I've been hoping to come back to FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS when it got better. But I guess that won't be soon.
On the other hand, I'm very much enjoying Neal Stephenson's The Confusion
These here "books" are a pretty good way to spend a few evenings.

Interesting, because Variety just blogged about how the show is great, minus the Landry murder plot. I've still been watching, but I am frustrated that in addition to the crazy plot, the writers seem to be throwing in a slew of new characters (Tami's sister, in-home nurse, Landry's dad, women's soccer coach, Glenn) instead of dealing with the regulars.
FNL is definitely getting back its mojo, but the Landry murder plot is still working its way through the digestive tract. I don't have a problem with many of the new characters. Tami's sister makes an interesting counterpart to Tami, showing the road not travelled. The joy of FNL is it allows the audience to recognise these parallels without aid of flashing neon signs or on the nose dialogue to underline them.
