OT - Friday Night Lights

Submitted by MGoAndy on October 28th, 2009 at 2:06 AM

Does anybody here watch the Friday Night Lights TV show? Season 4 premieres tonight at 9 on DirecTV (The 101 is the name of the channel). I couldn't be more excited to see what happens with East Dillon High, and what happens with Riggins, Saracen, and the new characters they'll introduce at East Dillon.

The show is truly one of the best dramas on TV and a must watch for football fans. It really captures the emotions associated with high school football in small town Texas, and once you watch the pilot it'll suck you in and never let you go.

FNL is, hands down, my favorite show now that The Wire is no longer airing. It is difficult to describe to people who haven't seen it just how great and mostly realistic it is as a drama. The movie isn't nearly as good. I've considered trying to get DirecTV just to watch it in its full HD glory (as opposed to torrents or sharing sites bc my laptop is a bit old and crappy).

Anyway, don't post any spoilers. And also- how awesome is Riggins? And Buddy Garrity is hilarious. I love that show.

I have pretty much missed every episode since it moved to DirectTV. Meant to get caught up over the summer but never got a chance to. Is Riggins still in high school?

If you want to stream the show online, they post it at this website, usually within a few hours of airing (www.sidereel.com)

It has all kinds of network shows, Dexter, Weeds, Bones, Family Guy, and a handy calendar when you add your favourite (yea I'm Canadian) shows that slots them in a weekly view so you know when to watch them.
