This entry contains little or no political content.  
As I sit and listen to the presidential debate and my husband's growing ire of political bitchiness and doublespeak, I am going to squee about two TV shows that I've immersed myself in for the last few weeks.

Friday Night Lights and Supernatural, baby.  For the EYE CANDY, y'all.

I'm mean, they really are great shows.  Well shot, well written and well acted, but oh, man.  The prettiness.

I think it's great that they've managed to go three+ seasons of Supernatural without love interests for the boys..  I love that.  I mean, the storyline doesn't exactly lend itself to that, and to hear Nolan, Sam and Dean should just kiss already and get it over with (I hit him every time he makes disparaging remarks about Sammy's sexuality, by the way.  He's sensitive!) but the way the new season is going is just brilliant.  I can't wait.  The age old tale of brother against brother.  Epic.  And the fact that Nolan and Dean have the same 'shoot first and ask questions later' attitude.  And the MUSIC...  and the CAR...  Le sigh.

But Friday Night Lights.  Guhuhuhuhuh. jandjsalmon ,airmidm  andseegrim  all told me to watch it years ago, it seems like.  But as a theatre teacher in West Texas, I RAIL against football.  I loathe it.  Can't stand it.  The coaches pay grade is WAY above anyone else's...  And why?  Because they teach boys how to play a GAME.  (I have no illusions about what I do.  I live in a world of pretend, but let me have my prejudices.)  Anyway, I watched the first two episodes at the beginning of June, and then got distracted by something sparkly, but I'm back, and I've watched a GLUT of it in the last two weeks.  Now, I live in West Texas, and I have first hand experience with the actual football team the Dillon Panthers are based on, and let me tell you, that cult-like mentality?  With the whole town living and breathing for the football players?  True. Story.  It's scary-spooky.

But I ignored the football, and focused on the people.  Coach?  Cute as a button.  Mrs. Coach?  Sexy as all get out.  Riggins?  (Kelly, I thought Greg was cute enough before?  But now I gotta say I'm a little jealous of Tracey.)  The sheer BEAUTY that is Taylor Kitsch should not be allowed.  I mean, complexion?  Eyes?  Smile?  I seriously want to die.  And I know it's sacrilege, but I actually want him and Lila to get together.  I want him to get what he wants.  I can't help it..  And really, do NOT even get me started on Matt Saracen.  Fricking adorable.  The unsure demeanor, the soulful eyes, the shoulders? (The lips?)  I wanted to punch Julie right in her forehead for dumping him. (And I realize that they're supposed to be in high school, but whatever.)  I adore, adore, adore him.  The end of season two was SO sad.  I almost cried.  And I'm not admitting anything, but I may have even squealed and gotten chills at some of the football parts.  Maybe.

In other news, I'm newly with the Anderson Talent Agency, so I can start actually working again and being productive, since I really have a LOT of spare time on my hands.  So cross your fingers for voiceovers and commercials.  Or a walk-on or extra in FNL.  (I would die...  giggle hysterically and DIE.)

And my sweet Katie Bell is a sick puppy dog  She might have adrenal problems or diabetes.  Poor baby.  She's curled up next to me, being her sweet self.

That's all the news.  Back to listening to Nolan swear at the television...

*snickers* I love it when people come to FNL late and wonder why they missed out all along! FNL RULES. Coach is hawt. Riggins *swoon* I love that show like nobody's business!

Go check out some more eye candy of the vampire kind.

I fought against it for so long... but I just can't anymore!

Good luck with the talent agency!

Poor Katie Bell *pats her* I hope she's feeling better soon.

Thank you, thank you.

Yes yes yes yes re: supernatural and Sammy and the whole storyline for this season and everything.

and oh no... Katie Bell. :(
seegrim: autumn leavesseegrim on October 8th, 2008 02:37 am (UTC)
Oh my gosh, I would DIE! if you were ever needed on the set of FNL. I'd fly down and pretend we were inseparable. Like maybe I needed your marrow or something less freaky.

Wow. That was incredibly psycho sounding. :D

And I just realized I don't have a Matt Saracen icon on this account. :(

Hugs to Katie Bell. And yes, I just gave hugs to your dog. I must like you.

Carrie Leigh: nice asscarrie_leigh on October 8th, 2008 03:26 am (UTC)
You could be my PA. :D
Jandy the Gnome Whisperer: Tim - Chocolatejandjsalmon on October 8th, 2008 02:38 am (UTC)
He's sensitive!
*giggles madly*

SOOO much to talk about in one brilliant post!

Firstly, I'm a Sammy girl - and he is TOTALLY not gay - though the rebel in me has read the occasional Wincest fic.... how could I NOT? *coughs* But yes, GREAT show!

And now FNL. *does happy dance of joy that you like it too*

I'm a little jealous of Tracey too - don't worry. Though while writing her smutting him? Yeah - one of the best mental images ever. And I take my role of being the mod who makes the Taylor Kitsch Comm pretty VERY seriously. ;)

We'll pretend you didn't say that about Lyla... because y'all know how I feel about THAT manipulative cow (*coughs* who is now trying to change my boy because it will get HER farther - seriously, had Six not got hurt she'd never have condescended to get NEAR Tim) but yeah - I can see what you mean about him deserving what he wants. He's been through so much and is so damaged and he needs some happiness in his life that doesn't come from a bottle. But yes - I'm all squeeful. Now, I have to go back to the debate....it's not even MY country and yet Jay and I are watching. *sighs*

Re: He's sensitive!
Nolan is forever mocking Sammy. It's just not nice.

Where is the Taylor Kitsch comm that you speak of?

Well, at least I understand the Lila hate now. I went off on magnetic_wave about how I loathe Julie... so yeah. I get it.

Re: He's sensitive!
taylorkitsch - I know, the person who picked was fairly uncreative with the name thing. ;)

I'm not a huge fan of Julie either - though I think she is fairly typical of 16 years olds. *pats Matty*

I'm so excited and happy with Supernatural this season. Everything I was hoping to see happen is happening, and they're doing it all even better than I hoped. This season is going to be so epic, I can tell.

And yes, THE PRETTINESS. When I was in Japan this summer I ended up rewatching all three seasons of Supernatural because I was like, 'I miss America. I need some good ol' American boys.' :D

And they are! While listening to BOC and AC/DC. :D

Those two shows really bring the eye candy. Thanks for posting Supernatural squee, it reminded me I never finished watching Season Three, and seriously, I need Dean Winchester in my life.

Also Friday Night Lights is pretty much the most amazing show ever. ♥

I heartily agree with teh pretties, but can you please warn for spoilers, darl? We're a few eps behind in SPN over here. Ta.

Also, I agree both with you assesments of Coach, Riggs, Matty and Mrs. Coach, AND Sammy's sexuality. I'm LOLing at N for the Wincest, too :P
Numbaby: SAMMICHnumbaby on October 8th, 2008 08:26 am (UTC)

Sry, forgot to say before, good on you and good luck eith the new agency! If you do make it onto the set, glomp Mrs. Coach and Matty for me, will you? :D
Carrie Leigh: Dean handcarrie_leigh on October 8th, 2008 11:49 am (UTC)
I was careful not to write any spolers, just for that reason.
I'm just me: shorts falling off! yum.airmidm on October 8th, 2008 10:51 am (UTC)
First off... CONGRATS! *crossing fingers for you* That is so exciting! [You know all of us would miraculously show up at your door if you did get on FNL...don't you? ;) ]

*hugs Katie Bell* I hope that you can find out exactly what is wrong and get it managed so she isn't miserable. Poor puppy. :(

Okay *clears throat and Squees* I am a Dean girl but adore Sammy as well. *nods* I am with Nolan though on the whole Wincest/they need to kiss and get it over with thing. ;) The car *swoons* The MUSIC *dies* Yeah, total fangirl, lol!


(Kelly, I thought Greg was cute enough before? But now I gotta say I'm a little jealous of Tracey.)
So am I and he lives in my head. Aren't I lucky that he prefers to walk around either in next to nothing or nothing at all. ;) I want to be Tracey most days, how weird is that?!

I love love love FNL!

Principal Mrs. Coach rocks! When she re-appropriated the money...priceless!

And yes, the comment about the utter cow is being studiously ignored, hon.

Tim is damaged and needs a girlfriend who won't try and change him for her own ends and who won't aid and abet his drinking. *nods* I have yet to see any girl on the show that would actually be good for him. He needs someone who isn't going to tell him what a failure he is and encourage him to do something with his life.

I adore Coach, even when I want to smack him for being an arse. What he is doing for Smash is awesome!

But, you know what... *ducks* I am more a Landry girl than a Matt girl...

Tyra is my favourite school-aged girl on the show. In fact, I vote she kicks some sense into the *cow* ... either that or verbally give her a smack down like she did the VP last week. ;)
