We miss you, 1990s.
Drink every time
-- A fog machine is used / there is 'mysterious eerie' fog
-- 90s celebrity sighting
-- Parents who are totally absent / are just plain terrible parents
-- Prepubescent hijinks
-- Any implied sexual tension between LITERALLY ANYONE on the show (parents, ghosts etc)
-- Sardo or Mr. Vink. Drink again any time they say "No mister, accent on the DO!" or "Vink with v-v-v-vah!" respectively
-- There is a Canadian accent. This will happen a lot (more than you remember)
-- First appearance of the villain
-- Awesome(ly awful) 90s haircut.
-- Lack of surprise/emotion from the characters for something that warrants surprise/emotion.
-- They are sitting around the fireplace. Every. Time.
-- A life lesson / moral is included.
-- Drink twice if you gasp / shriek / feel genuine terror
-- Cheer and drink when they throw the dust on the fire and say "for the approval of the Midnight Society"
Thanks to Katy and this site!
