Friday Night Lights - Season 5 (Video)
I wanted to shout about it from the rooftops.
Instead, I decided to celebrate the show by having fans (eg authors, bloggers) write about why they loved the show. I was exceedingly lucky as people agreed to share their thoughts. People I never dreamed would have the time - Meg Cabot, Sarah Dessen, etc As a result more people gave the show a chance. And love grew. We love well constructed reflections of teen life in the YA blogdom and that is FNL.

On October 27th (Direct TV) the final season of my beloved show begins. That's only thirteen more episodes of Coach and Mrs Taylor, the ragtag East Dillon Lions and the awesomeness that is Julie Taylor. While there is always talk about Riggins and Saracen - my favourites are the Taylor family. I love them. They are real as far as I am concerned.
If you have time, or you haven't met the Taylor family...read the posts and get enthused. You will thank me. You will post about this show and how much you love Landry's band, Matt's kindness towards his grandmother and how much you want to wash Riggins' hair. You will fall in love.
Remember - it is not all about football. It's about real people with real problems.
And now, here's the season 5 promo -
Here's the interview that Kyle Chandler (Coach Eric Taylor) had with Diablo Cody which depicts his love of the show, the actors, Connie Britton and how darned charming he can be. I watch this repeatedly.
However please be aware that there is inappropriate language used and you might not find this to your taste.
