Why this show was cancelled truly escapes me. In my opinion, Freaks and Geeks is the finest series to have ever aired on television. The characters are hilarious, but real, making it impossible to hate any of them.
The music within the series is excellent, featuring The Who, Van Halen, Supertramp and Queen, and the presence of special features, including bloopers, feeds the viewers' thirst for more when all 18 episodes have been watched.
Knowing that F+G's only holds 18 episodes is a real shame, but with the complete series, what does exist cant be cancelled or revoked.
...Never gets old, boring or tedious, but better with every watch.
Also a word to the wise, since Freaks and Geeks is American, and therefore is formatted to American/Canadian programming, a multi-regional dvd player may be needed for those outside of 'region 1' viewing. (Always check imports are 'PAL' compatible). Since freaks and geeks isnt, and i reside in the UK, it was necessary to purchase a multi-regional player. However, since such players are cheap and allow you to watch imports in the future...oh and the fact that Freaks and Geeks is a phenomenal series, it's more than worth it.
