Goofs

When Kennard is instructing Vince and Calvin how to steal the vehicle, after turning on the vehicle, he says the alternative is to "...hotbox the bitch." Hot boxing involves smoking inside of a closed area (such as a car) in order to increase the effectiveness of whatever is being smoked. The process he was actually referring to is hot wiring a car.

Just absolutely incredible
25 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode about Matt's father's death is absolutely the most carefully crafted and well acted episode of any TV show in the history of entertainment. It is just so amazing that this show is able to garner real emotions out of the people in the audience. Friday night lights has the ability to make anyone feel like they are literally face to face with the people in the small town and that the character's strife is their own.

IT MAKES ME INFURIATED.... ABSOLUTELY INFURIATED THAT THIS SHOW IS NOT CONSIDERED THE BEST SHOW ON TELEVISION and that it has to be aired on freaking Direct TV 101....

Forever, I will love this show more than any other on TV...
