Freaks and Geeks

In the cool damn christmas gift department, add the DVD for Freaks and Geeks. From the stellar acting, rockin' Joan Jett theme, crisp writing, and unparalleled appreciation for the foibles and intricacies of your average high school student, it is simply one of the greatest shows ever broadcast.

All right, all right, I know. It’s another Zeppelin album and quite frankly I could recommend every single Zeppelin album because they’re all the greatest albums of all time. But this one deserves special mention because it was the album that came out before “Physical Graffiti” and yet you may notice that the song “Houses of the Holy” is on “Physical Graffiti.” But wait, you say. The name of the album is “Houses of the Holy.” What’s up with that? Let’s just say that your friends in Zep recorded the songs for “Houses of the Holy” and they all rocked so heavily that they said, “We can’t put all these songs on one album, so let’s pick the best ones.” And “Houses of the Holy” didn’t get picked! And that song ROCKS!!! So, think about it. If “Houses of the Holy” didn’t rock enough to be on “Houses of the Holy,” then just think about how rockin’ the songs that are actually on “Houses of the Holy” must be. I know, it’s a little confusing but, trust me, you won’t be sorry you bought it the minute you hear “Dancing Days.”

Parent's gave it to me. 6 discs, all 18 episodes.
