News & Interviews for Friday Night Lights: Season 5
This is a show that's scored way more than it has faltered, and the opening episode suggests that streak will continue.
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.
Even an episode that has all of the excitement of new beginnings still managed to tug at my heartstrings.
In the end, Friday Night Lights managed to create striking moments out of the small and intimate... Texas forever, indeed.
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.
