 by T. Mack

It’s Throwback Thursday, geeks! Today’s summer list has five fantastic tank tops that are perfect for keeping you cool while stirring up nostalgia for a few old shows we loved then and still love now.

The following tops all come from Etsy shop allaboutrecords. Click on the title of each show to go to the page for that shirt or click the shop name above to go to their home page. All these shirts are available in men and women’s sizes as well as a full array of colors. If you pick up one of these excellent throwback items, make sure you tell them we sent you.

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Not only is this shirt totally repping for Buffy, but for me personally, it’s showing pride for my own high school graduation year. Class of ’99 y’all!!!

2. Firefly/Serenity

Here’s another great shirt pulling double duty. Not only does it showcase my desire to be a big damn hero with the rest of the Serenity crew, but it also acts as a memorial to the late, great Hoban Washburne. He was a leaf on the wind. We watched how he soared.

4. Veronica Mars

This show was not one I watched, but I know at least one sister geek who would love to get her hands on this one.

2. X-Files (Scully or Mulder)

You can hear the song in your head right now, can’t you? Slow and eery and completely iconic. I want to believe!

5. Saved by the Bell

Tell me you remember this show! Zack and Kelly, Lisa and Screech. Time outs for fourth wall breaks. Ten bonus points if you can give the name of the original show before it was retooled into the program we remember and love today. Another five points if you can name the Disney actress who was featured in that original show. (If you Google, Bing, Wiki or otherwise search for the answers, it doesn’t count.)

What shows do you love to throw back to? Let me know in the comments.
