[TV] F&G: Now with Continuity!

Finally Freaks & Geeks develops an interesting storyline. The Lindsey/Nick relationship continues to form accidentally. F&G is now also mining a Fawlty Towers / The Office level of embarrassment that has me on the couch in the foetal position screaming for it to stop even as I’m remembering doing exactly the same stuff in college.

To develop this show, the writing team sat round a table for about a week discussing all the horrible things that happened to them in high school. The series creator, Paul Feig, provided roughly 80% of the material. If someone thought a plotline was too unbelievable, Feig provided proof it really happened.
