Friday Night Lights was a fun ride. Season 4 and 5 were particularly well done, and I'm sure anyone who has stuck with the series knows what I'm talking about when I say the Matt Saracen arc in season four was very, very well done. In the end however, it was the shallow yet endearing antics of Tim Riggins that was the most entertaining for me. That, and of course, the very well done and inspiring storyline for Eric Taylor and his family.
Just a good show all around despite one too many Dangerous Minds/After-school-special type moments.
In other news, I recently started Mad Men finally and have seen about ten episodes of season one. It started off very slowly, but suddenly became a masterpiece. Yes, it is an absolutely excellent show that is written by superb and mature writers. Every episode is a work of art unto itself (so far), and I find myself more and more intrigued by the story as it moves along. Those of you who ditched the show after only an episode or two should revisit them and give the first season a chance. I began to see the light after episode five or six.
