Angela: I know, I know I acted like that. I just didn't know what else to do... I knew I was the last person on earth you wanted to deal with...

The show that started realistic portrayals of teens...
15 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I just happened to read the comments made by the previous reviewer and I have to laugh. First I will address the "need for a show about a teen nerd." Have you watched TV at all in the last 50 years? Let's see: Doogie Houser, M.D., Blossom, The Facts of Life, etc... T.V. has repeatedly offered up fare consisting of pure, wholesome, virtuous teenagers.

The fact is that teenagers rebel against their parents, care too much about that they wear, obsess over sex, etc. The teens are a time of experimentation and soul-searching. And My So-Called Life was the first T.V. show that honestly addressed the issues that modern teenagers were facing on a day to day basis. We can thank it for the other television shows that dared to follow its example and offer characters that teenagers can actually relate to.

Unfortunately, it doesn't contain the morality lessons that Leave it to Beaver always imparted, but the morality of the Cleavers was a thing of the past in the divorce-ridden, gay-friendly, sexually aware 90s. And before anyone attempts to throw it in my face that things would be so much better if we could hearken back to days gone by, let me remind you that the "decline of the family" occurred as a result of the staunch and oppressive 50s. People didn't confront issues back then and it made the situation worse. But now we have an opportunity to examine these issues with great programs like My So-Called Life.

It is a travesty of justice that it was ever cancelled.
