Before Judd Apatow knew what “This is 40” felt like, before James Franco cut off his arm in “127 Hours,” before Paul Feig directed “Bridesmaids,” before Seth Rogen was a massive movie star and Jason Segel hung out with the Muppets and Busy Phillips moved to Cougartown, before all of these things, there was “Freaks and Geeks.” As you well know, “Freaks and Geeks” is one of the greatest TV shows ever, though it only lasted a single hilarious, heartbreaking, almost perfect season. That season is now airing on IFC’s The Automat a.k.a. the DVR-friendly part of the day.
