I remember when I was 13-14 years old, running home from school every wednesday to catch the last episode of “My So-called life”. It was so different from all of the other soap-operas and teenager shows on TV. I finally found something to identify with! All the insecurity and the difficulties Angela (Claire Danes) had to deal with in high school was real to what I was experiencing at the time. I also had a huge crush on Jordan Catalano, played by Jared Leto, and had posters all around my room.
One month ago I decided to buy the DVD of the whole series, to check out if it still was up to date. And it definitely is! It is so much fun to watch it. I really enjoy seeing the clothing style and music of the period, with all the grunge and the new romanticism. And I remember that I used to wear the same kind of shirts that Angela wears, when I was 11-13 years old. I’m really enjoying myself watching this again:) And I like the way the subjects are approached in a realistic and smart way, in comparison to many of today’s youth shows. I’ve made my sisters of 13 and 14 years see it, and they like it:)
