I believe that there are two types of people in the world.
Those who know and love the TV series Friday Night Lights and those who have never really given it a try.
To my brothers and sisters who are already believers I’d like to congratulate you on your exquisite taste, we share a bond through the Dillon High Panthers that is by far stronger than with the people we actually went to high school with.
To those of you who haven’t yet tried it (and by try it I mean at least 3 episodes back to back starting with the first season) I understand that most people are very resistant to open their heart to it, me included. The reasons for which I have analyzed in depth. I would like to take a moment to fend off your fears and, hopefully, bring you over to the other side.
REASON 5 : It’s NOT Just a Lame Spin Off from The Movie “Friday Night Lights”
We have seen it before as a pathetic effort to keep the dream alive a TV series is made about a movie. (Clueless, I am looking at you) It’s like the movie only it never ends and none of our favorite actors are even in it. Not very attractive.
What you need to do is just forget the movie ever existed, on it’s finest day it couldn’t hold a candle to the tv show.
REASON 4: You can love it if you don’t love (or even like) football.
It’s not just about football. In fact some football obsessed folks watching it might be a tad disappointed that it has more other stuff in it.
Stuff like: family, loyalty, friendship, Texas and a whole plethora of heart. The football stuff is fun, though, and is guaranteed to keep the males in your life interested.
REASON 3: No matter who you are, you are bound to relate to at least one of the characters.
Unlike your everyday 90210, these people are so real and so relate-able. By the end of the series you will be rooting for every single one of them.
REASON 2: This is NOT just like all the other sports shows.
A fact that my Netflix still hasn’t figured out considering as it has “Go Tigers” as my #1 pick for “Shows Cara might like”
You know how they go….
The underdogs, who have enough heart to out weight their lack of skill and size, struggle but after a musical montage and a fresh batch of new uniforms ultimately become the champions. I happen to love it but it’s not one you are ALWAYS in the mood for and it is not what your gonna get here.
Reason #1: HOTTIES!
Feast your eyes on Tim Riggins.
