Vintage Geeky TV Crush: Noel Crane from Felicity

My college obsession with Felicity coincided with my obsession with Scott Foley's character, Noel Crane. Sure, Ben was hot too, but Noel was where it was at — a total geek who spent his time creating websites as a graphic design major and futzing with a Mac, Photoshop, and fonts — when he wasn't trying to win over Felicity.

Imagine my delighted surprise when I discovered that — the not-so-fictional website that Noel was working on on the show (a way bigger feat in 1998 than it is today) is still up and running! 'Noelscript' runs at the beginning, apparently telling you how to be Noel. Man geeks? Figure it out and start practicing.

Noel! I loved him. There were times when I couldn't choose between him and Ben haha. His geekiness was definitely a big plus!

I loooooove him. Very rarely, I still have dreams about meeting him and him being in love with me. (Sadly, I always miss that I'm dreaming and turn him down for my real-life Stedman.)

Haha, that's so funny that they still have that website up! Blast from the past. Yeah, I was always bummed that Felicity couldn't seem to make it work with Noel. Ben was more trouble than he was worth.

I always hated Felicity for choosing that loser Ben over Noel. Noel is the ultimate package every mom would love him! As soon as I get back home when college is over I'm going to watch all my Felicity DVDs.

I think he was the START of my obsession with geeky boys. I never understood why Felicity was all about Ben over Noel. Noel was cuter, smarter, funnier, all around At least in the first few seasons, from what I remember. It's been a long time...although, I think I know what I'm netflixing next! =)

It's funny you should post this because I've been on a Felicity kick all week watching episodes online. Noel is quite the package and I prefer him over Ben too.
