I resisted Friday Night Lights for a long time. I don’t care about football, Texas, or, usually, family dramas. But I watched the pilot one night this summer when it seemed like the least terrible Netflix streaming choice. 60 minutes and a box of kleenex later, I was hooked. I watch all five seasons in one joyous-yet-weeptastic binge.
There’s not much in FNL for a book lover, but for Book Riot I dug up The Top Ten Literary References in Friday Night Lights.
PS. Update on my WordPress editor hate: It now gives me the option to toggle back to “Classic Mode.” Beep Beep Boop indeed. (And in case you are wondering what I am nattering on about, WordPress forum thread full of angry customers here.)
