Goofs

Daniel Desario is shown sitting down and listening to the Black Flag song "Rise Above," and although it was originally recorded earlier to appear on a single, the song was not actually released until December of 1981 on the album "Damaged." Since the single season of the show takes place over the course of the 1980-1981 school year, this album would not have been released until halfway through the next year of school. 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
