Never seen it. Was it better than "Square Pegs"?

Grab a mitt and get in the game Todd! You are missing out. Thanks for the heads up on this WSH.

Todd's just being "fashionably ignorant." (With an emphasis on "fashionably.")

So wonderful, this is.

This quote from Apatow echoes exactly what goes through my head when I see a F and G alum in some other show/movie:
"Whenever I see an opportunity to use any of the people from Freaks and Geeks, I do it. It’s a way of refusing to accept that the show was canceled. In my head, I can look at Knocked Up as just an episode of Seth’s character getting a girl pregnant. All of the movies relate in my mind in that way, as the continuous adventures of those characters."

For once I'm being sincerely ignorant. I didn't see Freaks & Geeks when it first ran, and never got around to watching it on DVD. (This even though I was in high school during the time when the series was set, as I notice from skimming the Wikipedia article.)

I haven't seen "Breaking Bad" either. I'll watch both series just as soon as you all finish the entire run of my favorite show, "Commissario Montalbano."

I haven't seen Breaking Bad myself so I understand. But seriously, watch this show, it is only 18 episodes.

The only possible complaint I can think of is during one episode they showed some Atari 2600 games that didn't exist in 1980/81.

I was surprised that the article didn't mention Shia Labeouf being in an episode.

F&G is a very good show. Stream it on Netflix, you won't be disappointed. I wasn't really able to get all that into Breaking Bad. Dissolving bodies in muriatic acid by the third episode was a bit too dark even for me, but I'll probably revisit it at some point.
