20 Years Ago on AOL.com: Mar. 26, 1999 -- "The Mod Squad" versus "EDtv", Star Wars Quiz, Kosovo Crisis Continues

March 26, 1999: The Friday lineup led with movies: The Mod Squad versus EDtv (with, as 20 years of hindsight shows, neither having much lasting cultural impact), as well as a Star Wars quiz to whet peoples' appetite for Episode 1.

We kept the same lineup for the PM update, though considering that NATO was still bombing Yugoslavia, we put the Kosovo Crisis back in the top text spot.
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the AOL.com home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
