It's baaaaaack

I promise I will not spend the next seven months talking about Friday Night Lights BUT....the first season came out on DVD last week and so far, my sister-in-law locked herself in the basement and watched almost the entire season in one sitting, my sister and her roommate have been catching up and I drove straight from the airport to Corey's where we watched five episodes in a row even though I'm so tired I want to die.

So honestly, if you haven't taken my advice yet, you can march yourself down to Target, get the first season, and get ready for the season premiere on October 5.

I also promise this blog will go back to being interesting shortly. I'm suffering from a wee case of writer's block but I think I'm getting over it.

Mine came on Thursday. In a case of charity, loco-ness, or just trying to get more people to watch the show, I gave my discs to my best friend whose gone for a month. Before I had a chance to watch them.

I'm going to check it out, all thanks to you. As soon as I'm all caught up on Gilmore Girls (I watched the first five seasons in a MONTH, that's how awesome it is), I'm totally getting Friday Night Lights.

It's on sale at Target right NOW! The best $19.99 you will spend (Sherpa - I have this little crack in my heart for you. You might need to just buy it again!)

Yes, but are we okay with Rosie joining the cast.

I worry that it will be the kiss of death!

not to worry, i read this on TV review site Pajiba:

"Completing the triptych of good TV news, a few weeks ago I told you that it was looking like Rosie was going to be appearing on my beloved “Friday Night Lights” as the tough and short-tempered soccer coach. Happily, this has not come to pass! If the little online version of me could drop to its knees and praise Jeebus, Allah and Adonai, he’d be doing so right now. He’d also make a further prayer while he was down there, because rumor has it that both sides still want to get Rosie on the show in some way. Please no, I would pray. There’s just no call for Rosie staining the best show on network TV (and I hope you’re all happy — I went out of my way to avoid making any cupcake references until I blew it with this parenthetical). I don’t want it!"

The Mrs and I religiously shut the house down crawl up together into a comfy place, and watch FNL together every week in glorious monster sized HD goodness. The little opening guitar licks of the soundtrack are about at good as hearing the Good Humor man 30 years ago running through the neighborhood.

Please no Rosie.
