The cult teen dramedy Freaks and Geeks
has one of the most rabid, addictive, and loving fan-bases of nearly any show from the late '90s. (Think Felicity
freaks meet Buffy
fans...that's how serious they are.) The show, which launched acting careers for James Franco, Busy Philipps, Jason Segel
, and more, met its cancellation after a mere 18 (glorious) episodes. Anyone who loved cheeky, Apatow-flavored stoner comedy was left bereft.
Well, Judd Apatow felt
your pain. The comedic god and Freaks and Geeks
producer, reunited the favorited teen gang for
's comedy issue, guest-edited by Apatow himself. Complete with guidance counselor Jeff Rosso and the fake ID-selling Jason Schwartzman, the William McKinley High School reunion is better than we could have ever
dreamed. While it is strange to see the now grown-up cast (and realize how many über successful actors were on the show), that same bit of nostalgia remains. (Also, even though he was a total weirdo, is it wrong that we still harbor a crush on Nick Andopolis?)
