30 Days of TV: Day Two

Since I'm far too lazy to link back to all the posts, I made a tag! So click the 30 Days tag for prior entries.

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching: Friday Night Lights

How I love this show! And it's yet another show I started watching due to Grey's Anatomy (the first one was SPN) The episode with Pink Mist Guy, who turned out to be Kyle Chandler, the star of FNL. I liked him enough that I decided to give FNL a look, even though I thought the show was just about football and teenagers. I really am not overly fond of teen shows. Boy, was I wrong! This is one of the best 'little' shows on TV. Set in a small town in TX, the show is actually filmed outside Austin, so it has a sense or 'real' to it you just don't get in a Hollywood posing as another place filmed show. I love the characters - even the teens! - the relationships, the real love these actors obviously have for their characters and their show. Sadly, it's most likely the next season will be the last. It was canceled once, but DirectTV made a deal with NBC - shorter season, they put up money, and it only airs on their satellite network. After it airs there, it is shown on NBC. They have already filmed the upcoming season, and the current one just started its network run. But despite its critical acclaim, and devoted fanbase, just not enough people watch. I'm going to be very sad when I can no longer visit Dillon, Texas every week.
