The show’s 18 episodes featured snippets of more than 120 songs, including Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” in the opening credits. It set the tone for the show, but it wasn’t cheap. Clearing songs by Van Halen, KISS, and The Who—just to name a few—required a lot of paperwork and ate up much of the show’s budget . It also later delayed the DVD release. Fox removed most of the music when it picked up Freaks and Geeks re-runs to avoid paying extra fees.
iMAGES: World War II sketches by Fernando C. Amorsolo
Nothing says Filipino Art more than an Amorsolo piece (though, the same could easily be said about anime-fan-drawings). Known for depicting idyllic scenes of provincial everyday life, he merges here the beauty of the medium with the horrors of war.
These Amorsolo sketches show us his mastery of the form. Looking at these now, it’s too bad he never got into comics.
