Freaks and Geeks Series

In some ways I'm glad I never watched this series on TV because I really enjoyed watching it over a week all at once. All the characters are recognizable from my high school years (which were a decade before this is set) and most importantly, over the 18 episodes, the characters change and grow. Characters who seem a "type" in the beginning, expand beyond that by the end, just like real people. The series deals with many common high school issues, like marijuana, disco, free speech, relationships, jocks & cheerleaders, leaving home, the Dead, etc. I might put it back at the bottom of my Netflix queue.
