‘Freaks and Geeks’ (reruns) to grace the air again, on IFC

IFC’s acquisition of rebroadcast rights for “Freaks and Geeks” means, among other things, that one of the greatest pilots in TV history will be televised for the first time in ages. If you haven’t seen it, set your DVRs for it on Friday.

Not since “The Wonder Years” (and maybe before that) had a television program come close to launching with such a pitch-perfect depiction of the comedy and drama of growing up. The “Freaks” pilot was filled with great moments throughout, and it’s impossible not to watch the climax without melting.

Of course, the remaining episodes of the too-shortlived series weren’t exactly shabby.

The increasingly comedy-oriented IFC also acquired “Freaks” little brother “Undeclared,” which didn’t quite live up to its sibling but still was plenty enjoyable. That will bow on the cabler in the fall.
