Overview

Friday Night Lights - Season 1

The critically acclaimed Nielsen underdog Friday Night Lights hits the ground running in this 14-episode first-season set. An extended fictionalization of the world introduced in H. G. Bissinger's celebrated nonfiction bestseller, later made into a feature film directed by Peter Berg, the series returns to the small town of Dillon, Texas, where everyone comes together on Friday nights to see the Dillon High Panthers play. But life is not a game, and the charismatic players, new coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler), and the passionate fans find that their biggest challenges and obstacles come off the field in the compelling day-to-day dramas of their tight-knit community. Produced by Berg along with Brian Grazer, the ensemble drama arrives on DVD with deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes featurette.

It is a unique situation where a show that is truly one of the best on the air, and one of the most overlooked continues to stay on the network schedule. Thank you to the executives at Direct-TV who rescued it from certain cancellation. The show proves that you don't have to be a cop or a lawyer - you simply have to be alive - to find the drama and the comedy that makes life so intriguing.

I never watched this series when it aired on TV because I was immediately put off by the "high school football team does stuff in a small Texas town." Yawn. I don't care for sports. Then I watched it, and I was pleasantly surprised. Of course there's football, but you really forget about that when you're watching the characters. You get emotionally involved with everyone's lives, to say the least. The relationship between the Taylor family is one of the most honest on TV. Connie Britton really should have been nominated for an Emmy. She's wonderful.

This show is amazing. How can there be no reviews for it? It's the best show nobody is watching. It doesn't rely on convoluted plot lines or twists and turns (although Heroes and Lost have their place in my TV heart). It's just real, and the chemistry between the characters is breathtaking, especially between Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton. Please watch this show!

This is a great show that I heard about through word of mouth. I confess that I know nothing about football, but it doesn't matter. The show is about the families, relationships, and conflicts around the sport. The acting is believable and the writing top notch; sometimes you feel as if you're watching a documentary. I bought season 1 about a week ago and I'm almost done watching it. That's how good it is. You owe it to yourself to watch the show, if you like genuinely good tv.

This show really is amazingly good. I don't even like football, but I love the show. I think people hate being told it's the best show that they aren't watching. All I can say is, give it a chance. Watch the pilot online, and see if you're hooked. Then buy the whole season 1 and catch up.

A friend of mine let me borrow the first season. I was hooked. Loved the whole story line, very original, and realistic. I immidiately went and purchased seasons 2 & 3!

This show is stuffed with plenty of witty dialog and compelling drama, and realistically portrays a town where winning really is everything. When the star QB is asked by a younger player if he thinks God loves football, he replies as though it were obvious: "I think everybody loves football." It has something for everyone. I can't believe more people don't watch it!

For some reason, this show is only watched by effete, upper class, tea drinkers like myself, who is ironic, since its a sincere celebration of community, family, and the redemptive power of team sports, set in the most sympathetic depiction of the south this southerner has ever seen. You may think "I don't like football, therefore I won't like this show." You would be wrong.
