My So-Called Life

“Sometimes it seems like we’re all living in some kind of prison. And the crime is how much we hate ourselves. It’s good to get really dressed up once in a while and admit the truth: that when you really look closely, people are so strange and so complicated that they’re actually… beautiful. Possibly even me.”

-Angela Chase

After years of flitting around it, I finally started watching My So-Called Life.  It popped up on the Netflix/Roku option a few weekends ago and I’ve already greedily devoured the entire season.  The series truly lives up to everything I expected: the gorgeous cinematography places it in the same league as feature-length films and the introspective observations about clarifying, revising and fumbling towards your identity still ring true.  Especially for me.
