Take note: the time for revolutions is nigh.
In a quarter century, China has had two student demonstrations protesting for the right to democracy and against corrupt governments.  A nation that is strongly regulated and tightly controlled can attempt for revolution and change, then why is it that we in the West cannot organise ourselves for change?  Why do we not join our voices to tell our governments to stop taking advantage of the power that we so easily let them secure in the name of democracy? 
Bravo Hong Kong, I hope you win this one.

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.
