"Boy-butt patter!"

Whoohoo! My Freaks and Geeks box set arrived! Thank you, Amazon and the existence of the multi-region DVD player!

I just watched the first episode for the first time in years and God, it's so, so, so good. I was worried that I was looking back on the programme through rose-tinted specs, but really, it's just as fantastic as I remembered it being. Someone give Paul Feig and Judd Apatow the chance to do a new show! Please!

Now, I'm off watch some more (work? what work?). I may have to don my Parisian night-suit in honour of the occasion....

lord, even hearing the words "parisian night suit" is enough to crack me up. :)

Me too! You know Paul Feig actually had one himself in his youth?

I just watched three episodes in a row. I really want to watch more, but I think I have to take a break, not least because I have work to do....but the parisian night suit is calling me! Oh God, I'm watching them in order, but I think I might have to skip straight to that episode....

God, Kick Me is hilarious. And very cringe-inducing! My copy is in my parents' attic, with all the other books I didn't take when I moved in here, but I have the urge to dig it out. The bit about him dressing up in women's clothes and being caught was one of the most painfully funny things I've ever read...

i love love love freaks and geeks!

don't have a multiregion dvd player though so no boxsets for me :/ did have a fair few episodes taped back in the day but they apparently get overwritten mysteriously with episodes of richard and judy when you're not guarding them.

Seriously, a multi-region DVD player is really worth buying - they only cost about fifty quid and more than make up for it in all the cheap American DVDs you can buy. Plus! American TV show-box sets which are unavailable here! Some day I'll splash out and get the My So-Called Life one which has been on my Amazon wishlist for about two years...

And, I still have nearly all of F&G on video, so if you want them...

Parisian Night Suit!
God, Freaks and Geeks is exactly as good as I remembered it. I'd never seen the epsiodes with Joel Hogdson and Jason Schwartzman either (mostly because NBC bungled their time-slot so royally) so that was a treat.
