Friday Night Lights The First Season

Friday Night Lights The First Season

If you've seen my other TV show picks, you might thing this one sticks out like a sore thumb. I'm not a football/sports fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I have always enjoyed sports movies. I enjoyed the shows namesake movie, so I gave the series a shot. You don't need to be a sports fan to be sucked in by this raw, dramatic and hugely related drama. The sharp writing and superb acting brings us some of the real and relate able characters in recent memory, and the football backdrop allows a unique perspective into their lives. It lost a little believability in the second season, but season 1 is pure perfection.
