Did You Know?


At the end of the scene where Jess tells Coach Eric Taylor she will be moving to Dallas, the camera pans from Eric to a bobblehead on his desk. This pan is nearly identical to the intro of The Office, where the camera pans from character Michael Scott to a trophy on his desk, and could be a possible homage to the fellow NBC series.

You Will Be Missed
29 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know no one reviews singular episodes, but I'd like to take a moment to step out of the norm for this extraordinary show. Plan and simple, this finale episode sums up everything this show is about; family, friends, and football. From the Taylors taking a new step in their life, to the Riggins becoming mature men, this episode beautifully displays how things will progress in the future. As well as the local football teams taking an unforeseen twist that rock Dillon's die hard fans. All in all, this one's a tear jerker to every viewer. "Friday Night Lights" has been a great ride, and I'm glad I've been here to enjoy it. Texas forever, everybody.
