Just as the nation seemed to be settling into a period of genuine peace and prosperity the president was ensnared in a sex scandal with a White House intern leading to impeachment and increased political polarisation.
Where would we be without Google, Amazon, PayPal, eBay and Match.com? How about email?

Storylines got younger (Freaks and Geeks, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and formats more daring (Northen Exposure, The Daily Show).
