'Friday Night' Divisions
Unfortunately, things weren't quite as honky-dorey on the East Dillon Lions' sidelines.
But hey, at least they finished the game this week. And scored a touchdown! But, the team has to come together and gel if they want to start winning some games. Right now, they're letting their differences and their egos divide them. In the case of Luke Cafferty, he's allowing his incessant need for constant stroking and pats on the back from Coach get in his way of being a fantastic player at East. He did seem to finally get it at the end (after a house call from Coach Taylor). Can I just say, again, how much I'm loving Riggins helping out Coach Taylor and the Lions??!! Best idea of the season!
Meanwhile, it seems that Crazy Artist is helping Matt while Julie may be holding him back. Ultimately, if art makes Matt happy, and it seemed there at the end that it does when he had that "Ah ha!" moment with the sculpture, then staying in Dillon isn't the best option for him. But, Julie is in Dillon and will be for at least the remainder of the school year. It's the classic dilemma of whether to follow your heart or your inner drive to pursue your dream. Some times, the two are congruent, but most of the time they are not. Matt will have to decide, but something tells me that Julie may decide for him. I think Crazy Artist had a bigger impact on her than Matt realizes. Whatever happens, this show is sure to make is realistic and well-written.
Friday Night Lights is all-new and commercial-free Wednesday nights on DirecTV's 101. The fourth season will be seen in its entirety next year on NBC.
