Kyle's Career Filmstrip: TV Series and Movies

Sep 22, 2009

Some More Kyle and Connie Love

An interesting perspective on the current status of movies and television. According to the author,

"It’s not so much that I prefer television to film, but rather that I think the gap in quality is shrinking to the point of non-existence."

"Think about the greatest performances you’ve seen in a movie theater in the past few years; perhaps you’re thinking of Daniel Day-Lewis (greatest living actor) in There Will Be Blood or Meryl Streep in Doubt or Matt Damon in The Good Shepherd. As great as I think those performances are, I think equally highly – if not more so - of Jon Hamm as Don Draper in Mad Men or Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton as Coach and Tami Taylor in Friday Night Lights or Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin in Weeds or Michael C. Hall in Dexter."

We concur. Friday Night Lights is the best show on television, today ... and it's no secret why.
