    Too much overhyped, this series tells a cliche story, with not bad cast, but bad characters. It's just people saying how they're unlucky, but don't do anything to change it. At all, it would be a great series if the charatecrs and the plot change, because the dialogues are just too boring for me.

    The first 3 seasons were great, but during the 4th season the show started to loose some of its shine, and this season it is just straight up covered in rust. I'll watch the remainder of the episodes for the sake of closure.

    The first few episodes don't always click (strangely, the Tami story line doesn't feel real), but even when the storytelling hits a rough patch, there's enough raw emotion and drama--on and off the field--that hits the right note, saving the hour.

    Friday Night Lights used high school football as a vehicle to explore plainly and authentically the way in which people live, struggle and thrive in small towns. It just might be the finest scripted series on prime time.

    FNL's final season begins with one person staying put (Taylor Kitsch's Riggins is still in jail) and others moving on (Aimee Teegarden's Julie and Jesse Plemons' Landry are college-bound). Meanwhile, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) heads to the basketball court to find his next star player. [Oct 22/29 2010, p.107]
