Friday Night Lights New Season To Take Place In Narnia, Texas

I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that there’s a promo out for the new season of Friday Night Lights. The bad news is that this is the promo:

(via Paul Scheer, who said it all with “more football, less fairy dust.”)

“New Season.” Yay! “New Network.” True! “New Wonders.” Um, new wonders?

Who is this promo supposed to appeal to? People who like well written sprawling dramas centered around high school football OK, but REALLY like Charmed? “Dear Friday Night Lights, mostly just be Charmed please.” I feel like the best thing about that show was its ability to make fans out of people who wouldn’t normally give a shit about football. Now we’re supposed to care about the triumphs and defeats of the Dillon Panthers AND muster enthusiasm for sub-par Tim Burton rip-off bullshit that wouldn’t even be cool in a Target commercial?

Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t stand this promo!
