The complete series collection of legendary American teen comedy-drama TV series Freaks and Geeks on DVD (6 discs).
Created by writer-comedian Paul Feig (The Office, Bridesmaids) and executive produced by Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked-Up), Freaks and Geeks followed the Weir siblings-former math whiz Lindsay (Linda Cardellini of the Scooby-Doo feature films and ER) and her younger brother Sam (John Francis Daley)-as they navigated the perils and pleasures of a Michigan high school circa 1980.
What separated Freaks and Geeks from most other scholastic series was its brutal honesty-Lindsay and Sam, as well as their friends and parents, were given very human personas that showed failure, malice, indecision, and moments of great clarity. Likewise, the plotlines rarely offered pat solutions to the characters' conflicts-the show unfolded in a naturalistic manner, which was a welcome respite for viewers tired of flashy high school dramas. When combined with its smart dialogue and winning performances (the cast included SCTV veteran Joe Flaherty and Judd Apatow regulars James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, as well as the sublime and criminally under recognized Martin Starr), the show became a haven for fans of quality television, if only for a brief period of time.
