Funny, tender, achingly real. -- TV Guide

One of the most heartfelt and humorous TV shows of the past decade. -- Entertainment Weekly

Smart, well-written and brilliantly cast. -- Newsday

Format: Paperback
First the show was cancelled. Depression. Then the DVD's were released. Elation! Now the scripts are finally published. Exaltation!!! A great television show first starts with a great script, and Freaks and Geeks was (is) a GREAT televison show and it all started with the great scripts contained in this collection. Starting off with Paul Feig's perfect script for the "pilot" episode, this collection shows why Freaks and Geeks has become the golden example of just how good a cancelled television show can be. The scripts contained in this collection, all display the sense of humor, agnst, emotional ups and down , truthfulness and most importantly, heart, that carried through every episode of the finshed, televised program.

These scripts are a must read for fans as well as any budding scriptwriter. Hell, these scripts should be mandatory reading

for all aspiring writers as well as any writer currently working in television, (unless you currently write for the Simpsons or Arrested Development..)

As a complete Freaks and Geeks fanatic (my favorite show!), this book was utterly amazing. It allows for even greater appreciation (if that's even possible) of the genius writing, acting and overall concept of this lovely series. I also greatly enjoyed the 'scrapbook' pages.
