11 Reasons "Freaks and Geeks" Should Return To Television

One season was not nearly enough.

11 Reasons "Freaks and Geeks" Should Return To Television

I still remember the very first time I watched an episode of "Freaks and Geeks." It was recommended to me by my aunt and uncle who lent me their DVD box set. I was immediately hooked after episode one. In fact, I think I binge-watched all the episodes one weekend. With its all-star cast and brilliant dialogue, the cult classic quickly warmed its way into my heart. The show had a true grittiness to it, depicting the lives of real teenagers with real problems, like surviving high school and trying to figure out who you wanted to be in life. It created a world where outcasts of all different walks of life could co-exist. Ultimately, it was able to move you deeply and make you burst out laughing all at the same time. All of this causes one to wonder why the show only lasted one season. Although each and every episode was a wonderful thing, 18 episodes was far too short a life for the spectacular series. Created by the genius Paul Feig and produced by none other than Judd Apatow, I fully believe that given a second chance, "Freaks and Geeks" could have a major comeback in today's world of instant television streaming and online series. Although I could go on forever about this show's much needed return, here are a solid 11 reasons why "Freaks and Geeks" was one of the most fantastic shows created, and why it should be resurrected.

1. Daniel Desario. No explanation needed.

2. It had one of the best show openings ever.

3. It taught us all about stoner culture.

4. It taught us that there is more to a person than their appearance.

5. Some of life's most important lessons were discussed.

6. It was home to some of the most epic comebacks in television history.

7. It had relatable characters, including the embarrassing best friend.

8. It proved that pot wasn't the only way to get high.

9. It created a world where the cool kids and the nerds could co-exist.

10. It shed light on the true struggles of teenage life.

11. It placed heavy emphasis on the importance of self-confidence.

Here's to hoping for a reboot season.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
