I realize I haven’t posted anything related to TV in awhile. Movies have been keeping me plenty busy… But that’s not it.
I really gave a lot of new shows a try this season, but none of them panned out. “Ringer”, “Person of Interest”, “Terra Nova”, “The Playboy Club”, “Charlie’s Angels”, I watched at least the premiere of all of them, looking for something to recommend. There was nothing though. Nothing worth writing up. “Ringer” is the only one I’m even recording still, and I’m way behind.
That all changed this weekend when I caught the premiere of FX’s new show, “American Horror Story”
I just finished watching the 90 minute final episode of the remarkable television show “Friday Night Lights”. I have to say, I think that’s one of the best finales of all time. My knee jerk reaction is to put it only behind “The Shield” and “The Wire” in terms of final episodes. I laughed, I felt my heartstrings get tugged on. I swear, there were a couple of moments where it got a little dusty in my livingroom. Just a little. I’ve yet to officially figure out my all time tv top ten, but it’s a safe bet that if “FNL” doesn’t make it, it will at least received SERIOUS consideration.
It was a remarkable show for many reasons… the acting, the cast, the directing, its business model. There were a lot of reasons why this show was not only praise worthy but noteworthy.
Now it’s over, and I honestly find myself a little choked up. You know, just a little.
