Friday Night Lights: The Son (2009)
What this show is all about (Spoilers)
Sometimes in a series you come across an episode that really displays what this show is all about. I couldn't find a better example than this one. Sometimes the acting has been questionable and the storyline takes a lapse. However when they come around with an episode like this, it really washes away the blemishes. Saracen (Gilford) continue to proves to be one of the better dynamic characters with all his internal struggles and his constant pressure to grow up quickly and face reality with a punch in the gut. He really brings some tear jerking moments with his performance while struggling with the loss of a father that he never knew. Instead of drawing up fictional over the top situations like most TV dramas do to reach the heart of viewers, Friday Night Lights draw upon the reality of the life of a small town and their struggles. When reflecting about the movie this series was based upon, the two are more than similar with the intensity, the reality, and the emotions each bring out of it's viewers to better understand what happens in a football town.
