Netizens have flooded the internet with their favourite memories of the shows in the form of memes and different posts about their observations.

While the fantasy drama which aired on HBO aired its series finale last year, the Indian television has seen a comeback of most of the shows that aired in the late 1980s and 90s starting with the Ramayan and Mahabharat. The purpose of re-telecasting the two shows was to keep the citizens of the country entertained while amid lockdown due to the current global crisis in the wake of coronavirus pandemic. However, a lot of other shows from the erstwhile era like Circus, Shaktimaan and others have also returned to the television screens on popular demand.
