This is Tina, and I’m from Waco.

Friday Night Lights is a really good show if you feel like watching spectacular storytelling driven by compelling characters, crying hysterically, and/or being incredibly envious of the show’s creators for thinking this up instead of you. I can’t find a single thing to complain about, except this character introduced in a later season named Becky, who is so annoying I could just die. Why are all TV Beckys annoying? Does this mean I’m annoying?!?!

Anyway, I can tolerate Becky soiling my name because she’s usually in a scene with Tim Riggins, who is THE BEST. He’s introduced as a functionally retarded alcoholic; this doesn’t change much throughout the show, but they do give him more depth in later episodes. I could probably go on and on about how I think the writers peeled back his layers in a beautifully nuanced way that you don’t see executed very well on a lot of network television shows… but instead I’m just gonna post of video of him prank calling a Christian radio station.
