Smack for television junkies

Friday Night Lights is the best show on television, and if you're not watching it, you're missing a phenomenon along the lines of My So-Called Life and Six Feet Under.
FNL is light-years better than the awful movie of the same name, and the show is about so much more than football. It's small-town living brought to life by smart writing and wholly endearing characters. I want to be Tami, the mom, when I grow up.
Doubters, when you finally Netflix the first episodes, you will want to ram your head into the television for not watching it live and possibly helping the show win a second season. (The show is on the ropes for renewal, and if it gets killed, I'll have to order some Prozac to get me through the worst of the grief.)
You can watch all of the episodes for free here.

Hmmm...I'm always late when it comes to watching good shows. I didn't start to watch Buffy until halfway through the second season and I completely ignored Firefly until just recently.
