Netflix Recommendation: Freaks and Geeks

Sam and I just recently got to experience the cult favorite, Freaks and Geeks. Lasting only one season, the series is written by Judd Apatow of Superbad and Knocked Up fame. This high school drama is so painfully realistic it has you wanting to laugh and cry at the same time. I am completely in love with all of the characters in their own way. The typical players are all represented...the jocks, the cheerleaders, and of course the freaks and the geeks. Breakout roles for James Franco and Seth Rogan. Trust me, you'll love it. I can't believe it got cancelled, but almost a decade later people are still talking about it...





Just for fun...then and now:

If you love Freaks & Geeks, then next on your list should be Undeclared! It's another short-lived series that's essentially the same as F&G (only freshman year of college), and has the same actors--rent it!!!

Yes! I watched that my freshman year in college. It's hilarious. I notices when I was looking at bios that all of the actors were on there as well. Hope you had a great thanksgiving...I'll lay low on the jokes;)
