teen-drama Freaks and Geeks has found
its way back to its existing fan base and is ready to find some new ones.
Created by Paul Feig and executive-produced by Judd Apatow, Freaks and Greeks is a comedy-teen drama
that was first aired on NBC on September 25, 1999 till 2000. To relive its
earnest and awkward glory, fans can watch the complete series on the streaming platform
starting January 25.
And if you have already started binging it, here are some 20
viral memes and reactions for you:
This Charlie Chaplin meme is GOLD!
and Greeks offers an amazing 1980s American high-school experience
that is bound to trigger an overwhelming sense of nostalgia in you!
This 18-episode series was cancelled after 12 episodes, but
some vociferous fandom made broadcast possible of the remaining episodes which
had been already filmed. See, similar to its characters, even the show itself
is like an unknown high-school kid in the hallway, who is underestimated and
neglected by a majority but has a small bunch of loyal friends.
and Greeks is a career-making series for Seth Rogen, Jason Segel,
James Franco and more…its every episode is a crowing jewel!
The show features a mind-blowing cast consisting of A-list
Hollywood actors before they were famous; Linda Cardellini is starred as
Lindsay Weir (you might have seen her in ER and Mad Men), who is a good-natured
ex mathlete, often misunderstood by her parents.
Other “freaks” include Seth
Rogan as Ken Miller, James Franco as the cool yet decent Daniel Desario, Busy
Philipps as Kim Kelly and Jason Segel as a struggling musician Nick Andopolis.
Every character perfectly
portrays the frustration of teens, who are often misjudged by their benign
parents. The show is for all those who’re still missing high school and can’t forget
this golden era of their life. No, it’s not flooded with clichéd American
plotlines that start with homecomings and end with proms. The show just depicts
the minor and usual horrors of growing up with life’s changes, and it’s
Where to watch?
