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.
