how could it not be?
i will keep posting clips until people get curious enough to want to watch whole episodes and make themselves 90% cooler. you will also notice, as one of the few cool people on here pointed out in another post, how Sam looks a bit like hofo.
from back to the future!
(this is a good one)
cos i get it mixed up with That 70s Show, which isnt good.
is criminally unknown by uk people due to: only being shown once here
only having one series
only being available on dvd in america
It really isn't.
and it really is good.
annoying not all of them are on there, it starts on episode four i think. and tvlinks doesnt have it :-(
17, 45 minute episodes.
I must buy the DVD.
tons of outtakes and stuff on the dvd. tis one of my prize possessions. the last episode is a thing of beauty (as is most of it). the pearls of wisdom from sam's dad are enough to make the show amazing. such as:
Harold: Elvis didn't expectorate on his fans.
Sam: No. But he died on the toilet.
Harold: Well, that's paradise compared to where the Sex Pistols are gonna end up.
jumptheshark rating also demonstrates the love:
you know what happened? she DIED!
daniel desario playing D&D :-) :-) :-)
it's by the same team that made anchorman and 40 year old virgin and that. they also made a series called 'undeclared' about college life, more lightweight than F&G but worth seeing.
than any of those though. he peaked on his first series.
cigarettes, and do you know what happened to him?
HE DIED! CHOKING ON HIS OWN VOMIT!
reminds me of the vampire from sesame st for some reason
and the ending is near perfect
is in spiderman films
I've been watching it over the last few days, it's amazing. Just really warm hearted and funny, especially the Dad. It's not really a sitcom though, as there are no jokes really, I am smiling or laughing most of the time I'm watching it though. It's such a shame there are only 18 episodes, I'm going to miss it when it finishes. :(
the first scene is great, where it pans to the jock and his cheerleader girlfriend (of no relevance to the rest of the show).
Cheerleader: You seem so distant these days Brett, is there something I did? Cos, if there is I want you to tell me.
Jock: Ashley, it's just...
Cheerleader: I mean I'm ready to work through whatever it is we need to work through. But, we need to communicate. I need you to talk to me.
Jock: Ashley, it's just I love you so much, it scares me.
[Audience throws up]
And! Doesn't the bully look really like one of the Cribs?
That is all.
luckily now tons of kewl people have seen it cos they showed the entire run back to back on the last day of ATP vs fans :D
the last episode is heartbreakingly good...there are so many highlights... the disco episode, the punk episode...it's so GUD.
i'd never seen it before, but was certainly entertained for a short period of time between shellac and some other band
my favourite episode is when Ken dates that former hermaphrodite - watching them trying to get their heads around whether that's OK or not is hilarious. There's so many brilliantly drawn characters, and the actors are so well cast. Has anyone seen Knocked Up yet?
Knocked Up soon with a Q&A with the director and SETH ROGEN! Ken is my favourite character from F&G, along with Bill! I’m gonna be a geek and get them to sign my freaks and geeks set.
have you got the Undeclared box set? There's a Q and A with most of the cast and it's surprisingly funny and insightful. Both Judd Apatow and Seth Rogan come across as funny, interesting people. Plus Seth Rogen wrote the funniest Undeclared episode - the Truth or Dare one.
I think my favourite character in F&G is Harris, the actor is just incredible - the only other thing he's ever done is playing Dudley in Royal Tenenbaums.
he has my favourite line ever, they're having a discussion over what sort of sate sam should take cindy on, and it's the very first line after an advert break, the scene just starts with him saying really loudly in a ridiculous british accent "I'D TAKE HER TO A BROADWAY SHOOOW"
that they always go to for advice - he's normally sat on a wall. If you've seen Royal Tenenbaums, it's that kid that Bill Murray's studying - the one with the learning impairment and acute sense of hearing.
i like his constant bragging about his sex life, tis rather amusing
totally love this show. its one of those ones i can go back and watch time and time again. i have that yearbook edition dvd. ahhhhhyeah.
when it was released it wasnt that much. it was about $80 i think.
edition is awesome. I'm getting that signed. If only Paul Feig was there too. His books are funny too. Check 'em out.
