Such is the nature of growing up that the people we were as children likely have little in common with our adult selves. Of course, this doesn’t change the fact we are indeed the same people we always were, simply having evolved, adapted, and conformed to the world at large as it did the same. In this ever changing universe that we live in, the one thing that tends to stay the same throughout our whole lives is the sort of entertainment that helps get us through the day.
Obviously, most adults aren’t still sitting around their TV sets in great anticipation for the latest episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. However, those who were fans of the show might be watching adult programming with fairly similar concepts and themes, and many of them might not even recognize the similarities. After all, how similar can the Blue Ranger and Walter White possibly be? Well, the answer may surprise you.
Granted, because human beings are constantly changing individuals, not everyone adheres to any specific trends. That said, it feels entirely possible to guess the general type of television you once enjoyed based on the sort of TV you’re watching today.

1How many stars would you give Breaking Bad?
With his back against the wall due to a cancer diagnosis and a baby on the way, Walter White decided to shed his reputation as a mild-mannered teacher and become the best damn meth dealer in America. It wasn’t kid friendly, but the show was always an exciting thrill ride.
2What do you rate Buffy the Vampire Slayer?
Tasked with battling demons, vampires, and all things that go bump in the night, Buffy Summers is one teenage girl completely fit for the job. Sure, she’d rather be gossiping with her friends, but when it comes to saving the world, she’ll get the job done. A lot.
3What rating would you give Mad Men?
Who knew the wild world of advertising could be so dark? Well, at least when the mysterious genius Don Draper is involved, navigating his way through Mad Men in brilliantly manipulative fashion. Even as the world rapidly passes Don by, he never ceased to shock and surprise viewers everywhere.
4What rating does Stranger Things deserve?
It’s always a tragedy when a child goes missing, yet throw in a little supernatural mystery and it can also be a hit TV series. Stranger Things also gives fans the solace of a telepathic outsider who helps with the investigation, keeping things from getting too dark.
