Since I starting watching Freaks & Geeks, I've had a few dreams where I was back in high school. In one such dream I was riding on the bus with James Franco's character, Daniel (he doesn't ride the bus anyway) and he was totally crushin' on me, but I was like "No way. I'm going to get married someday." I love that my dreams are still incredibly grounded in reality. I'm so sensible.
It seems that all my favorite shows are cancelled or they get cancelled and then return many years later (I'm looking at you FUTURAMA!). In my adulthood I'm discovering that most TV genius is not truly appreciated by the masses. How could pure brilliance like Arrested Development only last 3 seasons? Freaks and Geeks only one? It's unfair. I'm also wondering why these shows were on when I was in high school and really didn't watch TV? I would have been one more audience member! I would urge you to watch Freaks and Geeks. It's. just. so. good.
P.S. For those of you that fall into the "geek" category, F&Gs has the special bonus of including guest stars Joel Hodgson & Trace Beaulieu.
