The Best TV Show That Lasted Only One Season

“Freaks and Geeks” was set in the eighties and focused on the lives of teens at a high school in a fictional suburb of Detroit, Michigan. Sadly, it only lasted one season, 18 episodes. It was never a ratings blockbuster, but frankly NBC gave up on it way too early. As you can see in the picture, it featured a number of actors who went on to become quite popular in Hollywood.

It wasn’t just the hilarity of the geeks, or the freaks for that matter that made this show shine, but it also had a lot of heart. Most of that four chamber organ came from the Weirs. An average middle-class family with a brilliant daughter trying to find her place and a nerdy, undersized son going through puberty and obsessed with the pretty cheerleader.

I write all of this because just came out with a list of the 15 most memorable “Freaks and Geeks” moments. Some of them contain clips, while others don’t. If you’ve seen the show before, take a look back and enjoy. If you haven’t, I actually recommend taking the series in first. That way you won’t be spoiled and honestly, you’ll be better off watching one of the best shows ever produced.
