what she means:
freaks and geeks was way ahead of its time and was so well written and well acted with the perfect mix of comedy and drama and explored such interesting and complex themes as well as being the most realistic show about high school on tv and still resonating with teens today and i'm still not over the fact that it got cancelled after just one season
This week, we return to “The Clover”, a stand in for the real karaoke bar Heidi and I visit. This strip also introduces the first extra supporting character that ISN’T an actual person. Laurie here is, like the Clover, a stand in for a couple of real people but fictionalized to make storytelling (And likeness rights) easier to manage.
As for the content of the strip itself, it is largely inspired by the fact that while Hollywood is currently enamored with Trans women and our stories, they are still insistent on hiring cisgender men to play us. If I’m LUCKY, I would get Seth Rogan. Maybe that Zack Galifiwhatshisface. Their careers could probably use some award-bait in them, right? Le Sigh.
