Do You Watch Friday Night Lights?

This is a call to arms.  If you haven't watched this show please do so tonight.  It is one of the top 5 shows on TV right now, and it is in jeopardy of getting cut because no one is watching it.  I know that it is partially NBC's fault for putting it on the wasteland of TV that is Friday night, but that is no excuse for people not to watch it.

Here are 3 reasons why you should watch it:

  1. It is about football.  That should be enough.
  2. It shows the love affair that a small Texas town has with it's high school football team.  Is it exaggerated? Sure, but I bet it is closer than you might think.
  3. The marriage between Coach Taylor, Kyle Chandler, and his wife, Connie Britton, is one we can all learn from.  Their interaction is classic.
I promise that you will not be dissapointed if you watch this show.  I know you probably have other plans on a Friday night, so set you DVR or TiVo to record it and watch it over the weekend.  You can also watch all of the past episodes by clicking here.  Give it a chance.  There is so much crap on TV today that it would be a travishamockery if this show were to get cancelled.  Careful though, you will find yourself wishing you were as cool as Tim Riggins the more you watch.
