Maybe you don't have DirecTV, the only place Season 3 is being shown ... because people like you didn't watch Seasons 1 and 2. And surely, season 2 wasn't up to par of the amazing first year. But I feel like Bill Simmons when people tell me they don't watch:
"Friday Night Lights" is the best sports show in 30 years. It lost its way a little in the second season but came back strong this season. It's a must-watch again. When people tell me they don't watch the show, I get confused the same way I get confused when someone tells me they haven't tried ice cream or drunk a beer.
There are a few great shows on TV now, but clearly at this point, FNL is one of them.
And without spoiling last week's episode, it was truly amazing. If Scott Proctor (Jason Street) doesn't get an Emmy nod, I'm pissed off. Let's just say it got very dusty in the Greebs household last night, and again a bit in my car when I was thinking about it.
I haven't even mentioned Minka Kelly, Adrienne Palicki, Connie Britton or Aimee Teegarden yet.
Seriously, if you haven't done so already, go rent Season 1. You won't be sorry. And then struggle through the beginning of Season 2, and keep your head down, and you really won't be sorry.
This is a great show, and not enough folks know it.
