When I was 15 years old and just beginning my Jason Segul obsession, I saw this show on his IMDB…. Good God was it the best discovery of my entire life. I can very vividly remember, late at night, smoking weed out of my ‘slush puppy turbo’ makeshift bong, making gigantic atomically correct ears out of clay (did you know that ears never stop growing? that’s why I was making gigantic ones… but that’s for another post I guess), and watching Freaks and Geeks on repeat.
I couldn’t find a single bad thing about this show if fukkin’ I tried. Where do I even begin…
The star studded cast perhaps? Linda Cardellini (that chick from ER). James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Martin Star, Joe Flaherty (one of the funniest men that has ever lived), Dave Allen… need I go on? All of these awesome people mushed into one show can create nothing BUT brilliance!
Let’s move on to the fact that this show was primarily written by Paul Feig and Judd Apatow. You might not recognize Paul Feig’s name.. but I assure you he is worthy of a mention. He has written for, directed, and been in movies and shows such as 30 Rock, Bad Teacher, Bridesmaids, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Knocked Up, Arrested Development, Stealing Harvard, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, The Office, Weeds, Parks and Recreation, and Undeclared – sorry, I love this man and feel the need to rant about him every chance I get. And Judd Apatow… well fuck… it’s fucking Judd Apatow! The man is a god. He deserves to be given free shit wherever he goes and be praised by every person on this earth for eternity – let’s just say that if I could put my tits in his face every day for the rest of my life, I would.
Freaks and Geeks was made in 1999 and is about teenagers in high school in the 80’s, every time I watch it I feel like I’m watching the prelude to Dazed and Confused (If you don’t know what Dazed and Confused is you need to leave this blog, we have no tolerance for you here) – During and after watching this show I always end up smoking lots of pot and reminiscing about being in high school for at least three days straight. So my suggestion is to do just that, relax with your friends (or by yourself if you’re a loner like me), get really fucking high and think about how great your life was when you were in high school.
Stay high readers,
