Friday Night Lights is every bit as good on a second viewing--and Season 2 is every bit as annoying. I love FNL's perfect Texas mix of sarcasm and condescension; I love the wide-eyed surprise in every character's eyes all the time. I love Coach and Mrs. Taylor's relationship--the honest conflict, the fact that they are unshakably committed to their relationship, their passion for their work, their support for each other's work. I love Saracen and Riggins and Saracen's grandmother. And the whole thing is quite a picture into life in a place with drastically different values and passions and obsessions than the places in which I've lived. One complaint: they should have gotten a cuter baby to play Gracie.
