My So-Called Life



Guys - I don't care what anybody else says - "My So-Called Life" was the best show on television.





I don't even know what inspired me to watch it tonight. But now, STILL, I get a little bit nostalgic (/teary!) when I watch it.

Can't you just feel the flannel cotton on your skin? Hear the Nirvana playing overhead? This show takes me straight back to junior high/high school.



OH MY GOD, when was Jared Leto this cute?? Are you looking at this?

Alright WAIT. Check this out:



I KNOW.

But then....fast forward....



Oh no.

After the singing career, and the eyeliner......oh Jared Leto, what happened?

I don't think I'm alone here when I say I lust for JORDAN CATALANO, and not Jared Leto.

Sorry guys, this has nothing to do with Austin. Except to make an impassioned cry to Alamo Drafthouse:

Have a "My So-Called Life" night already!!

I love the episode where he sneaks into her house in the middle of the night and you just can't help falling in love with him even though I think he was eating cheese out of Angela's fridge...

OMG I could not agree more! I loooooooooooove Jordan Catalano!! the episode where he and Angela keep making out in the boiler room, and she goes all neurotic (is that why I loved that show so much?), thinking maybe he doesn't want to be seen with her in public. But then, (voice proceeds to get higher and squeakier with each word) at the very end of the episode, he finally takes her hand and they (gasp!) walk down the hall together?!?!?! AHHHHHHHH! BEST. SHOW. EVERRRRRRR!

Let's convince the Alamo to do it! Or, somewhat less awesomely, let's have a private MSCL party!

I'm reading this posting and it's dead on! I too get mentally thrown back to junior high/high school. I started watching it again on Netflix this week and I feel like a kid all over again. Jordan Catalano was my dream boy back then. I actually met Jared Leto and talked to him for a bit before he went on stage to promote 30 Seconds to Mars. He was shitty and his band wasn't much better. Since then I've been jaded. Thankfully his looks have gone down the drain so watching him in this old show makes it seem like two totally different actors and keeps me focused on make-believe. Ah, what a wonderful show :-)
