A must-see for any teen that grew in the late 90s/early 00's (I was 17-18 when this was on Basic cable to brutal ratings) and belonged to the freak-geek-emo-nerd-loner-fuck-up crowd/fringe. James Franco was our generation's James Dean. TV was King & Queen. Post-Cinema. Pre-Internet. Spoke loads to the collective US as few shows (and films) ever had; before, then or after. Undoubtedly Apatow's/Feig's creative summit.
