My So Called Life With Kids
Watching My So Called Life together. When this show came out I was a freshman in high school, a grade younger than the main character Angela. At the time I had never seen a show that spoke of my life so much. It seemed this show was about my life, Angela had my thoughts. I hadn't seen the show since it originally aired on television but it has always stood out as an epic drama in my memory. Upon recent viewing I found myself still identifying with Angela, but this time I was surprised to find myself relating to Angela's parents and teachers too. Ah, growing up. I still have a secret hope that Claire Danes will decide to reprise her role. I'm willing to overlook the fact that she's obviously a bit older than 15 years old now. The actors are always older than the character they're playing anyhow, right? When Az is a bit closer to the high school years I'll probably force her to watch the show with me again, but of course by then it will seem horribly antiquated and eye-roll worthy.
