern Ireland´s capital, Belfast, nestles in a semicircle of hills, where the River Lagan enters Belfast Lough. About a third of the population of Northern Ireland live here. The Titanic was built here and the dock where that was done has been preserved, along with the cranes and equipment used. Even the offices where the ship was designed remain as they were. Then there is County Antrim, which is beautiful. Its coast is dotted with beaches and rocky inlets. Inland there are nine glens, which descend to the sea. In addition to wonderful scenery, with forests, rivers and waterfalls, the landscape is dominated by spectacular ruins of fortresses built by Gaelic chieftains and Norman invaders. The area called Cityside includes at its core the only intact medieval walled city in Ireland or the British Isles. Facing it is the Waterside area. Saint Columba founded a monastery here in 546. Take a walk along the walls of the medieval city. Criss-crossed by mountains, moorland and inland waters, the Sperrins has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. What makes it so wonderful is that it is so peaceful. Tyrone is the largest county in the North yet has the smallest population. There are also nature trails and forest parks to explore. From the 18th to the last century, a huge number of its people left to seek new lives in North America and there are many places closely associated with them - ancestral family homes of US Presidents and other prominent figures, such as the Mellons, who founded Pittsburgh, Davy Crockett, President Woodrow Wilson and Ulysses S. Grant. Next comes County Down, where St. Patrick settled. He landed on the shore of Strangford Lough in 442 AD and is believed to be buried at Downpatrick. All of the hotels and places to eat are detailed as well, plus the hikes, walking tours, bike trips, boat tours and more. Entertainment, shopping, how to get around, sightseeing and more are described as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Patrella.
