A Touch of Nostalgia


For a show with only nineteen episodes, My So-Called Life certainly left a mark on my youth. When I'm feeling a touch of nostalgia, I watch an episode or two. It will forever be a favorite of mine.

one of my fave shows. i was distraught when it ended. i actually taped episodes on VHS and took them to college. i go to Hulu and watch them from time to time. still a big fan of Claire Danes. she's beautiful. thanks for sharing and take care.

Is it wrong to think Claire Danes is hot? I hope not.


I liked Freaks and Geeks... I totally would have been a freak and gotten my freak on with Linda Cardellini...

MSCL is a classic! One of my all-time favorite shows. I wish there had been 10 seasons!

I watched this all the time. My hubs still swears up and down that I have a crush on Jared Leto. Which I don't, but he's hot, so whatever.

I honestly don't know one female in our age bracket that was not affected by this show.
Love it!

I think I was a few years too young to watch this one, but I remember it was all the rage for awhile.

Why did it end so quickly?

The commenter who mentioned freaks and geeks is right on! One of the best shows ever, although at the time it seemed that only my sister and I watched it.

She looks so young!! And my ex-boyfriend was in love with her. Drove me nuts.

My best friend Britney and I used to rush to her house after school to catch the re-runs on MTV. Even though we'd seen every episode at least twice.

Ahh...Jordan Catalano under the bleachers. Forever burned into the hormonal minds of our generation!

Oh man, I remember that show. I went back and watched some on Hulu. So great!

Karen said...

Such a great show. I haven't watched it in years. I think I'll have to do that again.

Oh my word, you're a woman after my own heart! I was Angela Chase!!!

Great show and great post! I watched the reruns on MTV for as long as they aired them. I was so in love with Jordan Catalano and in my junior year of high school I met Jared Leto when I was an extra in a movie he was in. (Prefontaine, the back of my head is on the back of the movie box!) It made my year.

Talk about a blast from the past! I loved this show. I can't believe there were only 19 episodes.

Clare Danes has grown into a wonderful performer. Catch her in Temple Grandin on HBO, if you can...

April said...

I crushed on Jordan Catalano in a major way!! Loved this short-lived show, too!

Angelica said...

I remember watching this show on Sunday nights! A good show indeed!

Deidre said...

Aw, I never watched this show - But I get all nostalgic over Mad about you episodes.

Salt said...

Gosh it was only 19 episodes? I thought it was around for longer. That was my favorite show and the beginning of the reason for why I think Jared Leto is one of the hottest guys ever of all time.

Jamee said...

OMG I loved this show and was just talking about it the other day! I can't believe it was only 19 episodes. It seemed so much longer at the time!

I absolutely loved this show too. I even bought the DVD set because I want to watch it over and over.
