It's the 1980s and at McKinley High, there's two different groups of teenagers, the Freaks with cool and charismatic Daniel Desario and tomboy Lindsay Weir and the Geeks with Lindsay's shy younger brother Sam, gentle Bill Haverchuck, and self-proclaimed ladies' man Neal Schweiber. The show chronicles the normal teen/adolescence problems any teenager goes through including acceptance, drugs, drinking, and bullying. Written by

Series producer Judd Apatow told Vanity Fair in 2012 that whenever he sees an opportunity to use anyone from the show he does. It is his way of refusing to accept that the show was canceled, and that all of his subsequent movies are the continuous adventures of those characters. See more »
At the end of the opening credits, a yearbook shows Nick, Lindsay, and Sam's pictures listed in a row. However, Nick's last name is Andopolis, and Lindsay and Sam's last name is Weir, meaning they would have been in opposite ends of the yearbook. Also, Lindsay and Sam would not be placed near each other, as they are in different grades (she is a junior and he is a freshman). See more »
Dad is right - I'm part of this family.
Hear that, Jean? I was right about something. Maybe we should take a picture of this moment.

Freaks and Geeks, like too many shows with a lot of potential, was shown here in Australia in a ridiculous time-slot and never had the chance to build an audience of any size. Pity, cos it was one of the best shows to come along in years. In 1980 (when the show is set) I was around the same age as a lot of these characters, and to me it caught the flavour of the era authentically. Was I freak or was I a geek? What do you think? Across the board great writing, casting and acting. I think there's a few future stars on show here. Also cool use of appropriate music. Not just the predictable (Styx, Rush), also the unexpected (a track from XTC's "Black Sea"!). Shows someone knows what they're talking about! And any show that featured Kevin Corrigan AND Rushmore's Jason Schwartzman in the same episode HAS to be cool, right? Hope this re-runs one day...
