"i don't know, what are you gonna do?"
i don't know about you, but i'm pretty excited about the dvd release of the complete series undeclared.
last year, robyn introduced me to the brilliance of freaks and geeks. i can't say that i've seen many tv series that were written to portray what the show was actually about...in this case, high school (even as much as i love dawson's creek, it's not anywhere close to being an accurate portrayal of high school). the writing is amazing and the characters are realistic. they're not gorgeous, perfect, beautiful people, they're normal, real kids in real situations.
undeclared was created by judd apatow who was a writer for freaks and geeks. i've heard great things about this show. if they could do for college what freaks and geeks did for high school, i'm sold. so i'm pretty excited about the series coming out on dvd on tuesday...so excited in fact that i just preordered it for really cheap. i really hope it doesn't disappoint.
some of my favorite freaks and geeks quotes...
Lindsay: Millie, you're eating candy already? It's only 7:30 in the morning! Millie: It's just Lik'm'aid. It makes my spit taste like fruit juice!
Kim: You guys, I killed Millie's dog.
Ken: Like, with your bare hands?
Daniel: You guys know Lindsay?
Nick: Yeah, you were in my English class last year. You were the chick that got an A, right?
Lindsay: Yeah, well, what are you gonna do?
Ken: I don't know. What are you gonna do?
Nick: Wow, that dinner smells good. Let me guess... meat?
Neal: My mom says women prefer guys with a good sense of humor.
Bill: But, uh, you're not funny.
Neal: Screw you, I'm hilarious!
Ken: [about Tuba Girl] That's not playing an instrument! That's like blowing into a toilet!
Lindsay: Sounds better than your singing!
Ken: Lindsay, here's an idea - how 'bout you break up our band so you can go make out with Nick? Oh, wait, you already did that.
Sam: Uh, dad, can I have an Atari from my birthday?
Harold: An a-what-i?
Jean: That's one of those expensive video games, isn't it?
Sam: No, no! It's not expensive!
Harold: Oh, well, the welfare lines are full of those video game players.
Neal: The dance is tomorrow. She's a cheerleader, you've seen Star Wars 47 times. You do the math.
