My So-Called Life

19May10

And on that subject … let’s have a clip of the best teen drama ever produced (Heartbreak High a close second). Why not eh. For old time’s sake.

I’d taped the episode and I remember watching it and then pressing rewind for this last clip again and again like the soppy teenager I was. The whole series utterly summed up the confusion, awkwardness, uncertainty and longing of adolescence (along with its suspect sartorial forays into 90s shapeless grunge) and beyond, the contradictions of being a human. This clip is perfect – the gaze of your schoolmates, the culmination of hours of obsessing, the eye contact in the corridor, the moment when – just for a little bit – it all goes right.
