Freeze Frame Friday: Angela and Jordan


Talk about a show that represented quintessential teen angst. And only nineteen episodes were filmed before My So Called Life was cancelled. :-(


I sometimes picture Angela and Jordan when trying to write "emo" scenes. To capture the tension and longing they conveyed with only their eyes.

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

(P.S. Stina and I still have spots available to critique your first 50-100 words in our workshop. Email me if you want yours included.)

One of my favorite shows. I was so sad when it was cancelled. Have a great weekend!!

Joanne said...

It's a nice way to get inspired, thinking of memorable characters we've seen. Inspiration is all around us, isn't it. :)

I absolutely loved My So Called Life! Too bad it didn't last longer. :(

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I never got to see the show. Oh well.

You have no idea how obsessed I still am with this show! I didn't even realize it was your blog I'd clicked on until I got here, because all I saw was the photo! OOOHHH SWOOOOON! I got Jared Leto's autograph at a Thirty Seconds to Mars concert. Everyone be jealous :)

Great show, Christina. I loved every episode.

I never watched that show - maybe I should, huh? :)

Sarah Pearson said...

I remember seeing a few episodes. It was the first time I'd seen Claire Danes and I thought she was beautiful.

Janet Johnson said...

I only saw bits of this show, but I wanted to see more . . . it just didn't fit with my schedule (busy High schooler.)

I wish I had something to send for your first page critiques. You guys are awesome!

I hate that there are only 19 episodes of that show! It was so good. *shakes fist at TV execs*

Meredith said...

I just watched this whole show a few months ago, and I fell in love! I don't know if I've ever seen better real teenage angst.

I'll always love this show! Recently watched/listened to it while painting my apartment.
