News & Interviews for Freaks and Geeks: Season 1
It's worth watching just to see baby versions of people like James Franco, Jason Siegel, Seth Rogan, Busy Phillips, and others, but it's also a genuine take on high school and the constant need to feel like you belong.
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.
Freaks reminds us that we're often closest to our true selves when we're alone and not performing for our peers, particularly during our painfully self-conscious teen years.
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.
