3×13 Tomorrow Blues – Season 3 Finale! + interview with Whitney Hoy

We saw many things wrap up and many thing seem to have new beginnings. All in all, one of the best episodes we’ve seen so far. So join us in listening in on the podcast as Coach loses his job, East Dillon is reopened, Tyra gets into the University of Texas, and Lyla is going to Vandy. And it appears Tim is going to SASU while Matt is staying in Dillon with Grandma.

And we also have an interview w/ Whitney Hoy who plays Madison Balmer on Friday Night Lights. So join us on our longest podcast yet!

I am starting to get some resentment for Matt's Grandmother. She's a lovely lady in need of help, but we have a young man whose future plans are essentially derailed thanks to her. I don't want that to sound insensitive, but at the same time I wish this woman had a shred of feeling for (or interest in!) her grandson's future. So far, she just wants her 'damned slippers!'

Whew…I needed to vent ;-).

Wow, Chris. Heh heh. I don't see Grandma quite a villain right now. She made peace with going to the Retirement Village. She was going to be happy there with her knick knacks and all. But it was Matt's decision to go and get her. She didn't force it on him at all. Right?

Yes…I see where you're coming from. Grandma did seem to 'accept' the retirement home idea, so I will give her that. Still, I can't help feeling a bit sad for Matt. He's got a mother who is willing and able to help, to the extent that Grandma accepting of that offer. That she really isn't 'accepting' puts the onus squarely back on Matt's shoulders. So indirectly, Grandma is still responsible for Matt probably forgoing art school in Chicago. Anyway, one reason why we all love this show is because it spurs on discussions like this!

I love FNL and thanks for doing the podcast!

Has anyone ever talked about some of the problems with the show? I have coached high school ball in Texas for 10 years (if I make it to next year), and while this show is the most realistic and best-written sports show I've ever seen, I still have a problem with how the booster club is portrayed. It is illegal for booster clubs to do half of the things the Dillon booster club does, including recruiting, paying players, paying a coach's salary, hiring or firing coaches.

Continued…

I understand that recruiting does take place and so do illegal gifts, but no booster club has the power to fire a coach. They may apply pressure to administration, but they can't do anything official. And no head coach would visit a "recruit". The UIL (state athletic governing body) is very on top of what happens in these matters.

I know this is nit-picky, but my wife is tired of hearing me complain, so I had to dump this on someone else.

I love this show because we had our baby about the time Gracie was born, and I felt a lot of the same pressures and hardships that Coach Taylor did. The Taylors are my all-time favorite TV family.

Thanks for giving me another way to experience this show!
