Friday Night Lights Recap: Talkin’ ‘Bout the Car Wash

Deep breaths, FNL fans. The day you’ve been dreading has arrived. What’s that, you say — is Landry on another killing spree? Has Santiago been named QB1? Has Ferret Guy returned?! No, none of these ridiculous things has happened.

Horrible news? Sure. But maybe good timing, because this week’s strong episode proves you don’t need Taylor’s abs acting to make Friday Night Lights sing.

Read the rest of the recap, originally published when DirecTV aired the episode in January, here.
