THE DIRECTORS SERIES (59)


1999
Freaks and Geeks
[ I remember stumbling on an episode or two of this ("Undeclared", too) on TV back in the day, but finally sitting down to watch this series now is particularly cool, as you can see all these future stars of Apatow productions: Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, James Franco... And Linda Cardellini and John Francis Daley, who are pretty much the leads here, are as endearing as it gets. Samm Levine and Martin Starr are also great, especially the latter, who might just be the funniest guy on the show. ]
