2011 Primetime Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Drama and Comedy Series

The 2011 Primetime Emmys are so close! September 18th to be exact. Up until the ceremony airs on FOX, I’ll be working through most of the major categories and discussing who could win, who should win and of course, who will win. I’ll likely be tackling two categories in each post, just so you know. Well … Continue reading 2011 Primetime Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Drama and Comedy Series

Series Finale — Friday Night Lights, “Always”

One LAST TIME, this is the review I wrote during FNL's DirecTV run. I will be completely honest with you, I've avoided reviewing the last handful of episodes of Friday Night Lights because it's just been too damn hard to let go. From "Fracture" onward, I've basically been left in a heaping ball of my … Continue reading Series Finale — Friday Night Lights, “Always”

Checking in with Friday Night Lights Season Five

Again, these posts were written during the DirecTV run. They're being reposted here now. I haven't written about FNL in a while (I think since episode three) because of odd scheduling and also because I've been a little frustrated with things. It's not that season five has been bad, I just didn't feel like the … Continue reading Checking in with Friday Night Lights Season Five

Friday Night Lights, “The Right Hand of the Father”

Again, this is the review from the DirecTV run. And because of my packed schedule back then, it's also the last one for a few weeks. I might find time to write new reviews for the next few episodes, but probably not. Sometimes, amid the top-notch acting, rock-solid writing and professional direction, we forget that … Continue reading Friday Night Lights, “The Right Hand of the Father”

Friday Night Lights, “On The Outside Looking In”

Again, this is my review from the DirecTV run of FNL that I'm reposting here for those of you watching on NBC's schedule. Enjoy. After my reaction to last week's premiere episode that succeeded mostly when focusing on the departure of old favorites, I was particularly interested in watching "On The Outside Looking In" to … Continue reading Friday Night Lights, “On The Outside Looking In”

Season Premiere — Friday Night Lights, “Expectations”

Pardon the pun, but coming into Friday Night Lights' fifth and final season, we as an audience have certain expectations. Because this is the final season, we expect some sense of closure for the characters we've loved for five seasons (and in some cases, less than that). Though we know many of the original Dillon … Continue reading Season Premiere — Friday Night Lights, “Expectations”

Friday Night Lights, “East of Dillon”

So far I've only been linking to my recaps for WEEKEND Watchers, but Friday Night Lights' season four debut on NBC is the perfect place to start posting Surveillance-only thoughts. With "East of Dillon," a lot of things have changed for the Taylors, the football team(s) and really for all Dillon residents. But a lot … Continue reading Friday Night Lights, “East of Dillon”
