Any excuse to have more of my alter-ego Busy Philipps on TV is a good one, but this one is freaking awesome: IFC will be running two one-season wonders from Judd Apatow, 1999-2000’s Freaks and Geeks and 2001-2002’s Undeclared. It’s official: IFC, which also ran Arrested Development, is my new favorite channel. Sorry, Food Network! Somehow it’s more exciting to watch an old show on current TV than on the DVD that you already own. It’s like you’re “catching” it, even though you don’t need to do that. What are you, insane? Yes! Freaks and Geeks premieres this Friday(!!!); Undeclared will run in the fall.
Favorite Freaks and Geeks quote: GO!
