47 My SoCalled Life

ABC 1995-1996


Like Freaks and Geeks, a oneseason wonder about high schoolers who don’t run with the popular crowd. This one, though, has a lyrical, intimate tone reflective of Claire Danes’ remarkable debut performanc­e as Angela Chase, a teenager rebelling against her family and friends’ good-girl expectatio­ns, but too lost in her own head to understand exactly what she’s doing and why. Created by Winnie Holzman and produced by the Thirtysome­thing team of Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, My So-Called Life has no peers in its ability to re-create that distinctiv­e adolescent mix of terror and abandon.
