Cyrano for the modern urban high school Roxanne
30 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The overlapping plot strands connect with great subtlety and sensitivity in this episode in which Angela makes a three-tiered discovery with the help of three young guys who all care about her - while Graham dazzles the suits with his cuisine. Jealousy is one powerful thread in this episode, from three different angles, involving two different generations. Loneliness and betrayal, or potential betrayal, also knit together Angela's parent's relationship and her budding one with Jordan. Like Edmond Rostand's classic "Cyrano De Bergerac," this episode dramatizes the many greatly conflicting "people" we all house inside ourselves, demonstrating that what may be eloquently written may be agonizing - or nearly impossible to enact, to fulfill, to substantiate. This episode demonstrates that archetypes like insecurity, jealousy, envy, loneliness and yearning - transcend the generations; they are eternal boomerangs of the human heart.

This episode and "The Substitute" are my two favorites, the ones I like to watch again with my friends and loved ones. Life lessons.
