Freaks and Geeks

fg_cast_11.jpg

Maybe the most underrated TV comedy ever… Freaks and Geeks aired from 1999-2000 on NBC. The hourlong show — sometimes called a “dramedy” — was critically acclaimed and won an Emmy in 2000 for outstanding casting for a comedy series. It was nominated for outstanding writing for a comedy series in 2000 and again in 2001.

I thought of the show because I saw an article about how a bunch of the cast members are in the new movie “Knocked Up”, written and directed by Judd Apatow who was the Exec. Producer of Freeks and Geeks.

What I loved most about this show was its realatibility… I felt like it was telling my story… an awkward and entertaining journey through puberty!

Watch this gem entitled, “You have a beautiful body…” I am going to track down some of the DVDs on Netflix right now.
