Why Lindsay And Sam Weir Had The Best Sibling Relationship Of All Time

There are a lot of cute sets of TV siblings out there. But for the one season they were brother and sister on "Freaks And Geeks," Lindsay and Sam Weir had it down.

And their mom, for that matter.

Sam was all about protecting his sister from running with the wrong crowd.
