Last night, the last episode of Friday Night Lights aired on Direct TV Channel 101. Even without commercials, the show lasted almost 70 minutes. Since NBC will present this last season of the show later this year, I won't say anything to give away what happens, but the last program was much more satisfying than the final episode of The Medium.
Apparently, Friday Night Lights did not have a wide audience which is sad. The quality of this production--writing, acting, camera work, etc. has been outstanding. Last night's program brought back many of the characters from previous years. That was done by having it start out during the Christmas season when so many folks come home for the holidays. Much of what happened was not unexpected, but the characters interacted in ways to which all of us can relate.
The Taylors--Eric and Tami are a couple that despite their disagreements and bumps in the road always worked things out. They showed a love for each other and for their family that most of us want to have in real life. Perhaps since Friday Night Lights is no more, a new show could be developed that follows the Taylors.
Because the show was about football and a small town in Texas and most of all about life, no matter what happens in the future, I believe Friday Night Lights will become a classic television drama.
