I'm really loving Friday Night Lights, still. Despite the fact that the core cast has turned over multiple times, and Riggins is nowhere to be seen. THAT is the sign of a good show, my friends. But I am really annoyed at one thing: where is J.D. McCoy? East Dillon played the Dillon Panthers a few weeks ago. There was one assistant coach we remember. But no J.D. or his bad dad. And this is perplexing, because it was because of J.D. and his bad dad that Coach Taylor had to leave Dillon. So when I'm thinking they are playing one another, it should be a big deal. J.D. was a sophomore the first season Coach Taylor left and would only be a junior today. So....where?
And yes maybe I'm obsessing but here's the thing. This is a show that makes stuff like that matter. If they want to trot out Jason Street, and delight in his marriage and success -- and we remember. We do. Then you have to remember these other people too. So -- where are you J.D.???
P.S. -- It is entirely possible this has been explained and I missed that episode or watched it in a wine haze. If so, please fill me in, and I apologize for the above rant.
