Friday Night Lights: Random Thoughts Post #1

I am blown away by how this show has lovingly and meticulously developed Matty Saracen's character arc. From Season 1 to now, in Season 4, it all makes sense. He gave and he gave; he submerged his own needs time and again: for his grandmother's sake, his father's sake, his team's sake, his girlfriend's sake...

The look on his face when he opened the casket -- and during that final shot of his shoveling dirt over the casket.  I swear both gutted me.

Until finally, finally, he did something purely for himself: he left Dillon.

It was all building to this.

God, this kid and this show amaze me.
