Critic Reviews for Friday Night Lights Season 4

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (15)

Friday Night Lights is rather brilliantly reinventing itself on the fly.

Jan 31, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Quirky, funny, smart, wonderful acting, surprise cameos by cherished actors (Steve Harris, The Practice), and a one-two punch by Chandler and Britton that is unbeatable. What's not to love?

With plenty of frankness and compassion, the Friday Night Lights writers continue to provide Friday night with its brightest light.

I'm disappointed that the finale (and the entire season, I think) passed without a single "clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." But coach Taylor's pep talk at practice was almost better.

FNL remains at the top of its game while also continuing to depict Texas as much more than a drawling board of cartoonish characters. That's basically a first on network television

There's definitely a joy to this series, no matter how dire things get for its characters.

"Friday Night Lights" is back, y'all, and if the Season Four opener is any indicator, it's as good as ever.

There aren't many high school shows - or shows, period - that get better in their fourth seasons.

Football is the framework for what remains a gritty, family drama with enormous heart.

Jan 31, 2014 | Full Review…

Once again, I marvel at the fact that I even still have the privilege of writing about [it]. This show has defied the odds to a spectacular extent, and the fact that it is now in Season 4 is just awesome. And as usual, this show is awesome as well.
