Friday Night Lights Finally

I admit it.  I am a TV junkie.  I have become involved in so many shows and would be LOST without my DVR.  Speaking of LOST they have me tightly wrapped around their finger with that one.  I'm thinking they are all redeeming themselves now from their wayward ways prior to the crash. It's so confusing.  I would like to see a happy flash sideways ending for all of them. 

Some of my other favorites are Glee, Saving Grace, Flashforward, Heroes, Ghost Whisperer, Medium and now Happy Town which believe me is not Happy and not for everyone.  As far as reality shows I like American Idol which I think this might be our last one. ( Lee and Crystal are my favorites) . Dancing With The Stars is fun to watch and right now they are all really good.  Of course Survivor has to be on the list.  Please, please vote Russell off!

Tom is more in to news and golf.  Mom prefers classic movies and the older series like Mash and especially Andy Griffith.  I have to agree with her on that one.  Who doesn't love Pa, Opie and Barney! 

One show we all like is Friday Night Lights. It is just the best show when it comes to acting and story line.  The characters are so believable.  It's more about life and relationships in a small town than it is about football.  We have been watching it since it started years ago and it just keeps getting better and better. 

Over a year ago, my friends Becky and Christie and I went to lunch at a local Mexican hot spot in Dallas called El Taquito.  It doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is great.  It's usually packed with people and this day was busy as usual. 

While we were waiting on our food, in the door walked a very tall man and it didn't take Becky and I long to figure out who he was.  It was Buddy (Brad Leland) from the show.  He sat at the table right behind us and we immediately turned into silliness. 

Buddy from the show.

With the cute coach.

He was so gracious and didn't mind the attention at all.

Christie, Me, Brad and Becky.

The show started again on NBC last night.  It did not disappoint.  This is going to be a really interesting season.

Try It.


  1. Look at you hob-nobbin! :) I don't watch much tv, but we watch some stuff on Netflix. I LOVED Weeds, and we're waiting for the next season to come out on there. I like LOST but don't think I've watched past the 2nd (or 3rd?) yr. Have to get caught up. Hear good things about GLEE, but haven't seen it yet! Remember the show about the 1940's a LONG time ago with that cute coach in it? I loved that show.

  2. I don't know the guy but he looks nice and was nice to pose with you girls! I do love "LOST" but have quit trying to figure it out....will miss the characters!
    Steve and I love Amazing Race and are rooting for the Cowboys...they are sooooo funny!
    Am Idol is the only one I really like! I think Lee/Crystal or Casey will be IT! And of course, our fav...."24" is in its last moments! I'll miss that but hear they are making a movie! That's all the TV I watch ...with an occasional HGTV! Nothing to watch in the summer at all!

  3. Well I forgot amazing race on my list. I'm with you. I'm rooting for the cowboys too. They are so country and have come so far. The models are rude and the brothers? Not sure want to say about them. The finale is tomorrow. Here's to the cowboys!
