Together we can bring about change

You guys, Steph forwarded me some alarming and disturbing news this morning. Friday Night Lights is in danger of being canceled. I don't think you understand what this means. It means, in a nutshell, that my life will be over.

I am coming to you as my Internet friends and asking, nay begging, you to inundate NBC with emails and letters, etc. asking them to keep FNL on forever because it's the best show in the entire universe. I'm not even kidding, it's one of the best shows that's ever been sent through the magic box in my living room, and while TV maybe shouldn't be given this much importance, life without it would be less bright.

Oh NO! FNL is definitely the best - oh and Lost. Oh and where is your lost post by the way?

I am so troubled by Tim Riggins and the poor choices he makes and the bad luck that is his life. When will he get a break? And if Tyra stomps on Landry's heart, I'm going to be ticked.

Oh...i see a quid pro quo opportunity...since I told you about this and if I advocate for your show by composing a letter to save FNL...will you vote for my candidate on March 4? Yeah, I'm pretty sure what I just proposed is illegal or at least unethical, but whatever. Is there a deal here?

Lost post found.

I'll quid pro quo you for another candidate.

That sounds dirty.

I'm into this bit (from your link), "This is not Lost; there's no complicated mythology to learn. If you've ever been a person, known a person or wondered about becoming a person, you'll get Friday Night Lights."

I love FNL, but I'm preparing for the worst. NBC is not a patron of the arts, they are a capitalist monolith selling units of airwaves to advertisers. Unfortunately, well-written, insightful, and real human dramas do not come at a premium.

I'd like to see it relocated to HBO at the corner of Holy Shit and No Fucking Way, with a back to back pairing with The Wire. Then, when all of the Chosen Ones are inside watching for two hours, the rest of the world can burn down to the fucking ground.

Oh, FNL.
