What she means:
“Okay listen, the show Freaks and Geeks was really great, it was funny and well cast and it let you really get to know and love the characters as though they’re your friends too and not just part of some tv series, the show really had some depth to it and the characters went through stuff we can all relate to, it wasn’t just some cliché high school show either, there were cheesy moments but that happens in real life too, the show was way ahead of its time and I can’t believe there’s only 18 episodes, how can you cancel such a great show after only one season?”
“Man to Man” (Frank Doyle, Samm Schwartz, Jughead #312)
Another gem from Doyle and Schwartz.
I remember the first time I read this, I had expected several more pages where Jughead catches up to Betty, gets freaked out by all of the “girl stuff” and runs back home where he tells his parents he’ll never whip up that aforementioned enthusiasm. To my surprise, it was just a sweet little story with, dare I say, a whisper of foreshadowing.
This is the canon that I still hold near and dear to my heart. Sure, in the grand scheme of things, they’re just comics. Only stories…but imagine all of the joy we’d miss out on if we didn’t have them in our lives.
