Freaks and Geeks was one of those TV shows that has attained cult status since it was sent to an early television grave. It was the first time that we was many great actors and actresses that have since gone on to stardom. One of those actors was James Franco.
With news that the Bud Bundy-centered Married…With Children spinoff is rolling along ever so slowly, we decided to look back at 11 other TV standouts whose lives we’d love to catch up with, mostly with the original actors taking on the roles of course.
There aren’t many days when I get to type something as cool as the Freaks and Geeks cast is reuniting, but there it is. It’s been 15 years since the NBC drama finished its run, and in that time, the cast has gone on to numerous film and TV projects. Now, the cast is coming back together.
They are animated programs, coming of age programs, and everything running the gamut in between. These are shows that have stuck with us long after their 12-episode, 22-episode or whatever episode runs have ended and that we wish could come back for one last hurrah.
Even though Freaks and Geeks was cancelled after one short season, the ensemble would go on to be one of the most successful casts in TV history. And while the leads have been busy blowing up, many of the supporting actors have also made names for themselves.
Halloween is just around the corner. Each year, some of our favorite programs bring us Halloween-themed episodes. Luckily enough, a good chunk of these episodes come with clever costumes. This year we’ve culled some of our favorite Halloween episodes of our favorite TV programs to bring you a quiz highlighting our favorite referential costumes.
Earlier this week, Seth Rogen revealed he was recently in the same room as the guy who canceled Freaks and Geeks. Unable to help himself, he called him out for what happened.
Freaks and Geeks finished its run nearly fifteen years ago, yet it is still regularly watched as well as referenced in pop culture. This week, Seth Rogen got the ultimate revenge on the executive who ultimately decided to axe the series. It’s a story that should amuse anyone who every got through all 18 episodes produced for the series.
Expect both Other Space and Sin City Saints to hit the Yahoo Screen airwaves next year. At this point, Yahoo is saying they’ll all be released at once, so have your binge clothes ready.
Looking at the reunion photos of the cast of Freaks and Geeks, one thing is very clear. These actors definitely did not peak in high school, in spite of the fact that the Paul Feig-created comedy didn't make it through its freshman season. The whole cast got back together for an upcoming Judd Apatow-focused issue of Vanity Fair.
The first episode of Freaks And Geeks essentially drops the audience into the middle of a story. It doesn’t begin with a grandiose or life-changing moment, and it doesn’t pause to fill in the details. It just lets viewers watch, and through careful screenwriting, makes them understand. It’s not about what choices the characters make, it’s about why they make them and what they hope to get out of them.
Martin Starr, one of my favorite, and surely one of the most underappreciated and underused comedic supporting actors, has just signed on to do a guest spot on one of my favorite sitcoms, NBC's Community. The former Party Down-er and member of the "Apatow troupe" will be at Greendale Community College for (at least) one episode in the upcoming third season.
Judd Apatow, current A-list raunch director and one-time creator of brilliant but prematurely canceled television shows, has revealed a live Freaks And Geeks reunion is coming together for the 2011 William S. Paley Television Festival
IFC announced today that they have acquired the rights to air the excellent (but sadly short-lived) dramedy series Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. Both created by popular filmmaker Judd Apatow (before he was popular), neither show lasted more than a season on TV before cancellation.
I’m not really all that surprised to see that Busy Philipps has been signed on for a new series. She’s been keeping pretty busy (heh) since her F&G days. She’s had roles in a number of other shows, including Dawson’s Creek, Love, Inc, ER, and more recently, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She’s also been seen in some films, including He’s Just Not That Into You.
