Two of my favorite canceled-way-too-early series were Judd Apatow'sFreaks & Geeks
. What I loved about both of these shows were the quirky characters played by even quirkier actors (read: not your typical Hollywood Hunks). Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Jay Baruchel, and Martin Starr are featured in Apatow's latest movie Knocked Up
, also staring Grey's Anatomy
star Katherine Heigl. I won't go in to detail about the movie, but I just wanted to say that it's a great movie to see if you are a hardcore TV junkie like me. All my tv time paid off. In addition to Apatow's adorkable crew, lots of cast members from The Office
, (Steve Carrell as himself, BJ Novak as a gynocologist, and Craig Robinson as the bouncer) Saturday Night Live
, (Kristen Wiig as an annoying boss and Bill Hader as an editor/producer type), and Firefly
(Alan Tudyk as an E! Exec) make appearances, too.
Even if the movie isn't your cup of tea, I recommend both of Apatow's series because they're total love.
