short-lived 90s teen shows with cult followings

so i watched the first episodes my so called life and freaks and geeks

my so-called life

claire danes and jared leto were in this. it ran from life 94-95 and everything was really grungy and they had really cool clothes. basically 15 year old claire danes is this girl named angela who was really good and was in yearbook but then she starts hanging out with this bi guy and some other homeless girl and she dyes her hair red, quits yearbook, gets into fights with her mother, has a crush on jared leto (who was really cute),has this cute nerdy neighbour who looks like young joseph gordon levitt with an afro and goes to parties and drinks and almost gets arrested. this show makes you sympathise with everyone. from my description, claire danes sounds really annoying but i could understand her character’s frustrations and i could sympathise with her loser ex best friend and her parents, who have complicated stories as well. i would totally watch this. apparently it got cancelled because the network wasn’t sure about continuing it and claire danes didn’t want to return for a second season. so life sucks. my so-called life sucks. haha okay moving on

freaks and geeks

so i’ve heard lots of awesome stuff about this show. it ran in like 2000 and there was marshall from himym! james franco! seth rogen! young sweets from bones! it was really good. it basically followed linda cardellini as lindsay (who has since faded into oblivion) who was a geek and young sweets was her little brother and a geek too and marshall, seth rogen and james franco were freaks who basically were just stoners and then lindsay became a ‘freak’. obviously it was much more than that it was funny and heartwarming and there was a special needs kid but i found him really hot. (obviously the actor doesn’t REALLY have special needs) THIS IS HIM NOW IT’S BEN FOSTER LOOK AT HIS FACE WOWImage

you’re welcome for his face

tv

I watch a lot of tv

the season premiere of community was interesting… this episode was really self aware (more so than usual). they tackled the topic of change. this could be seen as abed’s anxiety over the study group leaving greendale but it could symbolise the change happening on  the show. the show runner dan harmon is leaving and so is chevy chase. in the end, Jeff saved the day (he actually didn’t; he was about to make the ending speech to get abed out of his dream zone (i’ll explain that) but abed made it for him in his head) by explaining that things would change but so had the study group and change is scary and everyone is changing, etc… the show had it’s usual comical elements with abed going into his dream zone (abed tv) after Britta told him to go to his happy place to deal with his anxiety about change, but everyone on abed tv still graduating and abed tv abed going into his dream zone which was like baby greendale or something, where everyone was a baby looney-toones style version of themselves and Leonard and the dean cross dressing (he was the hunger games lady and did the tango with Jeff and had muscular guys with unicorn horns pull him in a carriage and moved into the apartment next to Jeff), Annie and Shirley doing a senior prank and Annie worrying about everything and Britta and Troy (their relationship happened so fast!) making wishes in a fountain and the episode ended with a SURPRISE CHANG shirtless (wait no lol i think he was naked but we didn’t see too much) and giving a mailman this Image (hangover deja vu)
(because remember the last season ended with him losing control of greendale and his army of 12 year olds). I really loved seeing everyone back again, but this episode really seemed like it was just re-establishing everything. that’s great, but i want to see the greendale of seasons before. less meta bullshit and references to the real world. i really hope this was a one-off things and community gets over it and we go back to paintball wars, troy and abed in the morning and the dean popping in with elaborate costumes (DEAN-DONG!) 
i dont feel like talking about anything else. now i’ll watch my so called life, this short lived grungy mid 90s tv show with claire danes and jared leto. hopefully it won’t be a complete disappointment. maybe next i’ll talk about firefly (SPACE COWBOYS and YOUNG NATHAN FILLION *dies*
also i hate big bang theory now they have become so dumb and annoying the characters are they’re own stereotypes
