14 Television Shows That Fans Want To Return

Freaks and Geeks

The comedy/drama series “Freaks and Geeks” had a very short run: only 18 episodes were made and even fewer shown on television back in the 1999-2000 season. Yet, this show is still fiercely loved and had (and still has, thanks to its availability on Netflix in the U.S.) a cult following. In fact, several critics and top lists have called it one of the 100 Greatest Shows of All Time. Conceived as a counter to other shows in the 80s and 90s, “Freaks and Geeks” was a realistic portrayal of high school life in the 80s, with well-written and relatable characters. The show was centred on a teenager, Lindsay, and her younger brother who were in high school. Lindsay’s friends were the “freaks,” while her brother’s friends were the geeks. Many of the show’s fans wish that the series had lasted longer.
