Things Friday Night Lights and Nashville (the Show) Have in Common

In honor of my obsessive Nashville marathon
  1. Connie Britton
    And her hair
  2. Hot rugged talented bad boys who get in their own way
    Tim Riggins is basically the young football version of Deacon amirite?
  3. Goody-two-shoeses we don't care about
    Ahem, Scarlett and Lyla, cough
  4. Similar names
    Rayna, Layla, Lyla, Tyra, Layna. Also, two characters named Luke.
  5. Both make very conservative American pastimes seem charming and heartfelt, and if not liberal, then neutral
    Let's try to forget Odessa in Friday Night Lights the book, which sounded horrifyingly racist. Let's pretend country stars' undying love for the Confederate flag doesn't exist.
