Storyline

In the small town of Dillon, Texas, one night matters: Friday Night. Eric Taylor has recently been hired as the head football coach for the Dillon High School Panthers, the town's pride and joy. Friday Night Lights displays the stress that the town gives the high school players to win, and the hope that the team gives to a small town, and how a team has its low points, its high points, and how they come together as a team on their way to victory. Written by Zac Abrams

Bring back FNL!
29 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

All these people saying the camera was too shaky? I didn't even notice. Listen, it's not our fault if you can't concentrate on something for longer than ten seconds.

Most of the people who have given this poor ratings are just people who were expecting this to be a live NFL game or something. Don't listen to them. Football is an important part of the show, but it's secondary to the characters, who are deeply explored and easily related to.

Do yourself a favour and watch this from the very first season until the last. You won't regret it. Oh, and NBC, please bring this show back. One of the few shows I've ever really loved.
