Friday Night Lights renewed: time to watch season one on DVD
This is the best television news I have heard in a very long time. The best show on television was renewed, despite low ratings.
So to those of you who haven't watched before: get the season one DVDs as soon as they are released and catch up! I think one of FNL's problems was potential viewers didn't watch the first few episodes, thinking it was just a football show (it's not!) and then decided they would just wait until the DVDs came out to catch up before season 2.
Of course, because no one was watching, whether there would even be a season 2 became a major question. But it has been renewed, so get those DVDs. You really won't regret it.
As someone who watched season 1, I am interested to see where season 2 will pick up. During the off-season (where we left off)? That would be an easy choice because we still have all of our characters in one place. At the beginning of next football season? If so, what happens to Riggins (picture included with this post, of course)? He's a senior, after all. Although I'm not that worried: there is no way this show is going to drop one of its most popular characters.
