Trivia

In the early years, the interstitial segments were shot at the end of the night, after the casts had finished filming their respective shows. TGIF producers had to work closely with the crews of all of the shows and know precisely when they would air in order to keep continuity. After the acquisition of ABC by Disney in 1996, the interstitials became less episode-specific and they were often shot on-location or in front of bluescreens. See more »

So Damn Sweet
28 September 2020 | by Wisesoldierthe6See all my reviews

TGIF was some sweet times.

After a long week you get to chill home and watch sweet junk TV. The Shows were good and had quality and passion. The breaks in between were awesome and fun.

These were some great times. I'm talking solely on 90s to 2003. The shows during those days changed the world. And then it was down hill from there.

Nevertheless, Verdict: TGIF was Classical, sweet times.
