Freaks and Geeks

On Jan. 20, the SF Sketchfest hosted a panel discussion called ”Freaks and Geeks Speak,”which they claim is the most populous reunion to date of the short-lived but intensely loved TV series, Freaks and Geeks.

The afternoon show was moderated by comedian Patton Oswalt, who did a fine job keeping the ball rolling and tried as hard as he could to get cast member Martin Starr (Bill Haverchuck) to string more than a couple sentences together. But Starr was the only tight-lipped one. Linda Cardellini (Lindsay Weir), John Francis Daley (Sam Weir), Samm Levine (Neil Schweiber), Busy Philipps (Kim Kelly), Steve Bannos (Frank Kowchevski), Dave Allen (Jeff Rosso) and creator Paul Feig reminisced about injuries, hilarity and the bittersweet end to an 18-episode portrait of outcasts and weirdos in the early ’80s.

The cast dished a bit of gossip here and there—Busy Philipps and James Franco hated each other (Philipps says they’re friends now); Starr suggested the scene where he makes out with Joanna Garcia (Vicky Appleby)—Paul Feig managed to steal the spotlight with his real-life stories (he wore the Parisian jumpsuit and was upstaged by a magician in a disco contest) and his fatherly commentary about the unruly but brilliant cast of kids on the show. Mostly though, the panel proved that the series merits another viewing—this time with the commentary on.

  • Freaks and Geeks was an awesome show. I wish Martin Starr did more than just little cameos in Judd Apatow movies these days. He was terrific as Haverchuck. I’m kicking myself for missing that panel discussion (and it was hosted by my favorite stand-up too!), although it looks like a lot of the stuff they discussed on Sunday was stuff that was already brought up in the commentraks. I was lucky to buy the green yearbook version of the Freaks and Geeks box set before it sold out. It has several extras that aren’t on the regular version.
