Yesterday I watched the Battlestar Galactica trailer and started counting down the days until this show returns on January 16th. Today NBC unveiled their winter schedule, and while there was some other information in there that I'm sure I'll examine more closely later on, one bit stuck out like a bright beacon of hope. Friday Night Lights is returning to network TV on that very same evening. My cup and DVR runneth over.
Yeah, they are both airing at 9 o'clock, but thanks to the wondrous advances in modern technology, I'm able to record both. Yes, I know there will be problems when Dollhouse debuts in that same time slot in February (which is not doing any favors for this poor new series), but let me get through January first.
I know that this won't be a problem for those folks out there who have DirecTV and have already watched Friday Night Lights, but not all of us were able to. So I saw the premiere, thanks to a screener, got beyond excited by the promising new season, and then have had to sit and impatiently wait for NBC to air it. Which, to be honest, I kind of thought might not actually happen. I'm a little gun shy lately and more than a bit skeptical, and while I know it was in their plan and part of the deal, I just worried that something would happen, or that Crusoe would be this fabulous amazing hit and they wouldn't need to bring back my beloved FNL, but thankfully I appear to have worried for naught.
I can't wait to see what happens on FNL. I've tried hard to avoid "spoilers," and whatnot, and really, if I had the energy would be jumping up and down with anticipation for both BSG and FNL.
Are you excited? Did you already watch FNL and deem this not a big deal? Do you watch either of these shows? Let us know.
