Goofs

At the beginning, when Daniel, Nick, and Ken are sitting in the cafeteria, Ken references the television show "The Magic School Bus", which Daniel and Nick find funny. Since Freaks and Geeks is set in 1980, and Magic School Bus started in 1994, it would be impossible for Ken or the others to know about the show. See more »

Quotes

Kim Kelly: You guys, I killed Millie's dog.

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
