Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful television show without losing her mind.
It's the 1980s and at McKinley High, there's two different groups of teenagers, the Freaks with cool and charismatic Daniel Desario and tomboy Lindsay Weir and the Geeks with Lindsay's shy younger brother Sam, gentle Bill Haverchuck, and self-proclaimed ladies' man Neal Schweiber. The show chronicles the normal teen/adolescence problems any teenager goes through including acceptance, drugs, drinking, and bullying.Written by

Some differences between the master copies of the show, and the versions that aired:
In the first episode, when we first meet the freaks, the background music playing is the song "You Really Got Me", instead of "Runnin' With the Devil".
Also in the first episode, there is a scene added in which Kim comes up to Sam, and jokingly asks him if he wants to kiss her. Sam stops, not sure what to say. Kim then pushes him away, saying "In your dreams, geek!" This scene occurs right before Lindsay asks Eli if he wants to go to the dance with her.
In the episode "Noshing and Moshing", the song that plays during the final montage is "Only Love Will Break Your Heart" instead of "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You".
This show was without a doubt the BEST new show on Television. It actually gave a new meaning to television and introduced wonderful and funny characters. The cast is perfect and the writing and acting is so great, there was nothing wrong with the show, in fact it was about 10 times better than some stupid sitcoms still on TV (some not all). Bill Haverchuck, played by Martin Starr is probably my favorite character because he was a interesting and funny character. The only problem was that NBC didn't give Freaks and Geeks a decent time slot. It was so unfair.
Get the DVDs, you'll LOVE them!
