Episode Info

The pilot episode of My So-Called Life introduces viewers to series heroine Angela Chase (Claire Danes), a 15-year-old who is contemplating breaking out of the mold she has always occupied as a well-behaved daughter and straight-A student. When she begins to break away from her longtime best friend, Sharon (Devon Odessa), in favor of the company of wild child Rayanne (A.J. Langer) and dyes her hair crimson, Angela's baby boomer parents are alarmed, fearing they have a textbook case of adolescent rebellion on their hands.
