I think I wrote about this show once before on AP in an attempt to get people to tune into it. It amazes me that nobody watches this show when it's one of the best things on television and I would think guys (and ladies) who are football fans would eat it up. It's won the Peabody Award, which is one of the highest awards given in television. I know we've discussed sports movies on here before, but this show gets it right. If you played high school football or grew up in a small town or both, you will immediately recognize things. The book is one of the best non-fiction books I've read.
Last night's episode was one of the single best episodes of television I have ever seen. It's a shame something of this quality that takes football seriously goes overlooked.
If you've never watched the show, the new season is available legally on Hulu.com And if you have a Netflix account you can stream all fours seasons on your computer. I have yet to recommend it to somebody and have them not like it. I think readers of AP would go nuts for it.
