The Shockingly Authentic “My So-Called Life”

My So-Called Life lasted for just one season of 19 episodes, but stands as Generation X’s version of Freaks and Geeks: A beautifully authentic depiction of adolescence created by an unknown but talented cast that would go onto great things. The show introduced the world to the magnetic Claire Danes and Jared Leto, whose awkward courtship formed the emotional crux of the series. Marie Claire provides a touching retrospective of a show that ended too soon.
