Overview

It may have been taken off the airwaves tragically early, but thanks to Shout Factory's feature-packed release of Freaks and Geeks: The Complete Series, fans can now own a comprehensive collection of the entire run of this criminally unseen series. Sporting some of the best writing on television and offering one of the most realistic portrayals of high-school life ever to hit the small screen, Freaks and Geeks' endearing blend of comedy and character-driven drama earned it a special place in the hearts of viewers -- and it may well have flourished on the small screen had the networks give it a chance to find its footing in the vast television wasteland. Presented in 1.33:1 full-frame, the image is clean and the colors evenly balanced. Sound is presented in closed-captioned Dolby Digital 5.1, and though there is little room for directional effects in such a dialogue-driven show, the audio is clean, solid, and free of hiss or distortion. If fans still feel somewhat jilted regarding Freaks and Geeks' all-too-brief television run, the inclusion of an abundance of bonus features will no doubt offer a glimmer of vindication. To put it bluntly, this set is packed -- virtually overflowing with an abundance of informative and entertaining extras. Commentaries feature nearly everyone involved in the production of the series (including "in character" commentaries by the actors who portrayed teachers) and are nearly as entertaining as the shows themselves. Though they may not offer much in the way of technical information, they are certainly a testament to the wealth of creativity involved in the show. Outtakes and deleted scenes range from the incidental to touching little character moments, and are also frequently accompanied by commentary. Casting auditions offer fans an amusing look at the actors as they get in touch with their inner misfits. An informative booklet rounds things off nicely with a detailed essay by series creator Paul Feig and a revealing Q & A session with writer/producer Judd Apatow -- naturally accompanied by numerous unflattering photos.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Freaks and Geeks resides in the pantheon of network gems cast aside early, to the awestruck dismay of wronged fans, alongside My So-Called Life, Firefly, Manimal…. Okay, maybe not that last one, although Freaks and Geeks did take its network shot on NBC's Saturday night schedule in 1999, the same night and network where Manimal had failed to draw enough viewers in 1983, despite featuring a handsome crime-fighter who could turn into all sorts of beasts at will. No, none of the Freaks or Geeks had superpowers at all. In fact, they were the sorts of powerless high school kids TV series rarely focused upon, the kids who would be seen from the back as they dug in lockers, in series like Popular or Beverly Hills, 90210. Created by Ben Stiller Show veteran Judd Apatow and writer-director Paul Feig, the show is set in suburban Detroit of 1980, and the soundtrack overflows with rock staples from the period. Linda Cardellini shows the spunk and smarts that made her a shoo-in as Velma for the live-action Scooby-Doo a few years later, and is pivotal in the ensemble as Lindsay Weir (a "Freak"). Joe Flaherty and Becky Ann Baker portray her parents, while John Francis Daley costars as Lindsay's younger brother, Sam (a "Geek"). Lindsay's dreamboat is Daniel Desario (James Franco), whom she agrees to tutor in "Tests and Breasts," with surprising results. Sam gets to shine along with his geeky pals Bill and Neal (Martin Starr and Samm Levine) in the hilarious "Carded and Discarded," in which the trio attempt to woo a pretty new transfer student -- they saw her first -- away from the popular kids. The season-closing "Discos and Dragons" episode earned Feig an Emmy nomination for Best Writing in a Comedy, and its balance of the bitter and sweet couldn't be more perfect. The episode closed out Freaks and Geeks' run on July 8, 2000, with three unaired programs still in NBC's closet. The episodes eventually aired on cable's Fox Family Channel later that year and are included in this DVD edition, which offers the entire production run of 18 episodes plus lots of fan-friendly commentary and extras.

    more from this reviewer

    Hilarious

    Never heard of the show but you might recognize some of the actors and actresses. Has some hilarious and sad moments. Sad that it got canceled but the ending to be honest was a little disappointing.

    Freakin' Comedy Classic

    Judd Apatow's "Freaks and Geeks" is a must buy for people who enjoy his movies or his other TV show "Undeclared."
    "Freaks and Geeks" is a very funny high school comedy, unfairly cancelled but in no way forgotten.
    It deservedly enjoys both high regard and a weird cult status, given how it was the launching pad for so many successful careers. Of course, you already know all about this one.
    Watching these discs it's hard to understand how this show wasn't an enormous hit first time around. The episodes are worth watching and re-watching and the special features are great fun.

    Cool Gift for Cool Mom

    I got Freaks and Geeks for my mother for Christmas. Its one of those sitcoms that didn't last very long (only one series), but can be considered a hidden jem. Also its got a lot of cool actors when they were young, so its good trying to pick them out. Its about childhood in the eighties, so the nostalgia level is up there too. Enjoy.

    Love it!

    I loved this show when it aired. I felt like I could relate to Lindsey. I had to buy this as soon as it came out. It always stinks when your favorite show only has one season and/or gets cancelled. It is great how most of these actors are the new faces of a lot of comedy movies.

    awesome

    It's always been that way for me, if I like the show, it gets cancelled if I don't it airs for years. Freaks & Geeks defines a generation indeed. The nuances are incredibly mastered here. Besides the fact that many young stars were born on this show it comes as no surprise that bigger things were ahead for them. The cult here lies in the original writing. A masterwork of the DVD medium.

    I hate teen shows

    Im a 17 from NZ and I have to say I hate nearly all tv from the teen genre. However there was something different about 'Freaks and Geeks.'I was 13 when it was on and I watched every episode. For some reason it was quite unique to me and I guess that must have been why it didnt succeed-it didn't appeal to the lowest common denominator. I read in the US it was canned with some eps still to go.We were fourtunate enough to see the whole series due to its popularity here. If you like good tv I urge you to get this DVD of a great show and more.

    The best TV DVD set I have

    Being teens in the 80s, my wife and I have really been enjoying this DVD set. The picture and sound are great. I remember NBC hyping the heck out of this new show back in '99, then cancelling it with 3 episodes still to go. What a bunch of morons.

    Takes me back...

    ... to high school. I wasn't a freak or a geek but knew people from both sides of the spectrum. This was a brilliant show and I wish NBC had been more behind the series to allow it to continue. Even my daughter, who's 14, loves the series (and you know how fickle they can be) and takes it w/ her to friend's homes when she spends the night so they can watch it. Anyone who has been in high school can relate to this series and laugh. Nothing's really changed, you know, only the names, clothes, hair styles, and music - the theme never goes goes away!!!!!

    The Greatest Show in the history of television

    Freaks and Geeks is the funniest, most realistic and fun television show I have ever seen. I own the dvd and love it because it has tons of extras and all 18 amazing and hilarious episodes. It stinks that this show only lasted a season, i guess it was too smart, funny and realistic for the stupid "I only watch 90210, and the O.C. crowd." Man, those shows suck, watch F&G NOW!

    A Nostalgic Must See!

    Finally! 'Freaks and Geeks' on DVD. This show deserved a much longer TV life, and now viewers are able to watch at will. The characters and storylines are achingly realistic......be prepared to live high school all over again. You'll laugh out loud and cringe in sympathy, but no matter what------you'll appreciate the intelligence and wit of the dialogue and superb acting talent of the cast.
