Friday Night Lights - Only Two Weeks Left

It looks like I'm heading to another tearful season finale. Friday Night Lights has only two episodes left! Since this program began five years ago, the setting, the subject, and the characters have enthralled me. The fast-paced action with short scenes that tell so much about the people involved is amazing.

This week, the brooding heroic character Tim, who stoically served jail time because his brother, the real culprit, has a wife and baby, is back. Because funding for schools has been cut, only one of the two high schools at Dillon will have a football program next season. Tami has run off to Philadelphia for a job interview and then an offer for an excellent job with a college there. Eric is headed to championship football tournament games. And on and on ...

How will it all end?

Can it?

Please not! There are too many characters developed in short blips in time. We want to keep on following them!

I love this series. I don't want it to end. Every character, maybe with the exception of Vince's father, would make a compelling story for a book I'd like to read.

For writers who need inspiration, take a look at one of the Friday Night Lights episodes on Direct TV channel 101. Any of those dramas has potential to inspire you to write your own book...

I have felt that way about some shows too.
