You know, when I was younger, I loved My So-Called Life. And I always rooted for Brian Krakow to get with Angela, largely because I thought Jordan Catalano was a dick.
Or at least that was how I interpreted it at age 14. Subconsciously, of course, it was because I identified with Brian and was totally in love with Angela.
I can’t explain why it’s taken me almost 10 years to figure this out, but it certainly explains a lot.
