It’s Friday! Which means that the only thing I can think about is getting home in time to watch the mouth-watering men of “Friday Night Lights.” It’s hard for me to choose which dude is more savory. Every week I have a different favorite. And did I mention how much I love all the new characters this season? Don’t think I didn’t notice little Luke Cafferty shirtless last week, and Vince Howard’s not looking too shabby either. Sigh, so many to choose from. After the jump, my current picks for whom I would shun, shag, or marry … at least for this week. Keep reading »
I just realized that it’s been more than two months since I’ve gone to see a movie. Why? Because why pay $10+ to sit in a freezing theater when I can park it on the couch and watch all the amazingness that is my television. This week, like all weeks this month, I am super pumped for the final episodes of “Lost.” But there’s some other great stuff going down, too, like the season finale of “America’s Next Top Model,” fresh episodes of “Friday Night Lights” (finally!), and a “Simpsons”-themed dose of “Top Chef Masters.” After the jump, check out previews.

If you are a devoted fan of “Friday Night Lights” like I am, you probably have a Pavlovian response—either drooling or sweating—when you hear the name Taylor Kitsch, aka Tim Riggins. I’m sorry, but it just shouldn’t be legal for a dude to be that hot. Couple his inherent hotness with the fact that he plays a bad boy football player with a heart of gold and you’ve got the makings of a category five libidinal hurricane. All this time I’ve been thinking I was kind of pervy for thinking a high school boy was so hot. But as it turns out, he is 29! That’s 11 years more than legal. Even though I’m sad that he’s graduating from “FNL” (this is his last season), we haven’t seen the last of his six-pack. He has a few films in the works, but there’s one that sounds like a hit. Word is that Taylor just landed a role as a “wildly spirited” Naval commander in the film adaption of our favorite childhood board game, Battleship. His character, Alex Hopper, will battle the open seas and save the world when aliens invade earth. I hope by “wildly spirited” they mean wet and naked. [NY Post] Keep reading »
Ever since that opening shot four years ago of mega-hot Tim Riggins passed out on his couch in his football uniform, I have been thoroughly and hopelessly addicted to “Friday Night Lights
.” So I am close to despondent that, even though season four of the show premieres tonight on DirecTV at 9 p.m., I won’t be able to watch. See, I—like most television hounds—have standard cable, not DirecTV’s satellite service. Those of us who are DirecTV-less will have to wait until freaking January to see these episodes. Which is why I’m harnessing the power of the internet to ask—is there anyone out there who lives in New York City, has DirecTV, and is fired up to see what’s going down in Dillon, Texas, this year? I’ll bring mac and cheese and okra, and we can call it a tailgate party.
But that’s not why I’m writing. I’m writing because, assuming you’re anywhere near as obsessive about this show as I am, you’ll want some insider info on the new season. Keep reading »
