  • One of the best character episodes of Friday Night Lights, which captures the best moments of life with such casual sincerity and insight, that I'm simply in awe.

    The two best scenes of this episode have to be Julie's talk with her father in the car, where she says that she knows that it's her father's dream to become a college football coach, but that she has dreams too, and they're coming true right here. An amazing job by the writing staff in capturing with such sincerity and emotion this honest moment between father and daughter. The second best episode was the reunited Panthers sharing their stories and drinking beers on the football field. When Matt confesses his insecurities, Street takes the chance to teach him a thing or two. The scene just captures the joy and comfort these guys have just being together, playing football, and supporting each other. Definitely impressed by Street's awesome coaching skills and the way he can be firm, direct, and instill confidence in Matt. The simply glory of enjoying a night out with the guys is summed up in the final scene, where Street and Riggins make a great Texas joke, while affirming their bond of friendship. These are the moments that tv and film are made for. To develop a drama that captures the best honest human moments in life, and FNL does it better than any other show I've seen yet. Friday Night Lights forever!
