Friday Night Lights Spoilers, Etc.
Here's some Friday Night Lights commentary, spoilers and news courtesy of Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello today in his Q&A section ...
Q: So, as I was watching last week's episode of Friday Night Lights, I was once again reminded that the people who choose the Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations are blind, deaf and dumb! Agreed?
A: Agreed. Friday Night Lights is on fire this season, and it sucks that Globe voters failed to recognize that. In fact, in EW's annual best and worst issue (on sale Friday), Smash's farewell episode is singled out by yours truly as one of the best hours of television all season. It was a close call between that episode and the Jeffrey Reiner-directed episode 8, "New York, New York," which featured my favorite Friday Night Lights scene of all time. It was the one where Eric and Tami came to an agreement that buying that fancy new house would be a terrible mistake. The subtle nuances that Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler brought to what could have easily been a throwaway scene just blew my mind. I've watched it, like, 11 times. And there's a good chance I'll make it a perfect dozen today. It's that good. On the Friday Night Lights spoiler front, Landry and Tyra's looming reunion gets sealed with a sorta-kiss in tonight's episode. And looking ahead to the season finale, a beloved character whose name begins with E or T and is cited somewhere in this answer will be fired from his/her job.
