    • 7 Pages

    The critically acclaimed show Freaks and Geeks is a shining example of a TV show that ended far too early. Freaks and Geeks was a show that captured the awkwardness of adolescence, as opposed to the romanticized and nostalgic view typically portrayed on TV. Shortly after Freaks and Geeks ended, a spiritual successor arose in the form of the show Undeclared, created by Judd Apatow, a producer of Freaks and Geeks.

    Freaks and Geeks was a rarity in the early millennium of television. Existing in a hyper-dramatized era of film and television, the witty series effectively captures the awkwardness and angst of adolescence with simplicity and humor, reflected even in the very first episode, which I have screened. The episode mainly utilizes conventional formal elements, and it makes sense: to capture the reality of teenagers in suburbia, using conventional norms in areas such as lighting and editing masks…

    When we think of the words nerd and geek, we think of a smart person with freckles and thick-framed glasses. They are usually bullied by the athletic people of a school and are at the lowest rung of the social ladder. But why do we also think about that same person being harmed and ridiculed? Why can’t we praise their intelligence and use it to improve our society? These questions are argued in Leonid Fridman’s “America Needs Its Nerds.” In order to do this, Fridman uses rhetorical strategies…

    I am a huge, huge nerd. I’ve never cared about sports, or what’s hip now, or that cool new musician. I’m all about video games, particularly indie dungeon crawlers and first person shooters. I listen to old 80s rock and EDM music. My family and friends shaped me into this person, and they’re the reason there’s an essay here at all. Nerdiness runs in my blood. My Great-Grandfather played Legend of Zelda and Sims. My parents are therefore, of course, nerds. Different, and more old school, but…
