I happened to stumble across Freaks and Geeks for the first time in more than eight years the other night, and I immediately was reminded of how sad I was this series got cut after one season. Such a cool vision of the early 80s. Made it almost seem cool to have lived then. Below are a couple of scenes from the last episode of the series, “Discos and Dragons,” which in my opinion is one of the very best, if not the best.
And even though I hate hippies, the final sequence of the entire series wherein Lindsay goes to follow the Grateful Dead rather than attending an academic Summer camp speaks volumes to the spirit and vision of this series. It was an awesome ending to an awesome show that died well before its time.
