Trivia

It is interesting to note that the name of the production company for the show is Bedford Falls, and when its logo plays at the end of the show, the voices of James Stewart & Donna Reed can be heard singing, "...and dance by the light of the moon" from the song "Buffalo Gal." Bedford Falls is the locale of the movie _It's A Wonderful Life (1947)_ and James Stewart and Donna Reed are its stars and sing the song in the movie. In the penultimate scene of the pilot, Angela's mom has her television on in her bedroom and James Stewart can be seen giving his daughter ZuZu her petals back, a climatic moment in the aforementioned movie.

Quotes

Rayanne: Look Angela, I know we're not that close right now.
Angela: Look, I don't want to get into this right now. Alright?
Rayanne: Get into what?
Angela: Some big discussion about what happened between you and Jordan Catalano. Because the truth is, is that it happened, and nothing can change that. I don't want to talk about it.
Rayanne: Neither do I.
Angela: Oh, so why did you ask Rickie to leave?
Rayanne: I have to go to the bathroom. I need you to get me a jar.
Angela: I can't believe you.

Perfect. Proof a long run does not mean quality.
4 December 2002 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

My So-Called Life is one of those instant classics. A brilliant show, it just came along at the wrong time and was subsequently canned after one season. But that only adds to it's legend and in a small way makes the series even more enjoyable now on DVD. The writing never got a chance to waiver. There was never really a bad episode. The cast never had to grow up and face "the college years" or even prom. Instead we are left with this one season, this one year of high school, with a brilliant group of characters who are locked forever in youth.

The shows are great. Claire Danes took the Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy. And when you compare this one series with two High School dramas it was sandwiched between; the richy richy farce of the early 90s' Beverly Hills 90210 and the glossy junk of the late 90s' Dawson Creek, you see how true, poignant and amazing these 19 hours My So Called Life truly are.

This was a real classic. That it was canceled so quickly only proves Networks know NOTHING about quality.
