      Audience Reviews for Freaks and Geeks: Season 1

      • Sep 08, 2023

        Extremely well written show that discusses both relatable and mature topics. Shame it was canceled.

      • Jun 05, 2023

        Should never have been canceled. Funny, fresh, endearing and moving. One of the best TV shows in history.

      • Apr 24, 2023

        LOL, the funniest 18 single-season sitcom episodes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Mar 29, 2023

        Started the tradition of watching this every summer a few years ago. Can't wait for this summer to rewatch again. An Alltime classic and alltime great show. 9.7/10

      • Dec 14, 2022

        Freaks and Geeks lampoons real-life adolescence while affectionately embracing every growing pain along the way with refreshing honesty.

      • Nov 25, 2022

        It still holds up :)

      • Oct 20, 2022

        Freaks and Geeks was probably too good for network television at the time. The entire cast absolutely nails their performances. Bill Haverchuck (played to absolute perfection by Martin Starr) is, in my opinion, the best character written for TV.

      • Sep 19, 2022

        Hate this show so much. So unfunny. So predictable. So Judd Apatow.

      • Sep 11, 2022

        a really awsome highschool classic

      • Feb 14, 2022

        This is the best TV show I have seen in my life. Full review might be coming soon.
