My new crush

Micah and I just finished watching the first and only season of Freaks and Geeks. Thanks to the Georges for recommending it to us. The show has some really great characters.

Initially I was in love with Sam ( I think it is because I looked like him when I was in junior high. Dimples, big teeth, wavy hair and skinny),



but as the show progressed I fell in love with Bill. He made me teary eyed a few times with how nice and genuine and funny he was.


It is possible we may have been the last people on earth to watch this series but if we aren't I highly recommend renting the dvd's and getting yourself your own crush.

Yes, I also love Sam Weir. I think that's how you spell it...
He turned into a total babe, too!

Tyler keeps telling me this series is brilliant! Maybe I'll rent the first season tonight.

I doubt you're the last people to see it. but man is it good.

the same group of folks did their next show called Undeclared. Same idea, only college instead of high school. not nearly as good, but still okay.

then, they've made a bunch of movies recently (knocked up and superbad) and if you guys are down with dirty, dirty, dirty, rated R movies (and I hope you are) you've got to see those flicks. they are the funniest movies I've ever seen (but they are foul in their use of the english language).

Yeah! So glad you found this sadly short-lived series. Todd and I love it! I'm also glad I found your comment on Jen's blog and remembered to find you again! It's been forever and now you will be added to the blogs I check! Just one more friend I can keep tabs on without having to pick up the phone:) The beauty of blogging! It's a heaven-send for us moms!

Hey Becky, do you have a blog? Send the address my way.

Oh, I'm so glad you watched this. I knew you'd be an instant fan. I, also, was in love with Sam. And Derek was in love with Bill. And you have to love Harris, the wise sophomore. And Sam's parents: I love them, too.

Did you know that Karen from The (american) Office was in an episode of F&G's? She was Kim Kelly's bully friend.

I think I'm going to spend the rest of my day watching Freaks and Geeks. Thanks for the suggestion, Bess!

Sandy,
I totally loved Harris too. And I couldn't help but love Sam and Lindsay's parents. Especially her dad. He cracked me up. Micah grew to really like Millie also. And even though Ken is such a jerk he is so funny.

Jeremy,
is one of those movies any less dirty? I really want to see Knocked Up.

Now THAT brings back memories of my junior high experience. People were saying pretty much that exact thing all the time...
