  • This show is actually improving:)

    This show is actually improving:) For me I see a lot of improvement than the past episodes, it is starting to have a deep and intimate sense of this show. I feel sorry for Jason that he feels that way well if I was in the story I would say don't give up. And that voodoo guy no offense kinda creeped me out well I guess that guy is a good actor:)moreless
  • In the biggest game of the season, Coach Taylor must decide between Matt and Ray for the starting quarterback spot. Tim and Lyla's relationship continues, and Jason shows soem hope.

    This episode was suprisingly above average, and was overall a good episode, especially considering this was the week it was shown in place of "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip". Some of the parts of the show do seem somewhat blank, but at least they are progressing the relationship between Matt and Coach Taylor's daughter. Also, the addition of Ray Vodoo was a good addition, and hopefully that storyline will continue to be as interesting as it was. While Jason's storyline doesn't seem all that entertaining at times, he is one of the shows main characters and I'm glad they keep showing his struggle against himself. Overall, some parts of this episode were average, and some parts were above average.moreless
  • Def one of the best shows on TV! I haven't had emotions like this since The OC first season.

    I just LOVE the premise of this show. Matt Saracen is what keeps me watching. His awkward manner, his nervous tendancies, his aspirations to be great. It just reminds me of myself. That's why I think I love the show so much. It just feels very real. Even the games your sitting there routing Saracen and the team on and booing Voodoo!

    Well this time around, doubt encircles the town as to who is going to start. A loss in this game is not going to be allowed. Its either win or have the town destroy the Coaches. In comes Voodoo. A cocky knowitall that thinks hes the whole team, ala Terrell Owens. He protests everything that Coach Taylor wants and hates everything about the town.

    But anyone really care about the Tyra storyline?? That was probably the biggest waste of time in the show so far. I don't really care about her or anything surrounding her.

    Watching the actual game was the best part of the show. It's a great formula that shows underdog quarterback coming into his position. Voodoo gets shown as a loose cannon that cant truely lead a team if the team doesnt want him as a leader.

    I love this show and cant WAIT for the next episode althought it would be heartbreaking if that win gets taken away because of stupid Voodoo.moreless

  • Great show and hopefully will get some ratings!

    I would hate for this show to get cancelled as

    This is a good family drama and that it is

    Really with good acting and great writing as when the star

    QB goes down, that is Jason, Coach Taylor is faced with

    A dilimea to either go with Matt or Ray as Jason

    Has self confidence to rehab and get on the road to Recovery. As the relationship between Tim & Lyla grows stronger!

    • Smash Williams: Hey! Hey! Hey! It's going down tonight! The Panthers ain't even began to fight! Look, they wanna trash our locker room, we fittin' to hit them with a sonic boom! The Panthers gonna have the last laugh, 'cause we breakin' our foot up in they…

    • Coach Taylor: I say if we do our best we will have success. And that we own the fourth quarter. (holds up four fingers in the air) The fourth quarter is ours. The fourth quarter is ours

    • Lyla: Tim, just don't do this okay?
      Tim: Do what?
      Lyla: Pretend that you're interested in my school work. It's obvious that you're not, that you're just trying to--
      Tim: Have a conversation, Lyla? Yeah, I thought we may want to try and do that sometime.
      Lyla: Okay. What do you want to talk about Tim? The fact that you're sleeping with your paralyzed best friend's girlfriend. Is that what you want to talk about, Tim? No, I don't think we're going to be doing a lot of talking.

    • Coach Mac: You think I want your job, right? Well, you're damn right I do. 'Cause the way I see it you're sitting in my chair. But I'll never do anything to hurt these kids. I want to win just like you do. These are my boys too. So you pull it together. Got me?

    • Julie: So, do you think you're gonna start?
      Matt: Uh..I don't know. Well, that's the coach's decision. You know, whatever he decides, I'm there for. But I've been working hard so I'm ready, I feel good about it. I just---you know whatever he feels is best for the team, that's—that's what I'm ready to do, so…

I'm here to get noticed, get recruited and get my ass to LSU. And you? You just trying to scrape by. Trying to win some games, keep your job. You and me are an arranged marriage. Nothing more. Now you seen what I can do. You wanna start Saracen you go right ahead.

    • Coach Taylor: You know what I heard once? I heard that a daughter is supposed to be a comfort and a blessing to her father.
      Julie Taylor: Texas isn't even a state. Technically it's a Republic. It be nice to live somewhere that's actually a part of this planet.
