What is a millennial’s worst nightmare? They just finished a TV show on Netflix and they can’t find a new one to start! If this nightmare is your reality, then worry no longer. Hit the search bar and look up Freaks and Geeks on Netflix; you won’t regret it.

Freaks and Geeks is a TV show that aired in 1999-2000 on NBC. With only one season, it is a quick watch, but don’t let the quickness fool you. The show is packed full of actions and emotions that we can all relate to.

The show is set in a suburb of Detroit during the early 1980’s. The main characters are all students of the local high school. But they are no ordinary students; they are the outcasts. The freaks and the geeks. They face the same problems we all face in our everyday lives as high schoolers.

Not only is the storyline relatable and interesting, the cast is full of today’s stars. Actors like James Franco, Jason Segel, and Seth Rogen all play important roles in the show. Watching these young future stars is very entertaining.

Freaks and Geeks is a great TV show that focuses in on the lives of unique high schoolers in the 80’s. So if you’re looking to start a new TV show, start watching Freaks and Geeks!
