This NBC series is set in a small town that loves them some high school football. The cast includes lots of tortured teenagers and some very old folks in their thirties. It’s kind of like The O.C. except they have two black people and they shop for their clothes at Sears.
And this is the paralyzed guy:
And this is the coach’s daughter who goes out with this kid even though this kid’s father just got back from Iraq and can’t buy a job at a Used Car Lot:
Meanwhile this guy is a car salesman. His wife keeps him on a very short leash:
This is the car salesman’s daughter and she’s in love with the paralyzed guy. She has the best chin in Prime Time:
And this is the brainy black girl who plays a musical instrument and likes one of the players even though it totally gets on her nerves when he arm wrestles and talks about himself in the third person. Oh, right – there aren’t any photos available of that girl.
These two are the only survivors of a pandemic caused by a bacterium that results in vampirism:
This broody guy is in love with this girl whose mother is the kind of homemaker who allows her boyfriend to punch her to the linoleum floor and then lies in bed for days with leaky mascara. As you can see her daughter is determined not to follow this path:
And this is the requisite coach-motivates-player-while-standing-in-a-downpour scene:
Bossy doesn’t know who in creation this is but she thinks maybe Scut Farkus:

I’ve never watched the show, but it’s filmed across the street from me in the most economically depressed trailer court in the city of Austin. Most residents here don’t know where their next meal is coming from, the buildings have been condemned, it’s dark and crime-ridden and now we got these hollywood stars hanging around, walking across our yards, keeping us up nights to film this ridiculous series, it’s surreal.

LOL, that was more informative than 1000 Metcritic reviews.

I am never going to watch this show, nor am I going to watch any goddam inspirational sports movies where the girl/guy lives at the end.
Without Limits is a great movie about an amazing athelete named Steve Prefontaine.
