first couple episodes were directed by peter berg who did the film version and produces the series. they’re stuck in the same style as the film visually and musically. i have less problem with the visual style because it works, but the post rock music that is supposed to make you feel like every moment is of the greatest importance, can be a little grating when you pay attention to it. i thought the film was pretty good, but didn’t really think i wanted to see an entire series worth of the same stuff. after a couple episodes, though, it grabs you pretty good.
coach taylor and the team have to deal with all the pressure of being the only good thing in a crappy little fictional texas town. they get the threats when they don’t win right away and the benefits (hot chicks and superstar status) when they do win. a good start.Watched on TV
