Freaks and Geeks: The Complete Scripts

Freaks and Geeks: The Complete Scripts




"Relive the pain and humiliation of high school" in the only companion books to the acclaimed, Emmy® award-winning TV show, just released on DVD for the first time in response to extraordinary fan demand.

Though only airing for 18 episodes, the Dreamworks Television comedy/drama Freaks and Geeks (NBC, 1999-2000) earned extraordinary critical acclaim, and developed a devoted fan base that fought valiantly to keep it on the air. Eventually fan demand (an online petition of over 35,000 names) convinced the studio to release the series on DVD.

Created by Paul Feig and executive produced by Judd Apatow (The Larry Sanders Show), Freaks and Geeks followed the Weir siblings—former math whiz Lindsay (Linda Cardellini of the Scooby-Doo feature films and ER) and her younger brother Sam (John Francis Daley)—as they navigated the perils and pleasures of a Michigan high school circa 1980. Lauded for its brutal honesty and very human characters, Freaks and Geeks combined smart dialogue and winning performances, and its plotlines rarely offered pat solutions to the characters' conflicts.

These unique script books allow longtime fans and first-timers alike to enjoy the writing behind one of television's most poignant and funny programs about high school, with introductions and additional material by the series' creators. 15 b/w photos.

This volume, volume 2, includes episodes 10-18 of the series. Volume 1, sold separately, includes episodes 1-9.
