Trivia

James Franco came up with the idea that Daniel should both have a terrible home life and seek a respite from it by taking on a Goth persona. Paul Feig loved this and immediately wrote a script that would focus on it. See more »

"See? I told you that thing would take him over!"
3 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

There's no such thing as a weak episode of "Freaks and Geeks", but there is an inferior storyline. In 'Noshing and Moshing', it's Daniel's fall-out with Kim and his subsequent turn to hardcore punk in search for acceptance. The entire sequence fin the club just drags everything down. The music, the characters, none of it works for me.

It's Neil's side of things that really does work, as the show picks up the threads of his dad's infidelity. It's not just Neil that's affected, but Sam as well. Children are being asked to keep a secret from their elders, and the emotional toll is heartbreaking. The magic of this show is in the way the hard parts are laced with humor, and it's always a treat because of this.

7/10
