From Buffy The Vampire Slayer to Dawson's Creek: the best life advice from 90s TV shows

Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Saved By The Bell, Dawson's Creek, Sister Sister, My So-Called Life: TV in the 90s was packed with teens dishing out advice on everything from love and life to dealing with heartache.

They may have had questionable fashion sense, but they sure knew a thing or two when it came to the school of life. 

How to handle an embarrassing situation, for example (Joey Potter), self confidence (Will 'Fresh Prince' Smith)  and the importance of sharing a kind word with those close to you (Angela Chase).

But it wasn't just the teens who were wise to life.

Friends, Sex And The City and Will & Grace were all sitcoms littered with good advice. Like the importance of solid friendships (Carrie Bradshaw), how to live the single life (Samantha Jones)  and of course, the particulars of Lobster Love (Phoebe Buffay).

From Doogie Howser to Boy Meets World, come delve into the very best life advice from 90s TV...
