Re: Question about Shane and Jordan in Self-Esteem

A key component of the show is people going about their lives the only way they know how, only to realize in the middle of things (or after the fact) that their choices were ill-advided, foolish, self-serving, careless, etc. MSCL highlights so well that no matter how self-aware we think we are (voi...

Re: jordan

I wasn't picking. I certainly didn't list those things as negative qualities. I just think he's so funny -- so particular, and yet so hard to pinpoint. :mrgreen: It's all in love. Yeah, you are right. I have been trying to think for more qualities, but you have covered all of them! And, as you have...

Re: Question about Shane and Jordan in Self-Esteem

Maybe you have found the explanation for why I love the scene in the library so much-- because what he says could be interpreted exactly as you interpreted it, rather than as him pressuring her. I love this scene as well. This is my favourite one after the one in the hallway when he takes her hand,...

Re: Question about Shane and Jordan in Self-Esteem

After reading my last two posts in this topic, I think I give the impression that i don't like Angela. I love Angela (you surely do if you are a MSCL fan); I just try to analyze her relationship with Jordan from another point of view.

Re: Question about Shane and Jordan in Self-Esteem

1. I never got the "she is real" thing. I don't think he likes her cause she's real-- I think he likes her cause she's quirky and self-aware and smart and because he feels like maybe she understands him. If "real" means she "has content" (as opposed to this other girl he used to sleep with), then I...

Re:

" I really can't figure out why is Angela so into him.It just doesn't seem realistic.I understand why she was obsessed with him before she even talked to him.She had her little ideal image of him in her head and she played it over and over again.But by now(end of the show) she should really know be...

Re:

I never got the impression that Shane had anything against Angela.It's just that he didn't know her well because she didn't hang out with them and that's way he said that "she is that weird girl...."" I totally agree, but there is something that i have realized. When the Buffalo Tom's song starts a...

Re: Jordon & Angela

I don't think he was really all that interested in Delia; he just saw her as something to pursue since Angela seemed even more out of reach with Jordan in the picture. Maybe you are right, you share the same gender as Brian, so you can rely on empiric proof :P but why do you think that when Angela ...

Re: Jordon & Angela

I think he really didn't want Angela to know he wrote it. It could be that he was living vicariously through Jordan. Yeah, I agree. In fact, I think that the love that Brian feels for Angela is platonic, rather than real. The funny sentence "Finally, an erection from actual physical contact" in cha...

Re: Jordon & Angela

Check out all of the amazing fan fiction on this site (and others) to see how others interpreted the fallout of The Letter! I have checked many of the fanfics here and I agree with you that they are amazingly well written, and with so many different outcomes...I have really loved some of them. Howe...

Re: Jordon & Angela

A small part of me thinks that Brian agreed to write that letter to sabotage what Angela & Jordan had so that Jordan could be found as a liar and thus she would finally see that Jordan's no good for her. Yes, maybe you are right. And another thing that I don't understand is why Angela should fall i...

Re: Jordon & Angela

One of my favorite moments in the series is when Jordan flippantly uses the word "ironic" to describe Patty's ex-boyfriend, as if it's a word in his permanent vocabularly, when he had just learned its meaning from Brian earlier that day. Brian didn't dumb down the definition for him, but he was per...
