Rated 5 out of 5 by rbjj Quality television at its best!
This is simply one of the finest shows ever created. Don't be fooled into thinking this is just a show about football. It isn't. My wife hates football but she absolutely fell in love with this show. You'll probably never see a more accurate portoray of life in small-town America on network television than this. Each of the characters are complex, deeply flawed, but ultimately likeable individuals. You probably know people like this in real life...that's how believable this show is. You'll find yourself sucked into each of their lives like you are a close family friend. You will cheer for their triumphs and you will cring and weep for them when their lives go astray, usually as a result of their own foolish actions. Each character is on some sort of personal journey to be better people, though they often fall short due to their own humanity. The show is really about the rise and fall and redemption of everyday people and how we're not all that different from each other even though we may be born on different sides of the spectrum.
Shows of this quality are a rarity today. Unfortunately, due to low ratings there is a good possibility it will not survive a second season. Do yourself a favor and support this show by purchasing the 1st Season DVD and watching it on television every week. Remember, you do not need to like football to love this show. This is not a show about football. It is a show about life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TriciaT Didn't expect it to be this good!
Although I enjoyed the movie, I had a preconceived notion that this was a simplistic white-bread, goody-goody series about gorgeous teenagers and their silly teenage problems. And football. I only bought this because some of my friends raved about the show. Boy, am I glad I was wrong! This is a great program. Yes, it's mainly about teenagers and their problems and football, but you really come to CARE about these characters and can't wait to see what happens next. Liking football is a plus but certainly not necessary. During the football scenes, you'll actually feel the excitement and anxiety as if you were there. In fact, with most of the scenes, it's as if you're watching real life situations unfold before you. Kind of hard to explain...
The writing and acting are excellent -- absolutely top-notch. I don't watch much television so I'm pretty picky about what I spend my time on. For network tv, this is as good as it gets. It should be winning Emmys left and right.
NOTE: If the first episode doesn't grab you, please give it a chance. I liked it, but wasn't terribly impressed until about the 3rd episode. Then it hit me -- I was hooked!
Rated 5 out of 5 The One Show I watch with my Teenager
This tv series is fantastic. It is the one show that my teenaged son and I watched together every week. The first season the show came out he was a senior in highschool, and we watched it every week together. There is enough football in it to keep him interested, but there are lots of other themes going on, and it really opens up discussions on life and it's intricacies.
Now that he is away at college, we are not watching season two, but when he comes home on Christmas break we will be watching every episode online.
How many tv shows are out there that span the generations? I'm buying the DVD for a Christmas present for him.
Rated 5 out of 5 by internetshopper88 The best show EVER!
Friday Night Lights was worth every penny I spent for it. It was a bargain at only $20. Being a fan of the show from the beginning, I would have paid $70 for the dvd. This show isn't just about football it's about family, community, and life in small town America. This is a show everyone should take the time to watch.
