Most of you by now have seen Judd Apatow’s masterpiece Freaks and Geeks. For those that haven’t, Freaks and Geeks was a shamefully short-lived comedy/drama that originally aired on NBC in 1999. Due to some poor ratings, only 18 episodes were ever produced. Freaks and Geeks was a show about “the other” people in high school.
In recent years free running, or “parkour” has exploded around the world. From 007 to Mirror’s Edge this new extreme sport has captured the attention of nerds and ninja fans everywhere. Until now no series has actually documented how these extreme athletes train, and how they get to be “the best there is at what they do”. G4’s new reality series Jump City Seattle follows Seattle’s best free runners and their incredibly ninja like behavior. Check out these amazing athletes in action on Conan ,and ask yourself, “Do we really need a CG Spiderman?”
Answer: No, no we don’t.
