'Friday Night Lights' Season 5 Premiere Review & Discussion

Coach Taylor at East Dillon High

Tonight, fans of the critically acclaimed series Friday Nights Lights must begin to say their goodbyes to Coach Taylor, Tami, Julie, Matt, Landry, East Dillon High and the many others characters that we've come to know over the years. Tonight’s season 5 premiere marks the beginning of the end. Fortunately, there are still thirteen episodes of these terrific characters and wonderful, engaging storylines to take in before this series officially comes to an end.

At the end of season 4, chaos ensued: Tami set herself up as a prospective counselor at East Dillon High, Matt & Julie realize that they now live in two different worlds and Tim Riggins went to prison, in order to cover for his brother. If anything, season 5 certainly has enough jumping off points to being their final journey. Let’s just hope that they’re able to continue with the momentum that they started so many years ago.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.
