Friday Night Lights

Okay, I know this t.v. show is over but if you missed it the first go 'round you must see it on Netflix. Put it in your instant que people!!!! This show reminded me so much of high school - love, sports, drama, fun - and so much more. What I LOVE LOVE LOVE about this show is how authentic it is - from the shooting style to the actors playing their parts - it is as real as television can get. We finished season five this week and I am going to miss Coach and Tammy Taylor!!!!! Rent it now!
