another somewhat inconsistent season. still getting settled into the new characters and deciding how i feel about them. to me, watching these tv shows has become so much (perhaps too much) about the ending. unlike a film which i see as a story about usually just one series of events or a single time in a person’s life, a tv series has the ability to encompass an entire life, or at least a significant chunk of it.
the ending of the series makes sense (begins and ends with the coach’s career in dillon texas). it’s also a little bit too tidy. i can’t say i disliked it. it’s nice that things end well for everyone (except for luke, maybe), but it also leaves a little less impact as a result. there’s not much bittersweet – just sweet. overall a very good series that’s well-acted and written (some gaps aside). wish it had received more popular attention.Watched on TV
