Also, I think that marraige proposals that happen during gardening or memorial hikes at summer camp are generally not successful. A little pre-meditation ensures greater promise. Oh, Sharmen....

Yeah, she's kind of trying to fix her mess-up with Carmen still. She just wants to make her happy again, pretty much. Just like, with the whole fire-extinguisher-ing and "I dreamt you flew away, you bitch!". She pretty much kept punishing her for one mistake/being herself and she felt. like. helpless. But she didn't give up, she had to try and fix it. So I buy/understand that. I dunno if she'd just blurt it out while Carmen's gardening, but hey, why not.

agreed. i think the introduction of the father as a device was retarded--shane has never listened to other people before, why would she start right then? if it was played as a lame cop-out, that would be fine--but it wasn't. It was played as a legitimate concern by Shane, and that is just well, dumb.

I think the inclination of a playa to get married to someone they almost lose is not improbable--i know many situations in real life in which that happens--almost like they can't handle any sort of in between, it's either SINGLE SINGLE or married. Also it could have worked if Shane and Dana's friendship had been established or developed AT ALL--as is, it seemed like a weak foundation for such a crisis. Surely Shane would recognize that her grief was not comprable to people like Alice, who actually had been close to Dana. WE are TOLD that Shane and Dana are close, but I don't think there was a single instance of them having a conversation without others present, and even then, only within the context of a hair salon.

Nice. *applause*

I couldn't decide if the seemingly random proposal or the wordless vanishing act was more crappy. I mean, pretty much as soon as Carmen accepts you know it's not gonna happen, and then with her dad's line 'that's just who I am' - that pissed me off, they just introduced him as a tool to get Shane to fuck Carmen over. There's just all this exposition in two seconds. "Where's Shane?" "Oh, she's off to find her dad. We didn't realize we needed this whole storyline that should have been in the last episode, so here's some awkward exposition!"

And I don't really buy that shane would be like, "oh, well, I'm obviously just the younger female version of my father, so if marriage doesn't work for him, it won't work for me. I'd better just walk away." Especially since she was like "I want kids" five minutes earlier. And then she didn't even talk to Carmen about it herself, and I don't see her as a coward. so that pissed me off too.

Anyway. Oh, I almost bought My So-Called Life on DVD once, but it was uber-expensive, so I got something else instead. Same way I almost got Six Feet Under the other day but then I was like "$260? Fuck that, I'll just get season 8 of south park"
