Buffy The Vampire SlayerThis year’s Salon Buffy award goes to Friday Night Lights
Friday 14 September 2007, by Webmaster
And the Buffy goes to ...
Our fourth annual award to the most underappreciated show in all of TV land.
Editor’s note: This is the fourth year we’ve awarded the Buffy, named after a certain vampire thriller. The first award went to "The Wire," the second to "Veronica Mars," and last year we chose "Battlestar Galactica."
This year’s Buffy, an annual token of our deep and abiding love for a relatively underappreciated TV show, goes to ... "Friday Night Lights"!
You’d think that if you trotted out the most original depiction of the modern American family since Tony and Carmela bickered over an open refrigerator, you’d reel in countless viewers and a big sack full of Emmys to boot. Not so for "Friday Night Lights." Despite developing into the most dynamic and heart-rending drama on the small screen and garnering glowing praise from swooning critics and passionate fans alike, this prime-time gem still hasn’t attracted the ratings or the little golden statues that it so rightfully deserves.
