I'll update you guys as I make my way through it. I might hit up the pilot episode tonight, actually.
Took me over a month to get going but I'm five episodes into Season 1 and I love it. Really good shit. For y'all that know me, this will not be a surprise, so I'll spare you the in depth details about how I'm close to head over heels in love with at least two of the girls on this show.

The in-game football stuff is often ridiculous and unintentionally funny, but I like it. I couldn't help but cheer (and laugh) at the end of the pilot episode when Saracen was fuckin scrambling back to his own 15 and unleashed an 80 yard bomb for the winning touchdown with no time on the clock! HaHA! That was great. They make it very easy to root for this team: Saracen and Coach are very likeable guys. And some of the other players, too.

They also won me over when they used a great Pearl Jam song at the end of the 3rd episode.

For once, though, when it comes to these teen dramas, I want to see a young high school couple that is actually faithful to eachother and doesn't cheat. Like how cool would it be if Lyla actually stuck with crippled QB dude the whole time and didn't actually go off and cheat on him with Drunk Playing Golf With Beer Cans dude? I'm going to write one of these soap-operay teen shows one day where there's a couple that doesn't go around fucking everybody else in sight.

Cool show.

FNL always uses awesome music, I want to find out who their music supervisor is and hang out with them.

I suspected that was the episode he meant. That was a great hour of TV. Zach Gilford deserves a lot of praise for his acting in that one.

... yeah, I know. I figured as much when Dalton said "most recent episode," since the DirecTV season ended months ago.

Agreed. I thought the scene when he saw his father was unbelievable.

I have always loved Saracen, and Gilford's acting, but damn that was the most gut-wrenching episode of a network drama I have ever seen, topping Mark Greene's last episode on ER and the FNL S3 episode where Joe hits JD. While watching it I couldn't help but think that since Gilford is technically a guest star this year, maybe that would help FNL finally score a big Emmy, some sort of vindication... but it would almost be better if the show didn't win any, befitting the best series like these that get ignored by over-hyped awards.

ABC recently picked up syndication for the show to start in the fall on ABC Family, one can only hope that reruns will bring in more viewers for Season 5 and convince them to extend the show.

Also, loved the connections to old seasons with the mention of Smash and Lyla's appearance. That said, I am pissed that they just abruptly ended the relationship of Landry and Tyra though, they could have just had them have an off-screen relationship, after all that build up, the characters deserved that.

Their arc together at the second half of S3 was , but you know, the heartwarming kind, same with the emotional moments she shared with her mom. I hope we get appearances or mentions of characters like her, Saracen, Street, Smash, etc next season.

Also, can we please tell the writers to find a way to bring Mama Smash back onto the show... she's a nurse isn't she? Can't she be the school nurse at East Dillon or something?? .
