90s Flashback: Blossom, Janeane Garofalo, and more

I had major flashbacks this week. Here's a rundown of all the 90s stars who popped up on the tube for somewhat under-the-radar guest spots:

Mayim Bialik, who's best known for the five years she spent starring in "Blossom," a dramedy that launched Joey Lawrence's career with just one sound: "Woa!!," was on "Bones" Wednesday night playing a suspect in a murder.

Janeane Garofalo's been hitting the TV circuit hard in the last five years, scoring recurring roles on "The West Wing" and "24." But her most surprising gig was as a potential feminist mentor for Casey on ABC Family's "Greek" this Monday. Talk about random. That won't be the last time we see her on the network though. Since it snatched up Lindsay Lohan's Labor Pains and Garofalo has a part in the rom-com, she'll grace their airwaves once again. But you'll be seeing even more of the no-bullshit comedian this year in the comedies Love Hurts and For Better or Worse.

• I was watching "Parks & Recreations" Thursday and suddenly Pamela Reed shows up as Leslie's mom. Instantly, I was like, "Hey! There goes that lady from Kindergarten Cop." Poor woman. An entire generation of people only know her as Arnold Schwarzenegger's sidekick.

Tim Reid, who you may remember as Tia and Tamera Mowry's dad on "Sister, Sister" reunited with Tamera on her new ABC Family comedy "Roommates" to play her dad again. Both have toned down their over-the-top, campy humor. But this time, instead of hiding her bad grades from him, she was trying to hide her vibrator. Things sure have changed.
