Hello Snarkateers! It's Korianne here from Korianne Speaks! I am a FNL newbie but that does in no way mean I love it less than the hardcore fans! I started watching FNL on a dare from Jordyn earlier this year. She sent me Season 1 on DVD and I gobbled it up. That's sort of an odd thing for me. I have a hard time watching TV shows usually. Don't get me wrong, I like my TV, but I just can't do schedules. So I had seen previews of FNL a few years back but never thought I would watch it much less like it.
In one weekend I would go from casual watcher to HARDCORE FNL ADDICT. I watched the entire first season in 1 sitting. I only got up to grab food and go to the bathroom. Yeah, that's right in the span of 2 days I did not shower. What I do for the love of a TV show. But I couldn't tear my eyes away! I started out watching and texting poor Jordyn my thoughts. Most of them were along the lines of, "Riggins is an idiot." "Tyra is a bitch." "I heart Matt." "I don't care if Matt is 'yours', I now claim him." "OMG Street! I hope he's ok." "Lyla, give it up. You are just annoying.": "lol Landry lol." While I loved the first episodes I just needed to dissect them, decide who to root for, and figure out this strange game Americans call football. Wait... I'm American... I don't understand football... My dad used to be a coach, I still don't get it. OH THE HORROR!
But about half way through season 1 I put down all the guardrails and let my heart sink deep into the characters. Their emotions were my emotions. I wanted to go to see Tami Taylor at the councilors office for my problems. I saw past the fronts the characters had put up. Riggins wasn't just the drunk on the football team. Tyra wasn't just a slut. Lyla wasn't just a spoiled little girl. Julie wasn't such a goody goody. They were my friends. I was going to defend them to the end. Even when I was mad at their decisions I was still rooting for them to end up on top.
I had Jordyn rush ship Season 2 to me. A few weeks later I did the same ritual as I had for Season 1. Even dragging Kendall, my sister, in to watch a few episodes. It was lovely as expected. I rushed to the computer when Jordyn told me Season 3 was on NBC.com for the next week only to be disappointed when it had already been taken down. I did find a site that lets me watch Season 3 but the buffering is killer so I am working through that season rather slowly. But here's a little update on my rooting. I am rooting for Landry & Tyra big time. Matt & Julie could go either way but I still want to see both of them happy regardless. I'm sort of over my Matt crush but occasionally it creeps back up. For some reason I can't decide if I like Riggins & Lyla or not. Perhaps it's because I want Riggins for myself! *insert shocked face* Yeah, I want the man I called an idiot. I ALWAYS FALL FOR THE BAD BOY DAMMIT! I think Siobhan Vivian sums up my feelings when she says, "I dream of cheating on my boyfriend Matt Saracen with Riggins. *bites finger* I'm so bad!" But I am glad Lyla & Jason didn't end up together. Oh, and I am rooting on Baby Grace to end up with Baby Noah, because that would be stinkin' cute.
Alrighty boys and girls I am off to go fantasize about Riggins kissing me... I mean I'm off to class.
P.S. my phone just rang. Yeah, it's the FNL theme song. Be jealous.
