Trivia

This episode, Millie says she is fifteen, however, in a previous episode, "Beers and Weirs" she offers someone who thinks they are drunk a ride home, which would mean she had to be at least sixteen. It's highly unlikely Millie would drive without a license. See more »

Goofs

Millie is seen wearing a tee shirt depicting the cover of The Who's 1994 box set, "30 years of Maximum R & B." This is an anachronism since the episode is supposed to be set in the spring of 1981. See more »

Great episode
10 October 2010 | by (New Mexico) – See all my reviews

This episode is a keeper...just to watch Martin Starr over and over again. He comes home from school, makes a grilled cheese sandwich and sits down to watch the Dinah Shore show with Gary Shandling...and just dies laughing; you can't help laughing yourself silly just watching him watching Shandling. Makes me miss both Haverchuck and Shandling.

The other story lines are also superb. The Lady L song, Millie trying to cut loose, Kim showing a little heart.

Joe Flaherty doesn't always have a lot to do, but it's a joy to watch him. He's one of oh-so-funny guys from SCTV. What a face. In this episode he listens to The Who and is horrified by the pornographic lyrics.

I'm a big fan of Freaks and Geeks and in this wasteland of current TV I'm glad I found this series on IFC
