Your wish, my command
So, in accordance with the poll results, I started with Friday Night Lights season 2.
Strangely, I think I was actually more into the show this season than in the first? Maybe it's because I never really fell hard for the show the way everyone else did, so this time around, knowing that people considered it a weak season, I didn't feel this pressure to LIKE IT ALREADY.
Which isn't to say that I'm loving it, but, you now, enjoying it enough to keep watching season 3.
One thing that always freaks me out is how Tim/Lyla can hit EVERY ONE of my 'ship kinks, and still I dislike them intensely. I think it's because even though I enjoy the girl-falls-for-boyfriend's-best-friend trope, apparently it doesn't apply when the boyfriend is still the actual boyfriend and not an ex. And I never thought I was that against cheating, but it looks like I am. Or maybe it's because of their massive betrayal of their friend when he was hurting the most? I can almost forgive Lyla, even though I think she was the very cliché of a stupid high school cheerleader for pinning all her hopes and dreams on a guy, but Riggins? Dude, when you're in pain because something devastating happened to your best friend, HIS PAIN TOPS YOURS. Douche.
Pretty much the only time I liked Riggins was when he was acting as Julie's big brother, all protective and sweet. But then I remembered the whole betrayal thing and I went right back to dislike.
One thing that really bums me out is that Tyra was by far my favorite character in season 1, but the season 2 Premiere of Bad Things that Happen on Bridges left such a bad taste in my mouth that I never really recovered that love. God, I hope season 3 holds better things for her.
FAKE MONICA: I - I used to be just like you. And then one day I saw a movie that changed my life. Did you ever see Dead Poets Society?
FAKE MONICA: I thought that movie was so incredibly... boring. I mean, that thing at the end where the kid kills himself because he can't be in the play? What was that?! It's like, kid, wait a year, leave home, do some community theater.
