Freaks and Geeks

12 Mar

One of the best shows on TV that should have never been canceled was Freaks and Geeks. C’mon the episode titles were even awesomesauce: Discos and Dragons, Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers, Noshing and Moshing, Smooching and Mooching, Tokin’ and Chokin’, Tests and Breasts, Beers and Weirs and I’m with the Band. It also catapulted the careers of Seth Rogen, Jason Segel and James Franco.

Daniel Desario, played by the seriously sexy James Franco was such a cool, charismatic burnout.  A punk and anarchist at heart. Desario knew how to wear that leather jacket just so. Sigh.

Daniel: Rock ‘n roll don’t come from your brain. It comes from your crotch.

SheRhaps: He said crotch.

Daniel: Am I a loser?

Harris: You’re not a loser because you’re having sex. But if you weren’t having sex, we could definitely debate the issue.

Daniel: Knock it off, blondie. You’re gonna blow the speakers.

Kim: Oh, I’m sorry, Grandpa. I’ll try not to blow anything of yours from now on.

Daniel: Lindsay… I think it’s really great that you and Nick are going out.
Lindsay: Yeah. Me too.
Daniel: No, I mean it. Nick’s a great guy. We give him a hard time, but you know… he’s the man. I just think it’s really great you guys are going out. He’s a really great guy.
Lindsay: Yeah, I know.
Daniel: Nick’s a stud. You know? I mean, he may not seem like it, but he is.

    I TOTALLY agree–I love that show & watch reruns of it on cable all the time!

    It makes me feel all warm inside. I also love the fact that SCTV’s Joe Flaherty is the dad. Who also stared with Kathleen Robertson in another great show from the 90’s Maniac Mansion –
