best season so far and i hope the series continues to improve. of course the acting continues to impress and the writing continues to show the depth of the characters. they’re really coming to life with their complexities and the volume of experiences we’ve been privy to. one complaint is that they sometimes drop storylines without incident – for example the kid who was staying with buddy. he was on the football team, living with buddy and then he’s just gone without mention. other than these sorts of storytelling issues, the series continues to keep me interested and engaged.
a small town football team is actually ripe for a tv show. there’s drama of the game, the drama of the different personalities, the playing time issues, the micro issues of coaching or of learning the game, the town pressures, along with the usual life stuff like being a teenager or parenting one. it’s basically an endless well to draw from in terms of characters and stories.Watched on TV
