[TV] F&G tests its limits

Watched 2 more episodes of Freak & Geeks last night. First, the Freaks rejected Lindsey and then the following episode has Lindsey rejects the Freaks. That second episode gave us a sense of the status quo in Lindsey’s life before the show started (something I felt was missing from the pilot). Both plots pushed F&G’s Situation to extremes, testing its vulnerabilities.

The double-bill had an epic feature film sense to it – with Lindsey as the solid dramatic plot and Sam very definitely as the sidelined comic relief.

Now it'll be interesting to see how the show handles its continuity here: the parents have forbidden Lindsey to hang with the Freaks and she seems to be defying them.
