Feig's everlasting comic classic is a tour de force of art when it comes to set an example of cutting through the dogmatic commercial views. The passionate bulletproof love of Paul Feig, the creator, for the 80s is a profound poetry that is visible in his keen eye on the details of the conversations. From references that SHOULD come in handy to the complete makeover in their vocab that shines light on the journey that warps us back a couple of decades ago, Judd Apatow and Feig has created an ultimate teenage treasure where each cast is so invested and reflective in their performance that they have managed to make it big easily in their later days.
But despite of having such an absorbing performance from the cast members, even the younger cast that shows you the range which is not usually something you get to see, I would once again jump back to Feig's smoothness in his flaws. And he does have it, and it seems like he too knows it and embraces it in a way that the storytelling grows friction less and pulls out a much more meaningful and powerful note that it outweighs the flaws or distractions on the script.
This depiction of rebellious teenager and the lost-warrior-alike parents of theirs, in a rapidly evolving era has honesty in balancing the world- even the elders or teachers are humane, just as James Franco says once, "These old people also have bad people among them." Take the parents, for instance, each of our teenager hosts have some baggage in their house and as the series ages, the perspective changes and the three dimensional characters finally reveals and accepts all the sides of themselves, where you then, exhale victoriously as Feig explains or more correctly metaphorically notions the very existence or origin of these Freaks And Geeks that we all root for.
Noshing And Moshing
It is safe and probably why creates a jarring impact with excellent execution and editing, and fortunately it never grows funny even when there is humor involved, it shows how powerful the dramatic content is, that it never lets it take over.
