We finished Friday Night Lights the other night. I won't say anything spoilery because I hope the lot of you who haven't seen it will go watch it right this minute - I know, it's about football, but trust me okay? -but. I will just say that while I did not want it to end and I will miss the Taylors so much, I think the last episode was awesome. Every beat of it was perfect. And the ending was so satisfying, echoing one of my biggest Feels about this show: people might get put through the wringer, and it is about Real People With Real Problems stuff...but I don't know if I've ever seen a more affirming series, really. It's an interesting mix of realism and hopeful storytelling meant to leave you feeling stronger, somehow, eventually.

It grew on me pretty thoroughly, and I am full of Thoughts. And also deep love for Tim Riggins. I need to find some more FNL fan friends, I think. :)
