HA! Remember a few weeks ago when I predicted Friday Night Lights would be the great new TV show of this fall? Well, I've been watching it, and it's very good -- surprisingly different for TV. Like other truly well-written shows (Seinfeld, Cheers and Frasier), it's focused on characters rather than icky bugs and manufactured drama. I confess to being a little worried that this could backfire, since some seriously high-rated shows achieve great success through dredging. But I'm holding out hope that people will tune in to intersting, conversation-generating, television for a change.
And tonight I found out that I'm not alone.
