Freaks and Geeks was the show we all needed as kids, but rarely appreciated. It was arguably the most relatable and accurate depiction of our extreme teen angst, mixed with a desire to fit in. We only got one season of the show, and frankly we deserved more. If Freaks and Geeks was still running today, we’d still be watching it.
The show brought us many amazing quotes, such as:
The cast was also insanely star-studded, though we didn’t really know it at the time. Seth Rogen, James Franco, John Francis Daley, Busy Phillips, Jason Segel, Samm Levine, they all came together to produce one of the most iconic shows of our generation.
Freaks and Geeks ended in 2000, but 17 years later, it seems like they’re all doing great! A group of cast members got together to celebrate writer and director Judd Apatow’s 50th birthday.
Busy Phillips posted a snap of her, along with Samm Levine, John Francis Daley, and Martin Starr on Instagram, and it basically punched us in the face with nostalgia.
