Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 6 I found myself savoring the tiniest moments this week. Replaying Gracie Belle in her alien voice all “Mama, I need more juice” outside church was my private joke to myself all week. Sometimes when Buddy Garrity is trying to fix you up with his two-years-younger son, all you can do is rely on your toddler sister to bail you out. Full Story

Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 5 This week’s FNL is the most cohesive version of ‘the new class’ we’ve seen. They saw what they needed to do and gave us a group of boys ready and willing to bond, to see the greatness in what they’ve been given as a team. Full Story

Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 4 I am writing this from a southern cottage of sorts. It’s a new thing for my family to go to so we can spend time together. It’s fun – and sunny– but because my dad is basically a crazy person it also means that I answer questions like “where are you going” constantly, often when the answer is ‘to the cupboard’ or ‘to the bathroom’. Full Story

Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 3 There are people who deal with teenage girls every single day, I’ve been realizing. Maybe some of them are you. And you have jobs like this, where you work hard and then ungrateful wretches just sort of smirk out at you from under their hair. Full Story

Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 2 It’s funny how the ones that break your heart aren’t usually the saddest. They’re the ones that look, on the surface, to have promise, to be hopeful, to bring the year ahead some focus and drive and excitement. Full Story

Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 1 Spoilers abound below. If you are waiting for the spring broadcast, be warned. It shouldn’t be any surprise to anyone who reads here often to learn that Friday Night Lights is precious. To me, so much so that I went to Austin to stalk the set last year (I don’t know what’s still standing, but if you want the chills this show provides over and over again, all it takes is going to stand in Herrmann field, where the Panthers play…), and such that the decision to recap this final season of the show was, sing it with me, bittersweet. Full Story

Bless you, Julie Taylor

Duana just perked up. Why are we blessing her? For turning 21, having a party in Vegas, and wearing the most demure dress that Vegas has probably ever seen. I love Aimee Teegarden for this so f-cking much. Most of these twats, when they host a party there, it’s an excuse to get their tits up and advertise the fact that they’re wearing no panties. Full Story

Mad Men won for Best Drama. Next year, in its final season, hopefully it will be Friday Night Lights. Next year, maybe Kyle Chandler and Jon Hamm can sit next to each other and make our lives. You know what the f-cking pisser is? At press time I can’t find one, NOT ONE, photo of Kyle Chandler. Really? Is that how far down he is on the list? Who’s managing this list. Full Story

Tami Taylor FINALLY gets some love

And Eric Taylor too. And Friday Night Lights. We’re going into our final season and the TV Academy, at long last, has acknowledged one of the best shows, if not THE best show, of a generation. A show you aren’t watching because you’re too busy with those f-cking losers on The Bachelor. Full Story

Written by Jacek If you read this site on even a casual basis, you know how much we love Friday Night Lights and that it’s a shame it doesn’t get more attention cause the Minivan loves sh-tty shows. Lainey’s gone on about why the show is so great but I’ve never tossed in my two cents. Full Story

Many of you have emailed re: Taylor Kitsch and the comments from Friday Night Lights producer Jason Katims that he’s leaving the show. You have anticipated that I’ll be sad. Quite the opposite actually. Kitsch will no longer be a regular featured player on FNL because he’s headlining his own Disney blockbuster John Carter of Mars which, if successful, could become a franchise. Full Story

How to Post Grad

Gilmore Girls + Friday Night Lights… I was never hooked on Rory and Lorelei. But I am terribly, terribly fond of Alexis Bledel. As you know, I’m also balls crazy about Friday Night Lights. Friday Night Lights actors are almost always ignored. So how about some love for Zach Gilford and his co-star Alexis Bledel at Teen Choice last night to promote Post Grad? It doesn’t look super original. Full Story

He’s getting papped now!

These are not the best photos of Taylor Kitsch. The combination of beard and the way his hair is flipped out at the sides… I can’t defend it. At least he doesn’t care though. At least it’s not planned that way. But how proud are we that he’s getting papped at LAX? Yesterday, TK on his way out. Full Story
