A high school mathlete starts hanging out with a group of burnouts while her younger brother navigates his freshman year.
During the opening credits, you can see James Franco and Jason Segal vigorously rubbing their eyes, to give themselves a stoner look. You can also see Seth Rogen smiling before his class picture, which he takes with a grumpy look. Allowing the viewer to see this was intentional, as it was a common trend in the 80s to harmlessly sabotage one's yearbook photo.
When various characters enter the liquor store throughout the show, advertisements for Zima (a malt based alcoholic drink) and SoBe (an energy drink) are visible in the background. Both of these are quintessential late 90's brands and would not have been available in 1980.
There are many differences between the master copies of the show, and the versions that aired. Some scenes are added in the masters, and some of the music is changed. This may have been due to time problems with the network and copyright problems with music, but nothing is confirmed.
