Friday Night Love
October 1st, 2010
One of the things about having a new baby is that you spend a lot of time hanging out with said baby in your arms — particularly if you’re trying to breastfeed. This downtime presents an opportunity to spend some quality time with your television, if you so desire. And I do. We watch almost no TV normally, but in the early weeks post-partum, Josh and I now have a tradition (apparently — twice makes a tradition, right?) of tackling a TV show on DVD.
With Miss Mouse, I made him watch multiple seasons of Dawson’s Creek with me. This time, we’ve discovered the world of Friday Night Lights and are blazing our way through Season 1.
I know. High school football teen drama series? Seriously? Yes, seriously. And I love it.
It’s got a vaguely Dawson’s Creek-esqe flavor to it, though I will admit (painfully) that the acting, plot and pretty much everything else is better in Friday Night Lights.
A large part of my personal enjoyment of the show stems from this. Or rather, from him.
