I vaguely remember when this tv series came on (circa 2006) and although the commercials seemed appealing I wasn't sure where I was going to find the time for another tv show. Well, years later after friend after friend told me how much I would like it, I've finally finished watching all five seasons.
What can I say about it? To start, I absolutely loved it. I'm sort of glad I got into after the seasons were available on Netflix because I'm not sure I could have waited a week in between each episode or months for the next season. Poor Jake had to deal with me monopolizing the tv the past few Saturdays, which I don't feel bad about because I liked the show too much to turn it off.
I thought I might be able to narrow down my favorite characters to a select few, but it turns out I love almost the entire cast. What I will say is despite a large portion of the cast changing midway through, I preferred the characters in the later seasons. I loved the stories early on too, but there was something about East Dillon that really hooked me. Coach Eric Taylor and his wife, Tami were hands down the reason I kept watching though. They truly had a great marriage and the show was only enhanced by the characters coming in and out of their lives. Of course, Tim Riggins wasn't tough on the eyes either.
Since I literally just finished the watching the last season I could probably talk about the show for hours, but I don't want to overshare and spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it. If you haven't watched the series I would highly recommend it- you can find all five seasons on Netflix and it won't take you more than a month to get through it, talk about $8 well spent.
