I will try not to be obnoxious and brag about the fact that I have DirectTV and have already seen the most recent season of “Friday Night Lights.” And I’ll also try to shut up about the fact that it’s as good as seasons one and three, or that episode six is the single most devastating episode of this entire television season.
I’ll just say this: It’s good, people. Really fucking good. They shook it up, brought in new characters, re-stacked the obstacles, and threw everyone into the muck. This show … I swear to God, every episode makes me want to be a better person. I sort of envy those who haven’t seen it, yet. You have 12 episodes of achy, bittersweet goodness look forward to.
Here’s NBC’s trailer for the new season. The new season kicks off May 7th.
