This is my pick for a brilliant Christmas Must Have, buy this for your girl friends this Christmas, your daughters, your sisters it is just too excellent not to.
Jared Leto plays Jordan Catalano the mysterious, locker leaning, guitar playing object of her affection. He doesn't seem to know she exists but isn't that always the way with high school? I think everyone who watches this is going to relate completely to that experience. It's a show which delves into sexuality, drugs, sex, marriage, relationships, siblings, homelessness, and even more there's just no other way than to say it is the bravest piece of drama aimed at teens I've ever seen.
So good is it that the internet is filled with petitions, websites, open letters to bring it back. Even though it is now a bit late to do that it shows the kind of affection and love felt for the show. It was named second best show of ALL TIME by AOL TV and number 9 in the 25 Best Cult TV Shows of the Last 25 Years in Entertainment Weekly. It's very well thought of and for good reason, the soundtrack is excellent as well. I'm incapable of listening to Buffalo Tom's Late At Night without having a stupid smile on my face.
When I was about 19 downloading came into play in a big way and suddenly you were able to get shows which weren't on the tv any more. I had looked for it and looked for it but to no avail, then Amazon released it. JOY. I cannot tell you how many times I've watched it and it is always as good as I remember, it's a proper soft spot with me and I cannot praise it highly enough.
I recommend it to everyone, if you're a teenager, in your 20's or 30's whatever you're going to love it. Claire Danes is just stunning the whole ensemble is amazing, the tragedy of this show is that Danes never signed on for another season as she got offered Romeo and Juliet.
I implore you all go to Amazon or wherever buy the box set and you can thank me later I downright insist upon it!
Because I love you all so very very much, I've also attached the first episode of the show! So you can watch it hurrah!
Much love all
