Re: gibt es eine vergleichbare deutsche serie??

Im gleichen Genre gab es mal die RTL-Serie "Mein Leben und ich" mit Wolke Hegenbarth -- zumindest die ersten beiden Staffeln waren überraschend gut gemacht, aber mit einem Comedy-Schwerpunkt. Die Macher von "Mein Leben und ich" nannten seinerzeit auch "My So-Called Life" als eine der Haupt-Inspirati...

MSCL playlist on Spotify

For those of you who are among the lucky ones to have a Spotify account, here's the link to my "My So-Called Life" playlist. Since Spotify is not yet officially available in the US, it's probably only of interest for our friends in the UK, Sweden, France and some other countries. http://open.spotify...

Re: Friday Night Lights

Zach Gilford ("Matt") showed indeed an amazing performance (not only) in that episode. Also, Taylor Kitsch ("Tim") really grew as an actor over the past seasons. Unfortunately both will get probably an Emmy nomination at best -- the jury has a sad history of overlooking FNL for years now (and with t...

Re: Lunchbox dvd set (AnthoerUniverse)

Those lunchboxes did infact exist. They were part of the 2000 BMG/AnotherUniverse MSCL Special Edition. Note that the newer Shout!Factory release contains completely different bonus materials.

Of course I can't say anything about the reputation of this particular ebay seller.

Re: Parenthood

"Parenthood" is definitely one of those rare shows which actually lived up to the hype. Great cast, amazing stories and realistic characters. And I totally agree, there's a lot of "MSCL déjà vu" in the episodes, especially when Amber (some kind of Rayanne?) and Haddie are involved. Haddie even dyed ...
