If you asked me to pick five words to describe a TV show I would like, I wouldn’t have expected that “football”, “Texas” and “high school drama” would make the list.
On the recommendation from more than one friend (usually accompanied by “no, really, I’m serious”), Jeannie and I gave Friday Night Lights a try. We are addicts.
I’ve heard comments like “the most real marriage on television” and “not afraid to make you despondent”. Both seem accurate.
Beyond buying DVDs, I know you can stream on Netflix or buy on iTunes.
In recent years, the only other TV shows I’ve really watched, and loved, are 30 Rock, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, and The Daily Show. SO judge for yourself whether I may be a reliable guide to your tastes.
