Ok, so this is sort of football related, but does anybody besides me watch the TV version of Friday Night Lights? I just finished watching the episode than ran last night and, like most of the time when I finish watching it, I just come away baffled that the show isn't a huge hit. So I will throw down my challenge that I've never lost yet: All the episodes of FNL are available online at both hulu,com or nbc,com. Watch the pilot episode (it's the first episode from season 1) and if after watching the pilot you don't have an interest in watching any more of it, then don't. But so far I haven't recommended it to anybody who hasn't loved the first episode and kept watching. I would love to see FNL come back for a fourth season.
Also, anybody read the book Friday Night Lights by Buzz Bisinger? Great, great, great football book.
And the Peter Berg film version of it with Billy Bob Thornton is also pretty good.
But I think it works better as a TV series than it did as a movie.
So let me hear from you if you are a fan of the show. And if you aren't a fan yet, give it a go and I think you'll like it.
