Storyline

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 Corey Semple (Hairsprayer07)

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Lindsay Weir: Dad is right - I'm part of this family.
Harold Weir: Hear that, Jean? I was right about something. Maybe we should take a picture of this moment.

It's a shame they took this off the air...
3 October 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I just started watching this show lately now that it's on Fox Family Channel. I saw one episode before, where the kid is the mascot for the basketball games and all. I love this show! I think it's one of the funniest shows I have ever seen in my life. The characters are the best of almost any series I have ever seen as well. I especially love Haverchuck...he cracks me up. The show deals with kids who are sort of outcasts in high school in 1980, and what outcasts they are. You have the rebel sister and the dorky brother in the main family in the show, and they both will make you laugh. I think the biggest laughs come from Sam and his friends. They are sort of geeky, but they try their hardest to be cool, and they talk constantly about getting chicks and how hard it will be. In one of the episodes, they think Neal's father is having an affair, and Haverchuck says," I don't even know how you get one chick, let alone two." or something to that effect. This is a great show, and it saddens me to see that NBC screwed it up with it's horrible scheduling and promotion. The show deserved much more of a chance than it had, because it's one of the best shows to come along in years, but leave it to the networks to screw up a great thing.
