News & Interviews for Freaks and Geeks: Season 1
Freaks and Geeks is tapping into something primal: adolescents' hunger to begin to understand themselves and their world. Freaks and Geeks is too honest to offer answers. But it affirms the value and the universality of asking the questions.
The young actors are natural and convincing, and the high school characters manage to be funny without too much Dawson's Creek glibness.
Freaks and Geeks is that wonderful rarity among television series, a show that simultaneously lampoons reality and embraces it.
This show only produced 18 episodes, but it's been lauded and beloved for 16 years since its unceremonious axing.
The show deals with situations that we can all relate to. It is a very rare thing to see a television show with such love for its characters and its world - a true gem.
