I guess I should talk about Friday Night Lights, which has gotten very dark and depressing. What Variety called a "highly dramatic" plot with Tyra and Landry turned out to be a murder...yep, Landry killed the guy who tried to rape Tyra last season when he returned, and then the two dumped his body in a river. Meanwhile, Julie is sick of Matt. Matt's grandma is loopier than ever and he's brought in a tough in-home nurse. Tami is crying nonstop and wondering why she wanted to live apart from Eric (hmm, ME TOO!). Eric is not really loving his new job at TMU. The new Panthers coach is pissing off Riggins and Street. Buddy is miserable about his divorce, and is making his wife and her new guy both miserable. Lyla is trying to fill the void in her life with Jesus, and I'm not sure she's even fooling herself. The only people not entirely depressed are Smash (and we've seen him for 2 or 3 scenes) and Riggins (and he is still pining after Lyla). There is no comic relief, via Landry or Buddy or whoever. And Waverly has disappeared. I mean, I guess we've set up a lot to fix over the season...but it's just so crazy. Would Tami and Eric really have chosen to live apart with a new baby? I thought for sure Eric was going to pick the Panthers and things would be back to normal. And the murder? Yeesh. I feel like Tyra and Landry's fledgling romance could have included enough drama.
