If you know me-
Then you know my love for this show runs deep. I was one of the geeks through and through. Man, did the early 80’s feels GET ME. I remember the utter disappointment when the show was CANCELLED (I’m not bitter…)
I remember the petition to have the show put on DVD (which of course, I signed with childhood glee) and had the opportunity to purchase the limited run Yearbook set- which I play through several times a year! But- now I find out that there is a Freaks and Geeks…VIDEO GAME? WHAT? and it’s on… YOU TUBE? And- it’s been out for… SIX YEARS? WHAT? Have I been living under a arcade cabinet? I’m gonna have to check this out… OK- it’s a choose your own adventure. That’s cool. But the links don’t seem to be working anymore (or- it’s my stupidity- let me know in the comments section!) But- it’s cool to look at! Check it out!
I should do an episode review of the show…
See ‘ya next decade, Arcaders!
Keep Playin’ Like It’s 1981!
I love Saturday morning cartoons almost as much as video games- it’s a shame Saturday morning isn’t treated with the same reverence it was when I was a kid (but thanks to networks like Cartoon network and The Hub, it’s getting a little better!) The next best thing back then to Saturday morning, was the Saturday Morning Preview! This would happen on a crisp Friday evening in September, the day before the season would start officially. It was always a huge gathering of kids, comics, ventriloquists, voice actors, and stars of the shows, and a host ( this time its Dick Clark!) But more importantly, the previews! Of course this the year Pac- Man got his own show – and we didn’t see that until the end (as we slid closer and closer to the TV after every commercial!) They also had previews of The Little Rascals and Mork and Mindy (I was a HUGE Mork and Mindy fan back then!)
So grab a bowl of of your favorite cereal, sit WAY TO CLOSE TO THE TV, and watch the 1982 Saturday Morning Pac Preview Party!
