FNLs: It's the Best Show on Television

'Friday Night' Diversion is Back On

It seems like forever since we last saw Friday Night Lights, which returned last Friday on NBC, and now I'm going to say it straight out: It's the best show on television.

Yes, better than The Amazing Race, Breaking Bad or Glee — or even Mad Men.

It's about parents and kids, school, love, competition (healthy and unhealthy), good folks and mean folks, small-town life.

Heck, it's set in Texas, and I still like it.

This season, Tami and Eric Taylor (Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler) are split up — not their marriage, but their schools. She is principal of one, and he is head football coach at the newer high school.

The 13-episode season, which showed on DIRECTV in fall and winter, has such new faces as Jurnee Smollett, Alicia Witt, Matt Lauria and Michael B. Jordan. Aimee Teegarden (Julie), Jesse Plemons (Landry), Zach Gilford (Matt) and Taylor Kitsch (Riggins) return — as well as that awful rich man and his arrogant quarterback son.

The Emmy dummies need to show Friday Night Lights a lot of love this year. It's becoming downright embarrassing. The show, the directors, the writers and Chandler and Britton all deserve wins.

Here, here!!!
