Do you like mysteries but not like, actually hard to solve or uncomfortable ones, but where the people you want to have done it, did it, and you don’t actually have to think too much about it afterward?

Did you know that Friday Night Lights premiered 10 years ago this week? For some of us it’s been a decade of Clear Eyes and Full Hearts. For others, ahem, those of you who ignored my nagging and only just gave in recently, it’s been a couple of years. For all of us, it’s been …well… it’s been hard, missing them so much. Full Story
