As usual, I’m looking for something new to watch over the summer while my regular shows are on hiatus. This time around, I think I’ll give Friday Night Lights (Season 2 a chance). I recently completed the first season and thought it was fantastic, so I’m hoping for the same from Season 2.
I don’t know what it is about the show that I like so much. There’s just something about these aspiring football players from a blue collar town where things like pickup trucks, steel-toed boots, and bakers gas welding gloves sell well. Most of them have had hard lives and are doing all they can to get the hell out of Dillon. Few of them will make it, but their struggles sure are compelling.
I’ve already grabbed the full season from iTunes for $19.99 and will be watching soon.
