talking about autumn, here are some more teen favourites, in moving pictures this time. most teenie crushes don’t stand the test of time, as i expect would be the case for sweet valley high were i to read it again, but these … i still have much love for these ones and i know for a fact that they have aged pretty damn well. press gang hooked me during some very formative years, it would seem (i became a hack and moved to england, didn’t i), while northern exposure is what my village should have been, up north with the snow and elk. my so-called life is very probably the best teenage drama ever made, and star trek is … undeniable. and yes, sometimes i put stuff like this on in the background while i do other things. it feels a little shameful to admit for some reason, maybe because i usually loathe nostalgia. but every now and again i find myself reaching for it, looking for it to ground me. so there, i’ve said it, i’m out and proud.
