I have been a huge fan of Friday Night Lights. From the first time I watched the pilot episode and was amazed by what I had just stumbled upon up to the final moment when Coach and Mrs. Coach walked off the football field in Philadelphia and the lights turned off for the last time.
Every time I’ve written about Friday Night Lights , I’ve noted the many aspects of the show that I believed resonated with so many viewers including myself; the sincerity, the realism, the humility and maybe most importantly, the universality of the show’s characters, stories and themes.
What a night! A huge congratulations to Kyle Chandler and Jason Katims for their Emmy wins tonight. So well deserved and such a long time coming. Also congrats to Connie Britton and Friday Night Lights itself for their long deserved nominations and should-be wins.
Here’s a wonderful fan-made trailer of the entire series that sums up the series very nicely:
The final episode of what will certainly be one of the very best television programs ever airs tonight on DirecTV’s The 101 Network. While the final season begins its broadcast run on NBC, Friday, April 15th, the tribute articles and retrospectives are already popping up. So why not give those tear ducts some needed exercise before the floodgates open tonight by reading some of the wonderful articles around the internets.
