Storyline

The course of love doesn't run straight. Ken's new girlfriend Amy, a tuba player in the school band, reveals something about herself that throws him for a loop. At the same time, Sam realizes that dating Cindy is different from imagining dating her. As Ken and Sam think about breaking up with their girlfriends and seek advice from family and friends, Mr. Rosso arranges for Lindsay to ask the first question during Vice President Bush's visit to the school. Her parents hope it's a way to get attention to the family sporting goods store, Lindsay wants to ask something interesting, and Bush's aides have something else in mind.

Freaks and Geeks, Episode 17 titled The Little Things...
10 February 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Before watching this brilliantly insane episode, go here ---

http://www.harpers.org/DontHaveACowMan.html

and read that website from top to bottom. Freaks and Geeks, this episode is a Judd Apatow reel! Mr Apatow is putting irony and wit into US comedy that's so sharp it could slice every blade of grass in your lawn by exactly half! Respect to the man whom a few years ago now, made it possible for The Larry Sanders Show to stay on the air. Larry was the Spinal Tap of television. I'm sure, as with anyone who caught this show, I don't need to say it was nothing short of genius. And in regard to the above website where Judd Apatow becomes 'Artie' and Mark Brazill becomes that 'corporate cock sucking network exec' who came from upstairs to regurgitate the same 'sickly crap' over and over until all you had on your hands was a smelly office and dud sitcom to clean up!

It's also worth noting that this episode in question of The Larry Sanders Show is the one when Artie lands 'one' on the networks hound face, literally. Knocking em for 6. Mark Brazill (among many others) fell uncomfortably in the late 90's and are all being nursed back to health by Domino's Pizza sponcerers, Walmart and KFC... But, the jokes on him. He would never get them to deliver to the place, far away, where is career currently is...on the Third Rock From the Sun!

Hollywood vs all the Jud Apatow's...
