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

Added DiffLines:

* PeriodPiece: Deliberately set in 1980-81 to avoid the tendency of teen shows to fall into UnintentionalPeriodPiece.

Added DiffLines:

** A slightly less excusable example is Nick eating Fruit Roll-Ups in the episode "Kim Kelly Is My Friend." The show takes place in 1980-1981. Fruit Roll-Ups wouldn't be introduced until 1983.

* VerySpecialEpisode: "Chokin' and Tokin'" deals with marijuana. Probably a StealthParody, as anyone remotely familiar with the effects of marijuana can tell Lindsay is just freaking out because she's not used to it.

* FakeOutOpening: The pilot has a small one, with hints of a TakeThat to boot. The camera focuses in on [[TheBeautifulPeople a jock and his cheerleader]] sitting in the bleachers during football practice trying to ham up their non-existent melodrama. Soon after, the camera introduces us to the real heroes of the show, conversing underneath the bleachers.

A 19992000 {{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.
