Trivia

Another instance of Samm Levine making John Francis Daley laugh when he wasn't supposed to is in this episode. In the cold open after Neal says it looks like Bill is having a seizure, there's a quick reaction shot of Sam barely suppressing laughter ( He even looks like someone caught him laughing and he noticed the camera), then letting some out, See more »

Goofs

When Daniel puts on the Black Flag album Damaged we are meant to believe he is listening to it for the first time. In a previous episode he is seen wearing a shirt with the cover art from Jealous Again, the Black Flag EP from 1980. It is unlikely that Daniel would own that shirt but never have heard Black Flag.

"See? I told you that thing would take him over!"
3 January 2018 | by Mr-FusionSee 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
