Amy’s been after me for quite some time to feature Friday Night Lights as a Friday Favorite … so here it is!
In Dillon, TX, football is more than a favorite pastime. It’s a way of life. And coach Eric Taylor is charged with leading the Dillon Panthers to win–every game.
But the truth is that this show isn’t about football. It’s really about the people who make up this football town. It’s about the grown men who still count their high school championship rings as the most important thing in their lives. It’s about the boys trying to become men, worthy of respect. It’s about the girls who want more than their mothers’ lives in Dillon. It’s about husbands and wives loving each other in the toughest times.
It’s a story of heart and hope and learning to love and forgive each other in all our faults.
We’re now in the third season (seasons 1 and 2 are available on dvd) of this amazing show, and it just keeps getting better. Check out the clip below–which is the final minutes of the pilot episode, a beautiful, moving prayer by coach Taylor–and be sure to watch Friday nights on NBC.
Clear eyes, full hearts, CAN’T LOSE!
