Judd Apatow's whole career is just revenge for Freaks And Geeks being canceled

For those who have long wondered what drives Judd Apatow to such prolific heights as a writer, director, and producer, the answer is it’s the same thing that drives every single one of us: an unslakable thirst for revenge. Last night, Apatow told a Paley Center audience, “Everything I’ve done, in a way, is revenge for the people who canceled Freaks And Geeks. It’s really demented, but it’s just like ‘you were wrong about that person, and that person and that person. And that writer and that director.’ And I really should get over that.” In the meantime, he’s managed to turn that vendetta into some fairly tidy profits, even if it meant repeatedly dragging his own wife and daughters into the fray. Meanwhile, your own quest for revenge has yielded nothing but irreparably damaged lives. Which is funny, yes, but not $148 million domestic funny.
