Nerd, dweeb, bookworm, freak, geek — I’ve heard all those terms thrown around inside San Diego’s Convention Center during Comic-Con, and every time I do, I think of Bill Haverchuck. I’m not complaining. Bill, played by Martin Starr on NBC’s Freaks and Geeks, is one of my favorite TV characters ever, a perfect representation of what it’s like to be the kind of kid who races home after school to watch Garry Shandling specials while savoring a homemade sandwich. I think that’s something a lot of Warming Glow readers understand all too well.
Today’s GIFs of the Week includes selections from Futurama, The Newsroom, and True Blood, but also a collection of GIFs from Freaks and Geeks. Yes, it does include Bill dancing, and yes, that’s probably one of the five greatest TV scenes ever. We’d never cut you off mid-funk.
