--> '''Lindsay:''' [[SarcasmMode God, how could I be so awful to actually suggest that you play an entire song correctly all the way through!]] God knows [[Music/LedZeppelin Zeppelin]] only play half of "Stairway To Heaven" and TheWho never even ''practices'' "Teenage Wasteland."

* TheAllegedCar: Kim Kelly's Gremlin, Nick's Maverick... It's 1980, it's Detroit, if the series had lasted pretty much every marginal American car from the '70s would've eventually shown up.

* AuthorTract: "The Little Things" is pretty much one long political ad. Somewhat understandable, as it aired a few months before the 2000 election

** The bullies and jocks are completely separate cliques--the bullies are mainly losers picking on others even lower on the social ladder, while the jocks are mostly just known for sleeping around. They can be obnoxious but few actually antagonize others. One example is Cindy's boyfriend Todd: he starts out as the RomanticFalseLead keeping Sam from dating Cindy, but turns out to be an unusually decent guy. There is a straight example, though, in Seidelman, the enormous football player who torments, well, just about everybody whenever he appears.

Part of what made ''Freaks and Geeks'' unique was that it was surprisingly immersive in its time period despite ''not'' beating things over the head with such "retro" tropes as ItWillNeverCatchOn and HilariousInHindsight; it was even sparing in its use of NothingButHits. The show was praised to heaven and back (making it onto ''[[Magazine/TimeMagazine Time]]'' magazine's "Top 10 New Shows" list) but [[AcclaimedFlop never quite took off]] in the ratings department, which led to its notorious cancellation after just eighteen episodes.[[note]]It actually topped the ''Magazine/TVGuide'' list of the shows that were cancelled too soon.[[/note]]

A {{Dramedy}} created by Paul Feig and Creator/JuddApatow for Creator/{{NBC}}, based on the former's experiences, about two groups of teenagers in the UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}} suburbs circa 1980. The "[[TheSlacker Freaks]]" are into rock (''not'' disco!), pot and just hanging out. The "[[{{nerd}} Geeks]]" are into comedy, the AV club, role-playing games and are just getting into computers. Lindsay Weir (Creator/LindaCardellini) is at the fringe of the Freak group, while her younger brother, Sam (John Francis Daley), is at the core of the Geeks.

Eighteen episodes were aired in 19992000.

Eighteen episodes were aired in the show's one and only season (19992000). Part of what made ''Freaks and Geeks'' unique was its retro setting did not rely on typical trappings like ItWillNeverCatchOn and HilariousInHindsight, and was even sparse in the use of NothingButHits. It was surprisingly immersive in the time period. The show was praised to heaven and back (making it onto ''[[Magazine/TimeMagazine Time]]'' magazine's "Top 10 New Shows" list) but [[AcclaimedFlop never quite took off]] in the ratings department, which led to its notorious cancellation after just half a season.[[note]]It actually topped the ''Magazine/TVGuide'' list of the shows that were cancelled too soon.[[/note]]
