Trivia

"Stripes" wasn't released until June 1981, so they couldn't be discussing the movie during the '80-'81 school year. See more »

Goofs

This episode is set in the spring of 1981 and Nick tells Daniel and Ken that he saw The Who live in Indianapolis two weeks prior. This is impossible because The Who never toured the United States in 1981 and The Who never played in Indianapolis until 1982. See more »

Quotes

Kim Kelly: You guys, I killed Millie's dog.
Ken Miller: Like, with your bare hands?

Great episode
10 October 2010 | by dscott53See all my reviews

This episode is a keeper...just to watch Martin Starr over and over again. He comes home from school, makes a grilled cheese sandwich and sits down to watch the Dinah Shore show with Gary Shandling...and just dies laughing; you can't help laughing yourself silly just watching him watching Shandling. Makes me miss both Haverchuck and Shandling.

The other story lines are also superb. The Lady L song, Millie trying to cut loose, Kim showing a little heart.

Joe Flaherty doesn't always have a lot to do, but it's a joy to watch him. He's one of oh-so-funny guys from SCTV. What a face. In this episode he listens to The Who and is horrified by the pornographic lyrics.

I'm a big fan of Freaks and Geeks and in this wasteland of current TV I'm glad I found this series on IFC
