2 things:

a) American Gladiators is awesome… and by awesome, i mean ridiculously fun/ny when you watch with 4 or more people and consume plenty of alcohol.

Tears were streaming down my face from laughing so hard when I watched the premiere and Koya essentially passed out as she crossed the line of the eliminator. You can’t script unintentional comedy like that.

Appendix i for point A) – American Gladiators is totally lame and boring if you watch it by yourself while completely sober.

B) I watched season 1 of Friday Night Lights over Christmas break and can’t praise it enough. I’m 3 episodes into the second season (via, and am kinda over it. I’m gonna stick with it, but it’s starting to make me wonder if it’ll be able to keep my attention much longer.

FNL comes back around, though I never thought it went that far off course (I’m assuming you are referring to the plot point from the S2 premiere). The last two episodes have been two of the finer episodes of the entire series, though.
