Critic Reviews for Friday Night Lights Season 5

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7)

This is a show that's scored way more than it has faltered, and the opening episode suggests that streak will continue.

...a legitimately brilliant drama...

Nov 5, 2018 | Full Review…

What's most remarkable about Friday Night Lights (outside of the quality of the writing and acting on the actual program) is how the show survived.

Feb 6, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Even an episode that has all of the excitement of new beginnings still managed to tug at my heartstrings.

Feb 5, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

In the end, Friday Night Lights managed to create striking moments out of the small and intimate... Texas forever, indeed.

Feb 5, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

This season may be about saying goodbyes, but for now I'm just happy to have Friday Night Lights back.

I'm generally impressed with how well the final season wrapped up.

Feb 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Just watch the first two episodes and you will think one word ("Touchdown!") and remain emotionally riveted for the remaining 11 episodes of the final season.

Feb 5, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

I measure the quality of each episode based on my tear and cheer count, and this episode proved high in both. Ah, Dillon, Texas. How I have missed you.

Feb 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Man, that was one fine, emotional, intelligent, and satisfying ending.
