Friday Night Lights Love

Friday Night Lights - we started watching it this summer when a good friend said I reminded her of the wife on the show, (which i now realize is a HUGE compliment! Thanks Ashley!) so I watched episode 1 and was hooked.  I got Dave to start watching it with me and we flew through the seasons this summer - then we finished it on Sunday.

It deserves a post because of the time we have spent watching it but also because of how much I loved the series. Coach Taylor and Tami were such a solid couple and it was so refreshing to watch a married couple that didn't cheat on each other and were real. I'm very happy with how the series ended, it tied up all of the characters story lines and I'm not gonna lie, had me in tears. I'm sad that it's over.

Oh and if you haven't watched FNL and still need convincing - Tim Riggins should do the trick:

What will fill the void now?
Anyone have any good recommendations? I'm currently watching a bunch of reality tv mostly: Real Housewives of New Jersey, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Rachel Zoe Project, Most Eligible Dallas, Border Wars (I know, random but I got hooked one day and it's pretty interesting) and a few non-reality programs: It's Always Sunny, Up All Night, How I Met Your Mother and Modern Family as soon as it starts. Wow. That's a lot. Maybe I don't need any other tv shows... yikes!

I just watched the Revenge pilot over the weekend and it was really good. You might try that?

Ahh, Friday Night Lights is the absolute best! I watched the whole series (all 5 seasons) over my summer vacation. I think it such an incredibly well written show, and the characters are perfect. I'm so sad it's over!

Do you watch Parenthood? It is my new favorite family drama-type show. I highly recommend it!
