    Default My So-Called Life or Freaks and Geeks

    Two defining Teen Series that share quite a few similarities. What TV Series do you prefer, which one is better?

    Neither was a personal favorite of mine but between the two, I'd definitely choose Freaks and Geeks.

    Of the two i always leaned more towards Freaks and Geeks but they are both incredibly awesome and underrated.

    I've only seen My So-Called Life, because I'm a Generation X relic. Sorry.

    Totally agree with you, two of the best TV Series out there.

    Freaks and Geeks. Was so pissed off when it was cancelled. So many stars went on to bigger and better things though. Especially Seth Rogen and James Franco. But Busy Phillips, Jason Sagel, Linda Cardinelli,
    John Francis Daley all had great roles afterwards.

    Freaks and Geeks was much better than anything they have done since.

    I felt John Francis Daley was very good in Bones. Liked Busy Phillips in Cougar Town too. Linda Cardinelli was very good in ER

    Still their roles in F&G remain their most unique.

    My So Called Life for two reasons: 1) I haven't seen Freaks and Geeks, 2) That aged Claire Danes was my dream girl looks wise, I try to pretend that crazy meth junkie looking Claire Danes from Homeland doesn't exist.

    I never really got into the TV shows aimed at me in my teens like those. I was 23 the first year Freaks and Geeks aired though but I had a friend that was really into My So Called Life when we were teens. I did watch the first 2 seasons of Beverly Hills 90210, though. I liked it before it become more like a soap besides the fact that I watched soaps. Don't ask me why.

    Freaks and Geeks came out years later.

    When the youngest of the Generation X generation was already in college then. So many didn’t watch it. Too busy with real life.
