Freaks and Geeks Bingo
Apr 2, 2014 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm| Free
Freaks and Geeks run was short but sweet. Just one season, just 18 episodes. Was it too authentic for prime time? Was it that ambiguous genitalia episode? Whatever its reason for cancellation, it introduced us to the likes of James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, and Judd Apatow (among others). And we just can’t get enough of it. Remember that time when Bill dressed up as the Bionic Woman? Or the time Sam accidentally streaked? Or when Ken’s girlfriend reveals she was born with ambiguous genitalia? Oh yeah, we already mentioned that.
Anyway, the show is still hilarious, and now it’s going to be even more fun because we’ve combined it with bingo: put a chip down when someone says “mathlete,” when someone makes a Star Wars reference, or when someone cuts class. Plus: drink juice barrels and enjoy some special cafeteria treats! We’ll save you a seat at the lunch table!
Episode 13: Chokin’ and Tokin’
Lindsay smokes marijuana for the first time. Moments later, her father reminds her that she had promised to babysit for neighbors that night. Afraid to babysit by herself, she pleads Millie to babysit with her. Millie not only takes care of the child they are babysitting, but takes care of Lindsay while she anxiously deals with the effects of smoking pot. The geeks are embarrassed in front of their peers when Bill reveals their allergies and ailments to Ms. Foote (Leslie Mann). Not believing that Bill is actually deathly allergic to peanuts, Alan puts peanuts into Bill’s sandwich. After Bill eats one bite of the sandwich, Alan realizes that Bill was telling the truth and Bill is rushed to the hospital.
Episode 14: Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers
Lindsay and Kim accidentally run over Millie’s dog one night. Lindsay wants to come clean to Millie, but Kim threatens that if Lindsay confesses, she will react violently. Feeling guilty, Kim befriends Millie and asks her to join the freaks to witness The Who, live in concert. Meanwhile, Nick teaches himself to play guitar and writes a love ballad for Lindsay, and Bill, already having a rocky relationship with Coach Fredricks, is devastated to hear that his mother has been dating him.
