Were you introduced to a TV show or movie too late? Did you see something that was clearly only good to those who could watch it through nostalgia-colored glasses? Did timing just ruin pop culture for you?
It’s like this show reads my mind. Just when I started to think that we needed to Talk About Brian, they give us a Brian-centric (and Brian-narrated!) episode. It was kind of funny how they just started off with some Brian narration, as if it were the most normal thing in the world.
The second episode of My So-Called Life didn’t feel like the second episode of a new series. Maybe because the first episode did such a good job at setting up Angela Chase’s world, by episode two the viewer already feels pretty settled in, and invested in the characters.
