Another failed attempt at a sexual assault scene
6 May 2008 | by (http://atheism.community.officelive.com/quotes.aspx) – See all my reviews

If I could ask the writers of Friday Night Lights one question, it would concern this episode, and in particular the sexual assault scene. Why couldn't they get it right?! There was nothing seriously wrong with the scene, but it does not bring with it the heavy emotions it should, either. Such ineffective scenes become unemotional and clichéd.

The only realistic scene having to do with rape I remember is in the last episode of Firefly, which showed the audience what rape really means to the victim.

It is time for TV and movie writers to visit a rape crisis center and speak with people who went through the traumatic experience, or people who work with such victims, before making another half-hearted attempt at a serious subject.
