Stars: Claire Danes, Jared Leto, A.J. Langer, Bess Armstrong, Wilson Cruz, Devon Gummersall, Devon Odessa, Lisa Wilhoit, Tom Irwin, [and SHANNON LETO]
Sometimes you’ll come across shows that never really got a proper chance. They get one fantastic season and then they’re cancelled because a fanbase hasn’t had the chance to form yet. People always talk about what a travesty that is. But, when you think about it, one season shows are perfect because they never get the chance to disappoint us.
That said, My So-Called Life leaves us with only fond memories. Fronted by a famously red-haired Claire Danes and a pre-ombre-haired Jared Leto [with guest appearances by his brother, SHANNON LETO], My So-Called Life covers topics that were (and sometimes still are) too taboo to talk about at the dinner table, such as homophobia and teen homelessness. —Hope Schreiber
