Re: Discussion for Episode 15: So-Called Angels

I had trouble with how Patty and Graham reacted to Rickie's situation at first. If your daughter's friend shows up at your house looking beat up, wouldn't you at least try to talk to him and find out what's going on? I know Rickie bolted before they could speak to him, but they said there was no way...

Re: Brian's comment about why he became yearbook photographe

His comment makes me think of Mark from the show "Rent." He too is criticized for hiding behind his videocamera, witnessing but not participating in his peers' lives. Brian may seem contradictory here, but it makes sense for someone who is lonely and cut off from his peers. He probably craves social...

Re: Could Delia actually forgive Brian?

I don't know. Delia's a sweet girl, but Brian's rejection will likely sting for a long time. You just don't do that to someone. As much as I like Brian and understand that he's not socially adept, I can't excuse how he hurt her like that, without even thinking. I realize Brian didn't mean to be call...

Re: Rickie's living situation--would it be permanent?

Yeah, I agree...I would much rather he stay with Katimski or a family that would support him than a group home. Rickie seemed reluctant about Pride House to begin with, but he was willing to go because he saw no other options at that point.

Wherever he is, it struck me that it's sad that Jordan's alone on Christmas.

Re: Discussion for Episode 15: So-Called Angels

I sure hope so! Although we really know next to nothing about Jordan's family life, except that his dad used to hit him. One thing I loved about the Angela's World analysis was how Jordan was lighting a candle in response to the conversation he had with Rickie about lighting candles--that it couldn'...

Re: Rickie's living situation--would it be permanent?

Then it occurs to me that it may not be well known that Katimski is gay. There are those scenes of that other teacher (I forget her name) flirting with him, unsuccessfully. I wonder how it all would have played out had the series continued.

Re: I understand "Pressure"

Thanks for the response and welcome! I agree that it was a choice Angela needed to make on her own. Ultimately, she was the one who had to face Jordan and tell him the truth, which she was afraid to do at first. I thought Jordan was a jerk about it in the beginning. Maybe that's typical of a lot of ...

Rickie's living situation--would it be permanent?

I just finished the show for the first time (loved it), and I wondered about Rickie living with Katimski. Do you think he would have moved into the group home when a spot opened up for him in however many weeks it took, or do you think Katimski would have been a permanent or official guardian? I rea...

Re: I understand "Pressure"

I thought it was sad the way Angela was seeking advice about sex and couldn't get the answers she needed. You can tell she's looking for reassurance that it's okay to not be ready, but the people she talks to seem blind to her feelings. I couldn't believe the doctor's response to just use both a con...
