10:51 pm - Tami Taylor Is a Hot Mom
Oh my God, you guys, Friday Night Lights is so fucking good this season. It makes me tear up practically every week. What I love about this show is that it sees nothing wrong with giving characters what they want and making them happy. It does this without shame, without irony, without killing someone off immediately afterward. BECAUSE SOMETIMES THAT IS WHAT WE NEED, JOSS WHEDON, OKAY? SOMETIMES THAT IS WHAT WE FUCKING NEED. Friday Night Lights has plenty of angst and pain, but it balances them out with a healthy amount of joy and hope. It is a celebration of people and the relationships we share.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to decompress so I can watch Thursday night TV.



Okay, I'm back. I present to you highly analytical, extremely articulate, boundlessly enthusiastic six-word episode reviews.

My Name Is Earl: More Catalina in a bikini, please.

The Office: Pam Pam Pam Pam Pam Pam.

30 Rock: Jennifer Aniston has really nice legs.

Supernatural: I'd make out with that redhead.
Current Mood: thoughtfulthoughtful
Current Music: The Postal Service - Recycled Air

RIGHT?! Every freaking week I love it more and more. It's my happy show.

What I love about this show is that it sees nothing wrong with giving characters what they want and making them happy. It does this without shame, without irony, without killing someone off immediately afterward.
Yeah! It's so wonderful. And I think that's why I feel like it's made a return to the first season charm because last season was like the season of pain, but this season...people are happy again! And I love everyone on this show! How is that possible? Watching this week's episode I was asking myself, "When did I start to love Buddy Garrity so much?" It came on me gradually, I know--I think first I disliked him and then last season I started to feel bad for him and then see some good in him, and this season I just love him. But it's like that with any character I didn't like. Like Tim's brother. When did he become someone I like?

This is a show that regularly makes me tear up, too, but this week I was genuinely crying at the end when the boys (Street, the Riggins boys, and Herc) were sitting around at the end. And I love a show that makes me cry happy tears.


Supernatural: I'd make out with that redhead.
Because redheads are hot, dude. (Note: I don't watch Supernatural.)

EXACTLY.

I know--I think first I disliked him and then last season I started to feel bad for him and then see some good in him, and this season I just love him.
Seriously! I mean, the JumboTron bullshit was pure S1 I-hate-you-so-much Buddy Garrity, but by this time, it's...an endearing hate? And then whenever they focus on his family stuff...I feel so bad for him.

Like Tim's brother. When did he become someone I like?
They make everyone a real person with both good and bad sides.

Because redheads are hot, dude.
Damn straight.

I was shocked when I realized I loved Buddy Garrity too! I completely adore him, even when he is being horrible.

Aaaaaaaaaaaah, I downloaded yesterday's episode and watched it during my seven-hour bus ride to Toronto (sadly leaving me six hours unentertained) and I was constantly tearing up on the bus. This season is so delightful.

There was a new SPN? Stupid Thursday night Football must have preempted it and I thought there was none on.

now I have to find that and FNL tonight before going to DC, but after watching 5 other hours of movies. Oiy.

Well, SPN can wait until I come back, but FNL never can.

SPN is the long-awaited Sam-flashback episode, by the way. Don't know if that influences your decision.

Why do you have to watch five hours of movies before getting to your TV?

no, it doesn't. I don't mind having SPN on hold these days, and Sam is ... Sam.

I'm in the middle of Cranford and go the second disc and want to watch it, and I don't want to take my computer and watch while travelling. I want to read the last Twilight while travelling. So much to do! All these tv/book obligations! But I did get to have fun, fabulous Sichaun style hot pot last night, so I don't mind having to fulfill tv duty tonight.

Thanks. I've finally seen the picture it comes from, so I might make some of my own. Although...my photoshop skillz are not fab.

I didn't watch any of those shows you talked about! But, I agree Joss should just give us a happy, every once in awhile. *stares*

Of course you would. I'm pretty sure Dean does next week.

FNL does good characterization. Although, it's too bad the show forgot how old Lyla and Riggins are and veers from Realism to astonishingly ridiculous in its treatment of the football. But good drama, good dialouge, good cast, good acting...

Heeeee.

FNL sounds too good to be true. I'd be waiting for something really really bad to happen.

Pam!

OMG YES! It's the best. And too true about Joss. It's good at making me cry and making me so ecstatic and happy. I love it.
