Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

Quality writing counts! 'Friday Night Lights' last season begins tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC-TV

NBC-TV video:
FNL -The Final Season Begins

NBC-TV video: FNL Cast on Final Season

As you'll recall me mentioning previously, I watched all the Season 5 episodes of FNL on DirecTV already, so I can tell you with certainty that this is THE best season yet.

Review past LA Times Showtracker posts on FNL as necessary

Lots of great news nuggets below:

'Friday Night Lights': How a Low-Rated Drama Launched the Next A-List

Per the above, which comes with a photo gallery, I actually watch all the current TV shows starring the former FNL cast members.

I especially like Fox-TV's new show, The Chicago Code, with Matt Lauria and Jason Clarke as police detectives, Jennifer Beals as the Police Supt. (and Clarke's character's former partner),with
Delroy Lindo dazzling as usual as the ethically-challenged Chicago councilman, with both a do-good angel and corrupt devil perched on his shoulders.
They are pitch-perfect in their roles in a show that may be my favorite new 2011-12 show.

Last week's episode, "Wild Onions" was the best yet, and hopefully, Fox will show the wisdom to pick it up soon for a second season, since there are lot of compelling stories a cast this talented can tell about a city with a million stories.


A sneak for this coming Monday titled, "St. Valentine Day's Massacre"

Minka, we've missed you this past year!
We were relieved to have heard months ago that you're going to be spending so much time in Miami, both the real one and the TV version via
ABC's remake of Charlie's Angels.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
