In Case You Missed It: Week In Review

Did you enjoy your short week? We sure did! The heat stayed around but our whining ceased (well, mostly). You may have missed Knox Road this week due to, oh I dunno, taking too many xanax to deal with Bron Bron’s DECISION. Or you were arguing about how Friday Night Lights didn’t get enough Emmy nominations and So You Think You Can Dance was totally snubbed — but it’s okay because Mad Men is everywhere. OR you’ve been working on a true life “get out of jail” card for Lindsay Lohan. Too much pop culture in one paragraph? NEVER.

  • Aw, thanks for the love! :)

    Friday Night Lights always gets robbed. The second half of this season has been very disappointing, but still better than anything else on tv and every other season was shockingly brilliant.

    No problem Vic! Your site sets an example for any aspiring music blogger.

    I love everything Friday Night Lights, so this whole season still did it for me. I’m glad “The Son” got an emmy nom for best writing, though. And agreed re: shockingly brilliant.
