I resemble that remark

Back in the day (you know, when dinosaurs roamed the earth), I enjoyed a vast variety of terrible television that fell into either of two categories. The first was the Wannabe category, and that included such cinematic masterpieces as Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place. (And before you ask, yes, I object to the remakes. Strenuously!) The second was the Close To Home category, and that included shows like My So-Called Life—which came out after I was an adult, but totally reminded me of my painful years in high school—and the short-lived but totally awesome Freaks and Geeks.

You can perhaps imagine my glee this morning to discover that the complete series of Freaks and Geeks on DVD is currently selling at Amazon for $37.49 shipped. Those of you who only know Seth Rogan via his movies, please go buy this immediately. You won’t be sorry.

Oh, my. Looks like all of My So-Called Life is available for a buck less, too. Decisions, decisions….


  1. Love, love, love Freaks and Geeks. Could not believe that they cancelled it after one season. And My So-Called Life was dead-on what I was going thru in high school. Ahh, memories! Oh, and I agree with your objection to the remakes of 90210 and Melrose!

  2. Ah, you’re a young one, all right. I’ll admit to this: my husband and I watch WKRP n Cincinnati on TVLand and reminisce. It’s embarrassing and hilarious that I can look at Bailey Quarters and say “I had an outfit like that!”

  3. Thanks to Daisy I now have the WKRP theme song in my head! I never got into Freaks and Geeks, but did watch My So-Called Life now and then. Maybe they should remake that? And maybe I’ll give Freaks and Geeks a try. Ah the possibilities as I await the next Entourage and Friday Night Lights seasons.

  4. We were older when we caught Freaks and Geeks being played on some station and fell in LOVE with it. Too much like our own school days! I like that “Sam” is all grown up on the series “Bones” now too.
