Jason Street maded you a cookie......but he couldn't eat it. Ya know....because he's crippled. :lol:
Thank God for new Friday Night Lights. It's most likely the best thing on network television now that the strike has set in (there's still 5 more new FNLs).
The Landry (Jesse Plemons) / Tyra (Adrianne Palicki) relationship/chemistry is my favorite part of the show now. I've loved them since that scene at the Roast in Season 1. Plemons and Palicki are now my two favorite actors on the program - aside from Kyle Chandler (Coach Taylor) and Connie Britton (Tami Taylor), of course. The murder case aside, their teenage (non-)romance is probably the most realistic one on television. Just re-watch that scene at the dance (from last night's ep) and you'll see what I mean.
Meanwhile, boy does Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) need to catch a break. The acting from Chandler and Kitsch in that final scene was exactly what it needed to be to stay true to the realistic nature of the show, but man was I hoping Coach Taylor would stop and listen for once, so he could understand the situation.
Another performance I'm digging? Brad Leland's (Buddy Garrity). I felt so badly for him last night, first when Lyla (Minka Kelly) broke the news to him that his ex-wife was getting married, and then again when he was at her door pouring his heart and soul out to her in the hopes that she would rekindle some of her feelings for him. Is it just me, or does this storyline seem like it still has somewhere to go in terms of their relationship (check out his ex's face just as she closes the door on him)?
What a well done episode. Even with the cheesy tornado F/X and the use of "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" (I actually laughed real hard during that part).
The first two episodes of this third season have been phenomenal. Truly a return to form after the cruddy Season 2 and its murder subplot. (Granted, it gave us some great Tyra-Landry scenes but it's not a season I'll be revisiting again anytime soon.)
I get the full-on goosebumps every time the opening credits play (Best Theme Song Ever? It just might be.),
The scenes with Matt and his grandmother break my heart into a million little pieces, as my grandmother is currently going through the same stages of dementia, and although I don't spend as much time with her as Matt does with his, it hits home just the same.
And I am just elated by the Matt-Julie development. Sure, Julie has been a ***** for the better part of the last two seasons, but I love their chemistry and hated to see them completely avoid each other all last season.
Dear Lord, do I love Tami Taylor. Mmm.
I'll get back to writing about this show in a few, particularly the Smash storyline, and everything else I've neglected, since I know there at least a couple of you out there who like to hear what I have to say (Thanks, VVD!).
I. LOVE. THIS. SHOW.
So much. SO. Much.
