Fridays aren’t a big night for television: even in the wake of a few new shows debuting (Women’s Murder Club for ABC, Moonlight for CBS), I really can’t say that much on the night piques my interest. However, that doesn’t mean that I won’t be watching anything: unlike last year, there’s a show on Fridays that is worth the time of every TV viewer out there.
Friday Night Lights
Last week, I received my Friday Night Lights DVDs on Tuesday evening. By Saturday night, I had completed the entire 22 episode season. While light on features, the incredibly well-priced DVD collection reminded me of two things: that this was by far one of the best shows on television last season, and that I didn’t give it enough credit at the time.
I’ll write more about Friday Night Lights when its debut in early October moves closer, but for now here’s something for those in the U.S.: until the end of the weekend, Yahoo! has the premiere streaming in its entirety. Check it out, and feel proud that you’re able to see something that I (As a Canadian) cannot see.
