Great show that ended too soon. Showing sometimes embarrassingly honest depictions of what it means to grow up while not in the "cool" crowd, the show is witty and heartfelt. You root for the characters because, if you're like me, you recognize part of yourself in them. The best of us start out as "freaks and geeks" - nothing to be ashamed of. :)
best show ever? seriously, i'm so pissed it was only 1 season. loved the writing, loved that the actors were actually (mostly) of high school age and looked the part, and dear god loved james franco. "tuuuba girl" - if you don't know what I'm talking about, you should probably watch it.
Hilarious show based on real-life events. Great casting (James Franco!). Believable, well rounded characters. DVD commentary is often just as hilarious as the show itself.
Cons: I can't watch just one episode at a time! Completely addictive, and my binges always end with the devastating realization that no more will ever come out of this show!
