Jordan Catalano ... SWOON!
In 1994, we were introduced to angst-filled Claire Danes as Angela Chase, gorgeous Jordan Catalano played by Jared Leto, quirky Rayanne, boy-next-door Brian, and sensitive Rickie in the (way too) short-lived drama My So-Called Life. Considered a pioneer in bringing real issues to the small screen, the show devoted episodes to sexuality (Rickie was the first openly gay teenager on network television), drinking, guns, drugs, and, well, just the general agony of the four longest years of your life. (Though, unfortunately, we only got one season of this amazing show.) Watch this and reminisce on all of the feels:
Going beyond these serious matters, My So-Called Life also depicted the extreme highs and lows of high school romance. While we really hope that Angela isn't still pining for Jordan Catalano after 20 years, we did learn many long-lasting lessons in love as we watched her chase (pun intended) the unattainable bad boy.
