This isn't about McKinleyCast, but could iTunes please add the original series for purchase?
I just started watching old episodes of "Freaks & Geeks" and I loved it! However, I'm mainly posting this review in hopes that iTunes will hopefully notice it and add full episodes of the actual series itself. I'd also really appreciate if they added the original soundtrack album from the show for purchase as well- I know it exists! I didn't know where else to post this review because iTunes has hardly ANYTHING for purchase that has to do with this show. Fans show your support and demand iTunes add the original series for purchase!
This Podcast makes me love Freaks & Geeks even more!
I love this podcast, because we have a good mix of hosts from different ages discussing a pretty amazing show. While the production schedule is slower than some other podcasts I like that because it means it will last longer. Sadly Freaks & Geeks didn't last very long, but I feel like it's a timeless show. When they do finish, I hope they find something else to podcast about.
Thank you McKinleycast!
Every great show deserves an equally great complementary introcast, and Freaks and Geeks finally has one. Lots of great conversations as the group goes through each episode. Enjoy!
