Freaks and Geeks - Homecoming

I finally finished watching all five discs of My So Called Life (disc six doesn't count, it's all extras...can you imagine my horror when I realized that I had just watched the last episode ever and there was no more? I cried. I mean really, Angela just rides off into the sunset with Jordan and leaves Brian in the dust after that letter he wrote? And does she ever become friends with Rayanne again? The suspense, people!)

Either way, now that I'm done with THOSE assholes, I've moved back on to Freaks and Geeks.

I became obsessed with this show last year, after never having seen it before in my life. I was told over and over how amazing it was but could never understand why. I then pilfered Lesty's DVD collection and watched the entire series in a week. Every night before I went to bed I just HAD to see what was going to happen next.

One of my favorite scenes EVER is this one, the Homecoming Dance. Sam is the perfect little faggy freshman in his suit, and he's so awkward it's delicious. Plus they're playing Come Sail Away by Styx, which is STILL a total hookup song to me. Ha!

I LOVE that show. I was so bummed when it didn’t get renewed for a second season, so I just resorted to buying the DVD set and watching it over and over. I haven’t watched it in a few years, I may have to resurrect it! I love Lindsay (and Daniel Desario, of course.)

That scene at the end of the first episode is one of my favorite scenes of the entire show!

come sail away is so NOT a hookup song for me. they played it my aunt and my mom's funerals. basically, to qualify as a member of my family, you have to respect your styx.

Those are two of my favorite shows ever. They also have two of the best final episodes ever.
