My So Called Life

Saw this on Jezebel today. I was not allowed to watch My So Called Life when I was younger, along with many other essential teenage nineties television shows (like 90210 and Friends). This, of course, made me obsessed them. I was able to sneak a few episodes of My So Called Life, one of which involved Claire Danes crying...there is nothing more painful than watching Clair Danes "cry" (see Romeo and Juliet and Little Women for proof). After watching this reel I feel like I am missing an essential part of my pop culture education. I mean, really, Jared Leto has been bagging girls way out of his league for the last ten years all because of this show. But, like, on the other hand, I might like totally want to smack Claire Danes if I watch too many episodes back to like back. Still, considering Netflixing, thoughts?

OMG - which episode of My So Called Life DOESN'T have Claire Danes crying?! That show was so amazing! All the flannel, plaid, ripped jeans and combat boots. 90's lust!

I've been meaning to post on this show, as I just re-watched the entire show! (But time has been, well, limited.)

I feel very much about this show the way I feel about "Catcher In The Rye." It's a show that I will always relate to, always find so much pain & beauty in, because it's always been a part of my life, at different points of my life.

I really loved this show, it was so endearing and there was nothing like it on TV.
