Music Monday: Bill’s Sandwich, The Who and “Freaks and Geeks”

29 Jul

Sometimes the simplest scenes are the ones that stay with you and one such moment that I have been looking forward to seeing again as I rewatch Freaks and Geeks for This Was TV, is Bill making an after school snack and watching TV. It doesn’t sound particularly memorable when put like that but the way the scene is constructed and the performance from Martin Starr elevates it to favorite scene status. The episode is “Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers” and I’ll be discussing it in length with Julie Hammerle later in the week, but I thought that both the scene and the track “I’m One” by The Who are perfect for this “Music Monday” feature.

Start your week with Bill Haverchuck related joy (and maybe a grilled cheese sandwich).
