Re: Question about Shane and Jordan in Self-Esteem

Hello, In the last part of the episode where Jordan is standing at his locker, before he walks up to Angela, is Shane encouraging Jordan to go over to Angela or is he making fun of Jordan for liking Angela? I couldn't really tell. Is he shocked that Jordan walkes off holding Angela's hand? What do ...

Re: what other characters would you have wanted to narrate?

Yeah, just reading through old posts leaves me pretty stunned how much hate there is for Jordan on this forum - conversely, how much Brian is put on a pedestal because of some arbitrary idea that he's "better for Angela." Why exactly I've never been able to figure out. Catalano may not be a perfect ...

Re: Discussion for Episode 15: So-Called Angels

I also initially thought it wasn't an actual room, but then the boyfriend got me doubting myself. You're probably right though... Yet he does seem rather comfortable there, as if it's his own personal space. Wherever he is, it struck me that it's sad that Jordan's alone on Christmas. I think he's a...

Re: what other characters would you have wanted to narrate?

But yes, Graham, and Jordan, clearly :P Which makes me wonder-- would Jordan be the same sort of parent that Graham is? I think someone here said that Patty picked her "Brian" but I'm not sure-- I think Graham and Jordan have a lot in common. Graham is neither Brian nor Jordan - he's somewhere in b...

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. Had this become an issue it would certainly have been known - Katimski seems to believe it is already (his conversation with his partner after Rickie calls). I'm sure we would have had a story arc dedicated to this question ha...

Re: Discussion for Episode 13: Pressure

It was actually a research project where I interviewed 200 kids between 13 and 18, and 200 adults between 24 and 29 (in 2007) to get my findings (100 men and 100 women for each). My hypothesis hadn't factored in other options - in fact, it had simply been that the 24-29 group were not having sex whe...

Re: Discussion for Episode 11: Life of Brian

It would have been too easy for them to have Brian and Angela dancing together here. The fact is, Angela was a total female dog (for lack of a better term) to Brian in this ep. It wouldn't have been right for Brian to just forget everything and dance with her now that she needed him (as opposed to t...

Name by the Goo Goo Dolls. Always makes me think of Angela and Jordan, particularly Angela's feelings for him.

Re: Discussion for Episode 13: Pressure

I actually did a 2nd year sociology paper on the subject of teenage sex. Basically, my findings were that while experimentation has always been a part of such relationships, stuff like oral and cunnilingus has only really become commonplace since the late 90s/early 00s. Therefore, I figured that for...

Re: Why does the letter work for Jordan, but not Brian?

Does Jordan really care for her, or just enamored with the first girl who can tell him "no".? Angela is not in love. She is infatuated...there is a difference. With regards to yr first point, I can't say I agree at all. Jordan is a very proud guy. He may be enamoured with her for having the ability...

Re: Discussion for Episode 13: Pressure

Everyone's analysed the episode so well I don't have much to add - but I will admit that I was a bit amused by this ep in a way the other 18 didn't. The concept just feels kinda dated to me. It's probably my upbringing as a child of the 2000s, but for me it just seems, you know, abnormal (to paraphr...

Re: Would Rayanne & Angela's friendship ever been the same?

Whoa, nearly a 9 year bump but I'll share anyway. No, their friendship would not have been the same (definitely not like it was pre-Other People's Mothers). Not to say that I don't think they could have been friends later. I on e experienced something similar when a now-ex (but not because of this) ...

Re: Why does the letter work for Jordan, but not Brian?

I'm Re-hashing here but I'll say it anyway. Basically, the letter "worked" for Jordan for two reasons: A) Angela is already in love with him B) Even if he didn't write it, he meant every word that was in it. Angela realizes this. She knows that Jordan is not the most eloquent or sensitive guy out th...

Re: Speaking Sharon

My theory on Sharon in the later episodes: she represents the "typical" teenage girl life (the extra-curriculars, the jock boyfriend, what have you) as opposed to Rayanne who is completely wild and unconventional, and Angela is somewhere in between. Angela would love to have with Jordan what she thi...

Even though I've posted already and the forum seems pretty much dead, I may as well do this. When did you first see the show? Only about a week ago.
