When her parents go away for the weekend, Lindsay is in charge of her house, and Daniel convinces her to host a keg party. She likes him and can't say no. Sam fears the party-goers will trash the house, getting him in trouble, so he, Neal, and Bill substitute non-alcoholic beer for the freaks' keg. As the party unfolds, Sam removes all the glass objects, Neal seeks a way to be Lindsay's knight in shining armor, and Bill samples the real beer. Cindy shows up to dazzle Sam, Millie comes to keep her eye on Lindsay, and Kim throws a wrench in Lindsay's hopes with Daniel. When the revelers find money to get another keg, Lindsay knows she's sunk. Is big trouble inevitable? Written by <>

"Should've hired a magician"
16 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

If "Freaks and Geeks" is anything, it's coming-of-age; and 'Beers and Weirs' is the first real step in that direction. It's Lindsay's concerted effort to fit in by throwing a kegger while the folks are away - which spirals completely out of control in no time. But it's not the premise, it's the characters, and the interactions are pure gold (Seth Rogen, in particular). And Martin Starr firmly establishes Bill as the one-liner king. But Linda Cardellini is key to all of this as Lindsay comes face-to-face with a life that's all kinds of scary. It's funny, sad, and altogether well-written.
