After some more searching, I believe it could have been the Season 1 finale of Space Cases (created by Peter David and Bill Mumy of Babylon 5). It somewhat fits my description - one of the main characters dies while saving other crew members, which is followed by an emotional scene where the crew mourns her death. I definitely watched this show, so the only ...

It probably is the one mentioned in the other replies, but just in case, I remember a British show with a similar premise (although less 007-y and more X-Men-y) called The Tomorrow People (1973-1979)

Might it be The Champions (1968-1969)? Agents Craig Stirling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett work for a United Nations law enforcement organization called 'Nemesis', based in Geneva. Barrett is a codebreaker, Stirling a pilot, and Macready a recently widowed scientist and doctor. During their first mission as a team, their plane crashes in the ...

Sounds like "Mesmer's Bauble" which was an episode of the Series "Friday the 13th". A lonely man uses a cursed bauble to get close to a beautiful popular singer (Vanity) - very, very close. It's on youTube

This is "The Tale of the Hatchling", episode 12 of the second season of the original Are You Afraid of the Dark? show. .... A vehicle pulls through the gates of a boarding school called "The Black Brook School" supposedly one of the best boarding schools around. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson who had to go away on business for six months thought it ...

There is a strong possibility that this was the serial called Codename Icarus. It was a 5 part serial by the BBC on children's television and produced in 1981. You are correct in saying it had a very sinister science fiction/thriller/next level vibe. The "faculty" you refer too was most likely "The Icarus Foundation" which in the story ...

Big John, Little John. The show's main character was a forty-year-old middle school science teacher named John Martin (played by Edelman). While vacationing in Florida, he drinks from a spring which turns out to be the legendary Fountain of Youth sought by Juan Ponce de León. The water changes him into a twelve-year-old boy (played by Rist), and back again. ...

It sounds like you are referring to an adaptation of Nicholas Fisk's book series Star Stormers, which aired as part of the British children's educational TV show: The Book Tower. They seem to have created an adaptation of the first book in the Star Stormers series, which aired as a number of small segments spread out through The Book Tower episodes. You can ...

This sounds very like the Nicholas Fisk book, Starstormers. The TL;DR is that a group of kids are left in a board school on Earth, while their parents go off to a colony somewhere in another solar system. For reasons I can't remember, they decide that they're going to join their parents, and they do so by building their own spaceship out of an asteroid. On ...

This sounds like it might be Aquila (1997 - 1998). It isn’t an exact match at all but two boys find the spaceship in a cave in the ground after digging through into it. The two boys are on a weekend away with their mothers where they do some digging for treasure at a local moor. As Geoff is digging, he falls into a cavern followed cautiously by Tom. It is ...

I suspect you are thinking of Chaotic. Chaotic tells the tale of a teenage boy named Tom and his friend Kaz. They both play the Chaotic Trading Card/Online Game. Kaz always tries to tell Tom about a secret code to play for real which Tom refuses to believe. While playing online Tom receives the special password. When he enters the password into his game ...

To add to the other answers, it also made me think of the one eye monster called Ocula in Small Soldiers (1998).

This is The Asphyx (1973) While filming a public execution as a protest against capital punishment, Cunningham activates a spotlight that he has crafted using phosphorus stones beneath a drip irrigation valve.

Sounds a lot like the 2009 film Cold Souls but I could be wrong, because you said 90's. Civilization and its discontents. Paul, an actor preparing for "Uncle Vanya" on Broadway, is mired in ennui. His agent tells him about an office where he can put his soul in storage. He does so then discovers that being soulless helps neither his acting nor his ...

This could be the 1990s reboot of The Tomorrow People, first shown on UK television in 1992, which deals with the adventures of a group of teenagers who develop unusual powers (such as telepathy and being able to teleport). One of the teenagers was indeed called Adam, and was played by an Australian actor called Kristian Schmid. There was a black girl called ...

This brings to mind Code Lyoko. It was a French animation with a mix of both drawn and CGI animation. The protagonists would travel from the real world to a virtual world and fight monsters (not capture them). No tablets in the real world, but plenty of computer screens to transfer real people to the virtual world. Also, there were floaty screens in the ...

They both play the Chaotic Trading Card/Online Game. Kaz always tries to tell Tom about a secret code to play for real which Tom refuses to believe. While playing ...
