the best tv show (EVER!!)


(which, believe me…is saying A LOT. Lord only knows how many shows i watch!)

ten reasons why you should (MUST!) watch friday night lights:

1. tim riggins – enough said. (give him until at least season 3 before you give up on him. by then, you won’t. i promise!)

2. coach & mrs. taylor – EASILY the best marriage on tv. so genuine! don’t even try and tell me they aren’t really together.

3. crucifictorius – hands down, my favorite kind of music. still trying to get a copy of their cd.

4. matt saracen’s grandma – sweetest lady ever! i think she’d be great friends with my grandma, and i love that about her.

5. football – i will proudly admit to jumping up and down and screaming my head off during certain (most!) games and i don’t even really like football. SO intense!! you WILL refer to them when talking about your favorite teams (or maybe that’s just me…).

6. lyla’s constant life changes – one day, she’s president of the christian club. the next, she’s in bed with tim riggins. just go with it. i’m just as confused as you are.

7. coach’s motivational talks & life advice – often times i find myself nodding my head in agreement and saying “thanks coach!” sure, he isn’t talking directly to me…but that’s not important. i need him in my real life. whoever writes his lines must be one heck of a therapist.

8. jd mccoy – i’m sorry, but i can’t stand you, you arrogant prick! every show needs a villain, right?! i felt bad for him at first…now i don’t. at all. i find that yelling at him thru the screen helps to relieve stress. don’t even get me started on his dad. the nerve!!

9. landry/lance – everyone loves landry! mainly because everyone knows a landry in their own life and loves him terribly. i’m still waiting to see him around town and ask when we can hang out…because obviously we’re best friends.

10. mrs. taylor’s hair – JEALOUS. i’d kill for that.

seriously though, it truly is the greatest show.  i didn’t start watching until earlier this year when i watched them all furiously on netflix as fast as i could…i felt like i’d been let in on some highly confidential secret! three episodes in i was already planning my trip to dillon. (i know, i’ts not a real place. fooled me at first, i’ll be honest.)

i guarantee you will learn something about yourself by watching this show. i feel like i know each character personally because they are SO relatable (although i should probably stop referring to them by first name only in conversation). you’ll find yourself always hoping for the best but preparing for the worst as you cheer them along through new jobs, long-distance relationships, and the best rivalries. and if you’re anything like me, you’ll notice how some of their problems seem to, oddly enough, line right up with yours (you just don’t use y’all when explaining it to everyone else).

so…go watch. now! you won’t be disappointed!

        I am! Everyone I’ve talked to said they cried a lot during the finale… not necessarily because it was sad, but because it was over. I’m just starting season 4, so I have some time left 🙂
