Clear Eyes, Full Hearts…Don’t Miss It – FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS Premieres on ABC Family

September 7, 2010 by  

When people find out that I’m the Editor of a TV blog, I’m inevitability asked to rattle off my list of the best shows on TV. It’s a tough question to answer given that I don’t watch every show on every network. But once I get that caveat out of the way, I emphatically recommend FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. Despite a lot of incredible series in contention, FNL is my personal favorite.

This is old news to long time readers of GIVE ME MY REMOTE and listeners of The TV Talk Podcast. For years I’ve been encouraging all of you to tune in, buy the DVDs, and do whatever it takes to get involved in this incredible show. I’ve heard from many of you who have heeded my advice and, as such, can now count FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS as one of your favorite series too.

However, if you are a person who has heard the effusive praise, but hasn’t yet had the chance to tune in to this amazing television show, it is not too late. In fact, you’re just in time.

Starting Tuesday, September 6th, ABC Family will be airing FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS from the very beginning and in order, every weeknight at 6 p.m. EST. Yes, that’s five nights a week that you get to spend time with the people of Dillon, Texas.

As someone who has seen every episode, I can tell you that my DVR is set. I’m so excited to relive the series through this second run.

I implore you to join me, especially if you’ve never seen FNL. I have yet to meet anyone that gave the show a fair shot and didn’t end up loving it. It’s that good!

Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can’t Lose.

Planning on watching FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS for the first time on ABC Family? Drop us a line and let us know.  Already a fan but watching again from the beginning?  Chime in too. Maybe you can help me convince those of the fence, just what extraordinary TV they might be missing out on.

    It’s because of you and Dan that I caught up on this show (and Amrie) this summer and I LOVE it. I even got a couple of people in my office to watch too. Since I raced through it earlier this summer, it DEMANDS a rewatch at a leisurely pace. So I set my DVR and I will get to rewatch thanks to ABC Family a few episodes at a time (much like i did Gilmore Girls two years ago).

    I don’t know how anyone who says they love TV doesn’t watch this show.

    I watched up to season 2 on Netflix, and I’ll watch the rest on TV. I have literally told all me friends to watch it. I think seven have said they’ll watch it so I feel like an accomplished TV watcher. I’m excited to watch it tonight!!

    If you are a first time watcher I hope you’ll come back and share your thoughts.

    Have you ever thought about including more videos with your site articles to have the readers more interested? What i’m saying is I just read through the whole article of yours and it was really good but because I’m much more of a visual learner, I found that way to be a lot more helpful. well, let me know what you feel.
