Show Summary

In the small town of Dillon, Texas, football is everything. The team to beat is the Panthers, who are coached by newbie Eric Taylor. Coming back after winning the State Championship, the Panthers will need all the help they can get once the next football season arrives, amidst all the personal dramas and injuries. This series is based on the book and movie Friday Night Lights. Season two of Friday Night Lights was cut from twenty two to just fifteen completed episodes because of the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. In order to save the show and produce a new season, DirecTV stepped up and will air new episodes of season three on DirecTV's "The 101" during the fall, and then they will premiere during the winter on NBC. Both seasons can be found on DVD, as well as repeats on Bravo.

    Definitely one of my favorite shows ! I enjoyed this show very much and feel like they hit it right on the nail with making a show about football and the drama associated with it for a team with high expectations. The only thing that I wish is that my boy Jason Street played and maybe got hurt like mid-season or something as I really wanted to see how good he was. But great show, due to cuts I think the seasons got reduced to only being 13 episodes, but if they were all 20+ like the 1st season then who knows just how much better it could have been. But they made it work !!!moreless

    I loved the show and thought it was really great until the characters started to change. I didn't really like the ending . I expected there to be more and not how it ended. I feel like every characters story showed have been shown and how they accomplished everything they wanted. I believe that there should have been a greater ending to that show.

    Absolutely fantastic,

    Love all the characters, The Riggins Brothers, and Especially the Head Coach and his wife. Not a huge football fan.

    But I love this show.

    I would recommend to all

    Part football and another part awesome. Excellent shows from beginning to end. Hope the rumors are true that a movie is in the works.

    Watch Amy Schumer and Josh Charles Perfectly Spoof Friday Night Lights (VIDEO)

    Coach Thompson's radical new idea doesn't sit well with his players in this spot-on parody.
