I wanted to share with you all my newest obsession. While on duty as an RA I was having a pretty quiet night the weekend before spring break, so I decided to watch something on netflix. I wanted to watch something new, and one of my favorite authors used to rave about Friday Night Lights (the TV show), and so I decided to watch an episode…which turned into five which turned into binge watching during spring break. By the end of the pilot, I was TOTALLY hooked. I was a huge football fan when I was in high school, and I didn’t realize how much I miss the energy that surrounds Friday night football games. I really miss having a football team, so I’m glad that the law school I chose has a football team I can watch when I need to de-stress! Anyway, it’s basically the greatest. I have a few all time favorite shows (Gilmore Girls being at the top), but Friday Night Lights is definitely part of that list now. The writing is great, and the depictions of small town football hype feel so accurate (since I come from that environment, not as extreme, but still!)
Also, the team motto on the show is shown above, and I seriously believe this motto could be applied to all aspects of life, not just sporting events! It’s a really good sentiment, and I think it’s important to remember to keep our heads up and have a lot of heart in everything we do!
Also, if you watch this show and DON’T fall for Tim Riggins by the end, you’re watching it wrong! Not really, but Tim Riggins is a phenomenal character and his character development is awesome to watch throughout the five seasons!
Okay, now go binge watch the show!
