The Education of Elizabeth Eckleman

I'm officially hooked on Dallas Observer music editor (and former Chron comrade) Sarah Hepola's ongoing serial, "The Education of Elizabeth Eckleman," which appears regularly in The Morning News. Sarah takes us through the tumultuous psychosexual development of an 18-year-old college freshman named Elizabeth and invites readers to vote on our protagonist's next course of action at the end of each installment. Her tone reminds me of a more dramatic take on Judd Apatow's ill-fated Freaks and Geeks follow-up, Undeclared. I can see Elizabeth Eckleman becoming a TV series, too. After all, every episode's a cliffhanger and her fate rests in your hands!
