FREAKS AND GEEKS

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - Brunch - - BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS -

Aired in 1999-2000 18 episodes

Why is this show from 17 years ago on our list? Be­cause it has been on mag­a­zine’s “100 Great­est Shows of All Time”, ranked third on its list of great­est tele­vi­sion shows of the 2000s and reg­u­larly fea­tures in ar­ti­cles about cult shows. Look at the early tal­ent among cast and crew: Judd Apa­tow writ­ing, Paul Fieg di­rect­ing, James Franco,

Seth Ro­gen and Jason Segel as high school­ers. The show fol­lows a book­ish girl as she at­tempts to loosen up with her gang of mis­fits, and her brother, a nerd, try­ing to get more pop­u­lar. Hence the ti­tle.
