A classic that deserves to be better-known,

This review is from: Freaks & Geeks: The Complete Series [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)I'd heard good things about this series, which is set in a midwest town in 80s America. I wasn't disappointed - this is a cracking little show, and it's a shame it only lasted a season.
The talent have since gone on to do Good Things (Forgetting Sarah Marshall / How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel, ER's Linda Cardellini, Superbad/Knocked Up star Seth Rogen, etc.); here they are perfectly cast, pre-fame, as disenchanted high schoolers trying to work out who they're going to be. Follow Lindsay Weir, her younger brother Sam, and their Freak and Geek friends through 18 episodes of perfectly pitched teenage awkwardness - each one chock full of dark wit, pathos and just the right amount of nostalgia.
Well worth adding to your DVD collection.
