I’m a bad blogger, I know, but I literally couldn’t think of a single writing topic this week, until now.
I know we blog incessantly about Friday Night Lights, and Dexter and Battlestar, but we do this because (I’m talking for Molly and Maureen here) we are consistently blown away by the storytelling on these shows.
This week on Friday Night Lights, they took the pimply, lanky, homely Christian Hard Rocker and made him heroic and wonderful and made the gorgeous bad girl believably fall in love with him. And then they gave him his dream moment and directly afterwards, tore his world apart.
And I loved every moment of it.
And if that isn’t reason enough to watch it, how about for the alchoholic bad boy, who is the most soulful character on the show.
Or, for my favourite reason, the best written, possibly ever on TV, married couple. The coach and his wife. Brilliantly played by the actors, but the truthful, authentic moments the writers are throwing on the screen between these two consistently blow me away.
And not to offend anyone, but freakin’ Ghost Whisperer is kicking its ass in the ratings…
I mean seriously…
