Our Small Town, Ourselves: The Return of "Friday Night Lights"
By Christine Cupaiuolo — January 17, 2009
Just in time for the third season of “Friday Night Lights,” BuzzSugar looks at the five most essential episodes, including the one where Landry tries to impress with a copy of “Our Bodies, Ourselves.”
I’ve already watched the third season on DirecTV, and it’s a triumphant return to the themes of season one (season two was overly melodramatic; it was a bad call, to use the appropriate sports metaphor).
The cast of “FNL” includes a number of young women with agency and the best working mother — school principal Tami Taylor (Connie Britton) — on TV.
I recommend adding it to your viewing schedule this year (NBC, Fridays at 9 p.m. EST; the first episode aired last night, Jan. 16). You can also view episodes online.
Plus: “The L Word,” a true guilty pleasure, begins its sixth and final season Sunday on Showtime. Ginia Bellafante has more.
I am excited about this season and will be interested to see how they handle Jason’s surprise pregnancy. They left the door open for the waitress to pursue and abortion or adoption and were clear that continuing the pregnancy was her call and that he was unfair to burden her with the whole “it’s my miracle baby” thing.
LOVE THIS SHOW!
