Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.  
Guess who owns the first series of Ultimate Force on DVD? Oh right, that would be me. Shameless, I am indeed.

Anyone who hasn't joined in yet there's the BSG Friending Meme, to which we need more fans to chat and squee with as this LONGASS HIATUS OF DOOM continues to kick our butts until the season starts back up again sometime next year. With that, I welcome all new friends made from that meme.

I haven't quite finished FNL as I thought I would by this week, but I'm getting there. Here are my thoughts so far:

I love Tyra. Admittingly I came into this show loving Adrianne so getting me to love Tyra was all on her 'cause it's JESS from SPN! There wasn't much about her character in the beginning other than she was Tim's girlfriend, although that status is quite an on/off again sort of thing, and her just being here and there in some kind of manner (which I liked, since any scene with Tyra is great for me). After seeing "What To Do While You're Waiting" we see further development of her character and background of her family situation, and I cheered for her when she stood up to her mother. I have yet to see passed that episode as of yet, but my love for Tyra continues to grow.

For other characters, I definitely love Coach Taylor and his wife. I love their interactions and how they manage to deal with the craziness within the small town that worships football, and how Coach Taylor deals with the kids on his team and I certainly think he's a good role model, as is his wife. I love have a soft spot for Matt, who is a sweetheart and kind of clueless when it comes to the girl thing.

The triangle between Tim, Jason and Lyla is complicated. The act itself of Lyla and Tim hooking up while Jason is paralyzed and in the hospital trying to regain his strength again was horrible, even if they were trying to deal with their emotions. The betrayal of that is kind of an unforgiveable act, but I felt sorry for Lyla. The interesting thing is in the beginning I didn't quite like her at first, she has this Perfect Princess label stapled to her and was living in a fantasyland, which is understandable but I'm glad Jason slapped some sense into the girl, even if it meant yelling in her face. I also felt bad because in "It's Different For Girls" she was toughing it all out while the entire school was isolating her and being mean because of what she'd done, and she broke down but bounced back up again in the end. So it was nice that she just managed to deal with it instead of hiding from it.

I don't think Jason should forgive Lyla that easily. But that's just me, IDK. I think time apart would do them best. It could give them a chance to just find out who they are and then perhaps they could come around again.

Does anyone know if there's a complied list of all the music featured in FNL, or a community of some sort? Somehow I can't find anything that has all songs from each episode.

TYRA IS SO AWESOME. And she keeps getting better and better, for serious. My love for her knows no bounds.
Renée: Ruby. Amazing crack.rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2008 11:25 pm (UTC)
She is pure love. ♥ If anything when started FNL I would stay just for her character, I now stay not just for her but for the entire show because, damn, am I addicted.

I LOVE TYRA. She's one of my favourite characters on the show, and Adrienne is such an amazing actress. She really makes you feel for Tyra, and I love it, since if a lesser actress had played her I'm not sure I would have liked the character nearly as much.
Renée: Blair Waldorf.rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2008 11:24 pm (UTC)
That's exactly how I feel, too. There's so many things about Tyra that you can't help but to love her, and I agree it wouldn't be the same kind of love if someone else had played her. Adrianne has something special, and because I liked her before I started watching FNL I knew I was in for a treat. She hasn't disappointed me and I can't wait to finish watching. :)

I'm in the middle of season 1.
I feel sorry for Lyla too, but I agree, at first I didn't like her much but she develops well. And yeah, they were so fucking harsh on her.
That girl needs snuggles.
And I mean, Jason was kind of being a dick. Understandable, but yeah.
I think Jason realized he was pushing her away, hence the forgiveness.
But um, his soltuion wasn't a good idea.

It's definitely sending mixed signals for them both, because I do understand that he doesn't want to hate Lyla but at the same time she cheated on him with his best friend. That's not something you just let go that easily. I do believe that Lyla loves Jason and cares for Tim at the same time, and both of them love her too. It's such a complicated thing, and that's what causes such a big mess. Plus Jason has been through something traumatic and yeah, even if Lyla had gone to see him everyday in the hospital she was also seeing Tim during that time as well.

Oy, you'd think this kind of drama would be tiring but it all makes sense, in a very compliced sort of way. So I feel sorry for them all.

I just finished Friday Night Lights last week!

Season 1 Tyra was my absolute favorite! Have you gotten to season 2 yet? Because I do still love Tyra... but her storyline's fairly crap. :(

Now Matt's my favorite. And Zach Gilford plays clueless SO WELL. :D

I have yet to finish S1 let alone start S2, but it's getting there. I took a break midway in the middle of this week to finish some RL stuff but I plan on finishing S1 by this weekend.

I'm not reading ahead of what happens in S2 regarding Tyra's storyline, since I just go by what I watch instead of what I read (aside from episode descriptions). But she'll forever be love for me, no matter what crap storyline she gets. Adrianne has corrupted me, she definitely has. ;)

Hee! Matt is such a sweet character. When he's around Julie sometimes I feel like saying, "dude, stop stuttering like a fool and just say what you feel!" but it's cute anyway.
