Counting down the best TV in 2010
6. Drama Classics (TIE): "In Treatment" (HBO) and "Friday Night Lights" (DirecTV, NBC)
"Friday Night Lights" (left), meanwhile, continued to tell stories of ordinary small-town life in an extraordinary way — on DirecTV in the fall, and then NBC in the spring. Like "In Treatment," it dives into the particulars of its characters, and shows us the world from their points of view.
