The fourth season of “Friday Night Lights” kicks off tonight on DirecTV’s 101 Network, and since today’s news is slower than old people humping, here’s a new extended version of the promo video that was floating around a week or two ago. It shows you characters looking serious, then a tree breaks apart, and the football field goes all 2012 on Coach Taylor and his wife.
“FNL” is definitely an excellent show — well-written, well-acted, nicely paced — but I checked out during Season 2, then Season 3 was on during Friday nights before I had DVR, and now I’m so far behind that I’d rather just watch the whole damn thing on DVD a year or two from now. But if you’re interested, there’s a nice preview of Season 4 at TV Squad, and if you’re not interested, there’s a lovely collection of the women of “FNL” at Co-Ed Magazine. You don’t need to know what happened last season to understand boobs. Like I always say, tits have no back story.
