  • I am totally hooked on this series. After a couple of very good episodes, this one manages to step up a notch in terms of real character development and in terms of setting the scene for each character's future challenges.

    The show just keeps getting better and better. All of the major characters have been extremely well written. The lives of Coach Taylor, Lyla, Tim, Matt and of course Jason himself have all had their lives turned upside down after Jason's freakish injury. In this episode as the realisation that things are not going to go back to the way they were sinks in, each of them is forced to look within and make some decisions as to how they are going to move forward.

    Lyla in particular is given some great development this episode as we see a glimpse of the real pain and repressed feelings behind her positive and hopeful exterior. It is also great to see Coach Taylor starting to gain the respect of his players and how far he is prepared to go to earn this.

    I can't wait for to watch the next episode.
