Netflix Recommendation: Freaks & Geeks {Day 2}


Genre: Comedy

Number of Seasons: 1

What the show is about: It’s the 1980s and at McKinley High, there’s two different groups of teenagers, the Freaks with cool and charismatic Daniel Desario and tomboy Lindsay Weir and the Geeks with Lindsay’s shy younger brother Sam, gentle Bill Haverchuck, and self-proclaimed ladies’ man Neal Schweiber. The show chronicles the normal teen/adolescence problems any teenager goes through including acceptance, drugs, drinking, and bullying.

Why you should watch: What made Freaks and Geeks such a beloved series was how the show made the audience become so invested in what happened to all of the show’s characters. Whether it was Neal finding out about his father’s affair, Sam dealing with his crush, or Lindsay conflicting with who she wants to be, you were concerned about the characters and most of us identified with at least one of them.

Even though the show only lasted one season it still garnered a loyal cult following. What made the cancellation even worse was hearing the season 2 plans that Paul Feig had for every single character.

Show Rating: 9/10
