The Show and This Board Hold Up

Post by JPP13 » Oct 19th 2020, 9:35 am

So for the first time in a couple of decades I decided to re watch the series in it entirety. I was nervous that it would not age, or rather I did not age well and the wonder of the show would be lost.

My concerns were unfounded. Was like discovering the show all over again, and realizing my earlier near obsession was worth it.

Almost on a lark I remembered this Board and decided to take a look. Happily I discovered its still here. After some digging around I found my old username and paasword. Going to spend a little time this morning reading through everything, feels very comfy still.

I first discovered the show a decade ago. I was single, 28 years old, in the middle of searching what to do with my life.
The show struck very near and dear to my heart, I was basically blown away. In a sense, it helped shape the man I am today - it taught me a lot about personal growth and human relationships, it opened me up.
I am now 10 years older, married+1, Significantly more mature, with a slightly different outlook on life. I have revisited the entire show over the last couple of months - it has lost nothing of its original charm and power. And again, it delicately and masterfully reminds me of the important stuff in human nature. Thanks to all those involved with this show for bringing it into our lives.

I would also like to give a huge, sincere thanks to everybody that was and is involved with keeping this MSCL haven going. MSCL is a small fire that burns in each of its fans hearts, and coming back here to share and read what others have wrote is a continued joy and comfort. No wonder most of us drop by here once every several years or so... when we get that irresistible MSCL itch :wink:
Lastly, thanks to the amazing community that made this place what it is, and generated an incredible amount of thought provoking insights and discussions. There's enough stuff here to fill a lifetime of MSCL fandom.

I sincerely hope all of you are doing well, wherever you may be.

Yeah, MSCL holds up extremely well even to contemporary tv shows! I have rewatched MSCL several times in the last 15 years and every time i see new things. And i sympathise more and more with the grown-ups, but that comes with age i guess :)
