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

Jordan: So, what's up?
Angela: I can't get that song you wrote, like, out of my mind.
Jordan: I'm still not done writing it, so...
Angela: Well, there's this movie and it kinda reminds me of your song. Or your song kinda reminds me of the movie. But, hearing it kinda makes me want to go see the movie again.
[long pause]
Jordan: Oh. Uh, yeah. We could do that.
Angela: Yeah! But, uh, the thing is... this is gonna sound so weird. My parents are kinda like from the stone age. But um, they have to meet you. Before.

Yes,teens can have this much drama.
11 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

Actually MTV ran it right after it ran on ABC as part of a campaign to get it recomissioned (and as a brilliant marketing ploy for them, I agree). They ran it every day after school with various members of the cast introducing the episodes.

I was a year older than the characters in this film and yes one person can have that much drama in their lives and especially at that age. People that are too young to have come to this show for the first time need to remember that this was made for the same kids that a few years before were watching 90210 where nothing was even close to a real teen's life. This was very real for a lot of people and it also broken boundaries. Anyone remember a gay high school character on TV before this show? I can't. Plus, the fashion is too true that it is scary.
