Riese’s Team Pick: My So-Called Life Cast Panel from 1995

You guys this just became the best fucking day of my entire life. Now I will make it yours. I’m paying it forward.

The Paley Center does panels with casts, creators, directors and writers of various popular teevee shows — they’re really excellent, you can download them as podcasts and listen to them on your iPods or you can watch them on videoThe L Word, The Office, The Daily Show, Dollhouse, Sex and the City, Golden Girls, Law & Order, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Mad Men … the list goes on. however, I was unaware that they’ve been doing this since the mid-’90s UNTIL TODAY.

Today I stumbled upon a My So-Called Life panel from March of 1995. With Claire Danes, Tom Irwin, Devon Odessa, Wilson Cruz, Devon Gummersall, Lisa Wilhoit, Bess Armstrong and A.J. Langer.

  1. ohai, hulu. me + you + this show = the rest of my life for the whole rest of the day today

    I think all these actors are smart and stuff, and I want to hug them all and bake them cookies and drink hot buttered rum with them while we do puzzles on my coffee table.

        I think it would work out well for everyone because the puzzles I have in my house right now are fantastic – a wolves in winter puzzle called Eyes in the Mist, and another one called Big Rig Dreams.

        • I SHALL
          Big Rig Dreams…priceless. just a quick question, these puzzles, they arent those damn 3-D things, are they? i got super impatient with one of those once, took it out in the front yard, and set it on fire. please no 3-D puzzles.

  2. I love this show so hardcore. I’m trying to convince my roommates of it’s awesomeness but I don’t think they really get it. They made fun of the Christmas episode!
