Audience Reviews for My So-Called Life: Season 1

  • Aug 16, 2022
    MSCL boldly captures the feeling of being a teen better than any show I've ever seen. A few others have come along of late, but none are better.

    I only seen this show once, and I would probably reccomend it to others. I thought that it was alright, not as good as Party of Five or Beverly Hills 90210 imho. You can check out a young Jared Leto, Clare Danes and a young Wilson Cruz in this show. Sad that it was canceled after 1 season and 19 episodes though. Who knows where this t.v./series was to go if it stayed on the air longer. Some good episodes and some not so good episodes imho. I went with 2 stars fro this show/series. I heard that this show was in the same time frame as Friends, so it had low ratings anyways this was a alright show. Nostaglia from the 90's hits with this one as I remember this show/series from when I was a kid/younger back in the day 2 stars.
  • Apr 10, 2021
    A cult classic. I wish there'd been a second season.

    The one show I would choose if I had to watch one on a continuous loop indefinitely.
