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.

January 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.
