"Freaks and Geeks" Appreciation Thread

I missed this show the first time around because I was too young for it, but after hearing so much about it over the years (especially with the Judd Apatow craze and the rise in fame of a lot of the cast members, and my love for all of them), I decided to put in my Netflix queue and check it out. My friends and I just finished the series a couple days ago, and we all absolutely loved it. How this show only lasted one season is beyond me. It was brilliant, hilarious, touching and so real. And anything with a brooding James Franco always gets a thumbs up from me. Is anyone else a fan?

Im a fan! . Watched the season a few months ago when Mike borrowed it from a coworker. Was honestly surprised by just how good the show really was. Would have been great if it had been picked up for more seasons. Loved Lindsay's dad!

James Franco

Such a fantastic show.

If you like this you should check out Undeclared, more of a comedy (and only a 30 minute show) but features some of the F&C/Apatow gang (including Seth Rogen and Jason Segel) and is REALLY funny.
There's a boxed set available.

One of my favorite shows.

I watched it every week and was in disbelief that NBC didn't stay with it. One of the biggest cancellation blunders in recent TV history.

I loved Undeclared, and was sad when it was canceled.

I remember watching this during its initial run and liking it a bit, then I re-discovered it on NetFlix about a year or so ago and loved it. Damn, nearly every character was likable and relatable in some way and it was just a blast to watch.

Bill and James Franco's characters were probably my favorites. Do you remember when Franco tried to go punk?

No love for Neil (sp)?



I used to think Millie was kind of cute, too.

Millie was awesome. I love the scene in the episode where Lindsay throws a party, and Millie sits down at the piano and starts playing/singing "Jesus Is Just All Right With Me" and Jason Segel jumps right in with her.

Neil was my least favorite of the three geeks.

Sorry.

Neil, the inglourious basterd.

Always found Millie to be annoying, but that Segel moment was awesome.

Doobie Brothers FTW.

Though Come Sail Away at the dance and Segel drumming to Rush moments probably top it.

And Segel playing "Lady" for Lindsay and singing along horribly, and her being super embarrassed but afraid to show it.

Lindsay and Sam's parents were awesome. As was Kim Kelly.

And you can't forget Biff as the gym teacher who hooks up with Bill's mom.
