I haven't watched the episode from this week yet (it is on my DVR), but I wondered if anyone else was watching this show?


I really enjoy it. I like how the storylines continue from week to week, but they don't focus on any one story for too long - which usually results in the audience getting burned out.

I watch. I LOVE this show. I didn't think I would since I'm NOT a football fan. But, for some reason I watched the first episode and got hooked on the characters. Just love them.

I'm not a football fan either - at all. I wasn't sure about this show because well.. it's a football show, but I have to say they've done a good job not making it ALL about football. They show us different sides of a town where football makes the decisions. I really enjoy it.


Do you have anyone in particular that you like/dislike?

Even the characters that I thought I disliked at the beginning (like Buddy Garrety) have shown a side of them that makes them likeable.

My favorite, by far, is Matt Saracen. He's the kind of kid I could have seen myself falling for in high school, lol. But other favorites are also Smash's mother Mrs. Williams, and Tami Taylor.

I really, really like this show. It shows so many different sides to the characters.


I'm glad that Julie decided against sex with Matt. I just don't think she's ready for that.


I like the way her mom and dad handled it. Though I often think they are WAY too lenient with her.


Riggins got his butt kicked. Not surprising.


I think Jason and Lyla will break up and I think it'll be best for Lyla. I like her, but just don't really like her with Jason for some reason.


So, Lyla's dad slept with Tyra's mom? Nice. I can see the fallout from that will happen for the next few episodes.
