The Best Show Everyone Should Be Watching
My favorite show is Friday Night Lights. I'm a huge fan and have been systematically breaking down the will of everyone to whom I'm related. My brother-in-law and his wife finally watched Season One. I bought Season One to convince the husband to watch. So, tonight, thanks to the writers' strike and the end of a six-week marathon of the first four seasons of The Wire, he finally broke down and watched the first disc of Season One. He's a convert!
Sidenote: The husband is not a big TV person, but he has watched the first four seasons of The Wire in about a month in preparation to the premiere of the fifth and final season. So, there are a few shows with which he invests great sums of time.
So, back to the point, if you haven't watched Friday Night Lights yet, I recommend it. The first season is super cheap. I picked it up for less than $20. Oh, I forgot the most important part... Kyle Chandler. I've been in love with him since Homefront, not to mention my obsession with Early Edition. His recognition is long overdue.
Yummy... Anyway, sales pitch done.
