Just look at all the positive reviews the nation's harshest critics have given the show. Think about how many times I, your beloved friend, sister, cousin, and stranger, have referenced the show, or implored you to watch.
The characters on this show are real and lovable. Invite them into your home, you won't be sorry! And, to boot! you can watch all of last season's episodes online. Start with the pilot. At least give me 42 minutes worth of devotion. If you aren't hooked by then, fine. At least you gave it a shot.
For those of you who are watchers, a list of spoilers for Season II have been posted to one of my everyday reads. If you want to be surprised, skip this list.
- One of the show's big couples calls it quits.
- Someone dies.
- Someone commits murder.
- The Panthers have a new coach.
- Someone finds Jesus.
- Matt's grandma gets a live-in nurse. (She's rumored to be in her 20's!!!)
- Remember the name Gracie.
- Tami makes a new friend.
- There's a gratuitous locker-room shower scene within the first two episodes.
- It ain't over between Tim and Lyla.
The Emmy nominations are announced tomorrow. I don't want to get my hopes up for any nods; it's rare that critically acclaimed, but vastly underrated freshman shows get credit when it's due, but I'll hold my breath for Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, and Zach Gilford, who most definitely deserve nominations--and the whole show for Dramatic series. Expect jubilation and glee tomorrow if any are announced.
And if you love me, please please please watch this show so our relationship can have another point of connection.
If you haven't been watching, please feel free to explain your petty excuses to me in the comments. For those who do watch (Kendall, Mallory, Mom, Michele, Mel, Juan) please feel free to add your persuasive comments.
