My So-Called Life

Recommended Posts

This forum was purged, rather than just condensed, and such a great entry in television history cannot be left without a thread, so here it is.

I suppose I should re-post some of the substantive analysis from the deleted forum, but for now I'll just note that Buffalo Tom's Late at Night came up on my iPod's shuffle play during a walk this morning, and I immediately burst into a huge grin picturing the Angela and Jordan hallway scene when he takes her hand.  On my death bed, I'll associate that song with that scene.  And romantic relationship scenes in TV/film/books are quite scarce on my list of favorites.  But this show presented that first consuming crush very well, and that scene is the perfect embodiment of it.

Chiming in a year later but I agree with how wonderful this scene was. For me a close tie is Angela and Jordan's first kiss in Why Jordan Can't Read just for her euphoric little dance afterwards. I loved that!
