I'm going to start using this thread instead of the Best of the 2000s thread.

I am only half way through season 2 so if you want to talk about stuff that happened after that, please preface your post with a spoiler warning for me. :)

I just finished Episode 210, which was about the Tornado/Rival School sharing campus/Landry confessing his love to Tyra/Buddy Garrity failing to get his wife back/Tim Riggins getting kicked out of the Taylor household for something he didn't do.

This was by far the best episode of season 2, and I was literally sad when the episode ended. Every other episode in season 2 has been just ok, but that one was great.

I have never watched this show but I know that one of the "homes" in the show is down the street from a friend of mine here in Austin. They lease the house from the owners for a couple of weeks and do all their shooting then let the people move back in when they are done. Pretty sweet deal from the sound of it.

MAY BE SPOILERS AHEAD




Reaper, I'm curious how you rank 4 with 1 & 3. I'm on episode 10 and I can't help but recommit to Season 4 being a tale of two halves.

On the one hand, you have an ambitious, very Wire-like expose on the rural, Southern, black-white relationship as well as the rich and poor model. In all of these story lines, the show succeeds.

On the other, you have a very melodramatic - dare I say "soapish" - half. These story lines include Becky (can't stand her character) and Glenn. These story lines take the ambitious nature of the other side to take on individual issues. Well, mainly Becky. But it fails to retain any authentic feel. It doesn't feel like anything but a stereotypical television political debate. And I can't help but be put off by it. That said, the Becky story line has a moment which I thought was very, very good. In fact, it was even subtly mentioned in a conversation between Coach and Mrs. Coach: Tim Riggins thinking Mrs. T would be the person to help Becky. In this way, it reminded me a lot of season 2 and the sprinkled moments therein.

Speaking of Glenn though, brings up another issue I have with the show. Actually, come to think of it, it's another parallel with Season 2 and the sexy nurse. The crux of my problem is that it seems within the show's usually authentic Dillon, the characters seem to get on each other at an alarming pace. A side effect of this is that there is almost zero platonic male-female relationships. Indeed, the only one I can think of is Landry and the girl in his band. Sadly, the reason seems quite evident. (Trying not to spoil.) Now, Julie and habitat hookup seem to have an adequate explanation even though I don't think it was necessary. I'm hoping I can take Mrs. T's line as evidence that the writers know what they're opening up.

All in all, Season 4, to me, seems to have all the good from the first and third seasons (especially the lead into and the episode of "The Son") yet afterwards seemed to implode under it's own ambition. Instead of telling about Dillon, they seem to want to make a point about elsewhere when they were already doing that quite well without making it obvious. It looks like it's going to continue down the Season 2 path. I'm hoping I'm wrong.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I finally finished season 4.


Spoilers beware.


I'm not exactly sure how I feel about Season 4. Last I reported, I was of two minds and I think I still am. While the last three episodes I watched seemed to return to Season 3 form - if very, very predictable - and that was a good thing. I would also like to point out that Season 4 brought us our second boy-girl platonic relationship: Becky and Riggins. So, there's that big plus.

Basically, I'm just a little troubled by the middle episodes. From the way they started the abortion line (which actually didn't turn out as bad as I thought it would) to Matt and Julie's relationship/catastrophe, which felt a bit One Tree Hill-ish but yet also very real given the small town. That is, I could see something like that happening as many characters have explored leaving their town and have had hardships doing so.

All in all I think my rankings go:

Season 1
Season 3


Season 4








Season 2

I'm hoping season 5 can take season 4 and one up it to send off FNL with a nice finish.

I re-watched season 4 with your concerns in mind. My conclusion: I don't agree with you at all (Or Sepinwall's wrap-up take talking about all these "flaws," which are actually things he would have preferred happen rather than what did).

I think that episodes 8 and 9 are just-okay, other than that I think season 4 is fantastic. I certainly didn't have any problems whatsoever with the abortion storyline. That is the best abortion storyline of any show ever. None of the relationship stuff felt "One Tree Hill-ish" like they did to you. Authenticity abounds throughout the season the way I see it.

The only real flaws in season 4 to me are small logical flaws, such as Dillon magically becoming a lot larger than previously thought; conjuring the East side out of thin air, or the East Dillon Lions getting what seemed like three bye weeks in the first seven weeks of the season.

We saw the same season of television but managed to see it very differently.

True, he did lean that way.

That is the best abortion storyline of any show ever. None of the relationship stuff felt "One Tree Hill-ish" like they did to you. Authenticity abounds throughout the season the way I see it.

Actually, the abortion story line grew on me. I thought it was over when I posted the first post. And I'm not sure why I included the abortion story line in the same sentence as One Tree Hill-ish. That said, I did find the Matt-Julie relationship to be a bit One Tree Hill-ish but I think it's more due to my investment in Matt (so close to him personality wise) and the relationship. That and I thought his sendoff was an after thought. Riggins got a much better one.

I did see some of the authenticity you did. Matt and Julie's relationship ending did seem very in line with a small town aura. As far as the show goes, I do think they've done a really good job keeping Dillon, Dillon. It has never wavered from that point. As much as I'm anti-religious and not a fan of Season 2, I did like Lyla's exploration in the Christian sect. I thought it added a really good dimension into Texas religion. More so than the Sunday church scenes at Smash's and the Taylor's churches.



Anyway, as for the abortion story line, I might actually agree that it was the best on television. I loved the political/school board side and almost wish they would have done more with it. My reasoning for not liking it probably still resides in Becky as an actor. I just didn't like her.

Did you find it absurd that the final episode was both very predictable and also a bit questionable (could the Lions actually win that game?)


We saw the same season of television but managed to see it very differently.

I think my first post came off as too negative. Indeed, in ranking them, I put it only a couple notches down. Season 2, we agree, is the worst. And, as I said, I liked the strong ending (there's your answer to the above question) in Season 4 and am amped for Season 5.


I would like to know why we haven't seen a single story line or player on the defensive side. It could add for some good sequences on the field and give a little balance.

I like everything that the show has ever done with faith. I don't have a single issue with Smash's church or the Taylor's church. I also like how positive faith is throught the series; it gives it a bigger impact in season 4 when people go apeshit over Becky's abortion and Tami's involvement with it. Christianity is set up in this way to be much like football in Dillon - positive in a lot of ways but so entrenched in its power that any attempts to rock the boat are met with savage resistance.

The final game of season 4... there is something to be said about the game in that I really didn't know if Landry would make that FG or not. Both outcomes were definitely within the realm of possibility in the show. Yes, I could see how the Lions could win; the Panthers have never, ever been a good defensive team. The game was probably no more or less realistic in outcome than the 17 or so last drive comebacks that the Panthers orchestrated over the first three seasons. I also like how, despite the Lions winning the game, it is a hollow victory in the face of nearly all our characters getting a raw deal in the dark final three episodes of the season. Perspective is always a nice thing.

A defensive presence would have been really nice starting all the way back in season one. Alas poor Santiago, we hardly knew ye.

Speaking of missed opportunities: Becky should have gone to the Planned Parenthood that Smash's mom works at (provided that the Smash family didn't all move to College Station too). Also, I was waiting for you (and maybe Buck will come though when he gets to season 4) to post something along the lines of "There the fuck is Wallace!" Also, how does this show get Michael B. Jordan (Wallace) and Larry Gilyard, Jr. (D'Angelo Barksdale) on a single episode of FNL and not have them interact one-on-one? We were robbed!

irishjayhawk
07-16-2010, 07:01 PM
I whole heartedly agree re 17 comeback victories and the perspective. I said before Landry kicked it that, he has to make it, with all he's been thru. Same went for everyone, really. In many ways, it was a kick for the town, even though the town is Panther heavy.

Smash's mother is one of the characters I really wish we got to see more of. I absolutely loved her. She knocked it out of the park every time.

And I should have mentioned Wallace and Barksdale. Yes, robbed. Though, I think I prefer Wallace as skinny kid rather than built football player.

On that note, I thought FNL's gang stuff was actually really well done for network TV.

Finally (reversed order), I think the comparison between Dillon football and Christianity is very apt. Ironically, I told my brother (who had already watched all of the show) that the religious stuff better be toned down in later seasons. He said it did. Boy was he wrong, and boy was it for the better. I do wish that the Christian part in season 2 had been someone other than Lyla but still good nonetheless. (I just loath Minka. Her voice. It's like a hot chipmunk.)

I left my house earlier tonight to go hangout at a friends, and I had one episode left in season two and I said I would watch it when I got home.

I get home and delete all the episodes off my thumb drive and load the last episode of season 2 onto it, and the first 7 or so from season 3. Well I started watching it, and it was the last episode I watched before I left. I didn't even realize that was the finale. Season 2 was mainly a joke, but I am about to start season 3, so hopefully it gets better.

Which is one of FNL's numerous logic holes. In the pilot, Riggins and Street (and Lyla) were all "Texas Forever" best friends ever around a campfire. But Street is actually two grades higher than Riggins and Lyla? That's how it plays out.

People's ages get fudged with a lot. Landry, as it plays out, will have been a freshman in season 1. But he was driving then, so...

1.) I will in the future for TV shows, that's for sure. I'm 100% sure that I was caught because NBC Universal shares the popular torrents themselves and traces whoever uploads from them.

2.) I definitely will if it comes to it. But I'm going to ignore the letter and take no action whatsoever. I think the worst that will happen is my ISP will deny me service after three warnings. But I'm moving in less than two weeks, so...

I watched a few more episodes of S1. It's getting a little more interesting. "Crossing The Line" is the strongest episode of the series so far. Finally, characters are acting like people. Other than Jason Street's performance - which was pretty much one note and all surface - I really liked this one. I'll keep jugging through.

As much as I love bold story lines, I think paralyzing a character in episode one and having him die at the end of season 2 would be a bit of a turn off for viewers. It tests my limits, regardless of how "realistic" it could be (ala Derrick Thomas).

As far as a wasted opportunity, I thought season 1 took advantage of it. It's just they ran out of steam for the next season.

So far S1 is handling the storyline fine. There's just so much more that could be explored. It seems like the writers are more interested in telling the love triangle story than anything else at this point. Which is fine, albeit obvious. It's starting to get more interesting. But, as you say, I imagine it'll run out of steam sooner than later.

Killing him off could be such a powerful story. And there are so many options at this point. Suicide? Medical complications? Murder? Another accident? All those have potential for some great tv. :)

It would be folly to stretch it out across an entire season. In fact, I'd down play it as much as possible. Maybe show some surprise reactions. Maybe Tim is relieved. I don't know. Doesn't matter anyway. I don't work on the show.

Coach Taylor and his wife are fantastic. They seemed like they were opporating on a different level, or existing in a different show most of the time. Saracen, Riggins and Julie turn in pretty solid performances week in and week out as well. I'm done with Street and Lyla. Get 'em out!

S2 is not off to a promising start. I was really rooting for this show after the second half of S1. You guys warned me, and thank you for that, so I'm not surprised. But I'm glad S2 is short because man... after only 2 episodes... I'm about ready to quit again. It's going to be hard to march through to S3.

And does Coach Taylor stay at TMU? Cuz that's annoying as piss.

So, S2 was mostly a waste of time. But the final three episodes went a long way to ease the pain. Really solid home stretch. It would have been interesting to see where the season went had it not ended prematurely. I'm guessing we would have seen Lyla's threesome with Jesus and Church Boy come to a Riggins flavored end. I'm also guessing the season finale would have been Smash's injury. But whatever. By not seeing those things, it created a fantastic S3 premiere. I loved watching S3 explode open and unfurl with unanswered questions and months passed. Very gripping. Great choice, team.

S3 is really fantastic. Out of the gate it's easily the best season of the show so far. I'm 9 episodes in, and loving it. I'm so glad that I stuck it out. Great show. It's hasn't been easy; FNL has had to earn it... but I applaud the show. It's always had moments, but S3 has seen those moments give way to 40 minutes stretches of what the show does best. They have found their groove.

I will say it's interesting to me that the strongest episodes so far in S3 have been the ones without Jason Street. Just saying. Now we have the promise of his departure to dirtier waters and smoggier skies. Will he leave? Finally? Will the dude finally just go the **** away? Only time will tell... but I hope so. Please. Go be a dad Jay. Say goodbye. We are way beyond "Texas forever." The dream is over.

There's so much more interesting ground to dig up. Everyone else on this show has more to offer this viewer than Jason Street. Even Lyla and her obvious flaws, her predictable, eternal ping-ponging, and whiney wrinkled chin have more to offer the fabric of the show than good 'ol Street. Now, the writers have given him a way to save a graceful goodbye and allow the audience to dream a better life for their fallen hero of yester-year. Don't screw this up, writing staff. Cut the chord. Pull the trigger. Let the man leave with dignity and maybe we'll see him in a few seasons in a fantastic guest spot - another homecoming game perhaps?

Seriously. They should have just killed him off. Ah well.

Show is so gooooood. Thanks for recommending it, guys. I'm glad I stuck around.

I totally understand that, Buck. I probably wouldn't have kept going if not for the converstations here. Also, I really liked the finale of S2. I thought it had a lot of humor and a lot of heart. But take as much time as you need to rinse the foul taste of S2 from your mouth.

S3 is yummy so far.

Okay, I am more than 2 episodes into season 3 apparently. I had already watched 5 of them, and I just finished the 6th (the one called "It's not easy being JD McCoy" or something like that). It was alright. Its still not as good as season 1. I would be surprised if I ever feel it gets back to feeling that good for me. I have an issue with the continuity errors (as far as certain kids being in certain grades).

Red Brooklyn
08-04-2010, 03:55 PM
There are a lot of odd continuity errors on the show. I don't know if I ever really noticed (or cared) about what grade everyone is in. Are there really blatant continuity errors in regards to that?

I would say S3 (especially the second half) is the best the show has been. I'd put the second have of S1 in a very close second.

I'm excited for S4. I think it's out on DVD in a couple weeks. I'm very interested to see where it goes.

Sorry you're not digging it as much, Buck. Sucks when the good ones go bad.

Buck's favorite character in LOST is Charlie. So what does he know? :p

There aren't so much continuity errors on the kids' grades as much as there are massive retcons. In the pilot we see Street and Riggins (and Lyla, really) have that "Texas Forever" pledge. You think they are the same age. But it turns out that Riggins and Lyla are sophomores during Street's senior year. Another one is with Landry in season 4: he didn't graduate with Sarecen. He is still in school during season 4 (along with Julie). Which means that Landry was a freshman when he was driving Sarecen around in season 1, which is an error coming out of a retcon (which you never want in a show).

Gotcha.

I actually don't have a problem with Riggins and Lyla being younger than Street. I supose that scene from the Pilot could be "misleading" but it doesn't bother me. I buy that they're younger. I buy that Street would still be good friends with both of them. I don't think I really even noticed it/thought about it as I was watching the show. So...

The Landry thing kinda bothers me. I'm glad you gave me a heads up. Hopefully, it won't bother me as I head into S4.

If it bothers you it will only bother your memory of older episodes. Season 4 is my favorite season of the show. The only fault is, again, with the way the show retcons things. Its like - all of a sudden - Dillon, TX has this predominantly black East side.

I've thought a lot about Charlie (LOST) being my favorite character and decided that he didn't have enough to do with the 2nd half of the show so I dropped him out of my top 5.

irishjayhawk
08-04-2010, 07:24 PM
Yeah, if you can get past the retcons, which I never really had a problem with since it gave me a chance to see the characters a bit more, Season 3 really picks up.

Since being able to rewatch bits and pieces since my sister got addicted too, I've thus revised my season ranking.

Season 1
Season 3
Season 4








Season 2

It's not much but I've considered 4 to be more in line with 3. Still, as Buck said, nothing touches 1.

And since we didn't hear anything about FNL past season 5 at the TCA briefing, I'm going to say that season 5 is the final season, despite rumors of a last minute deal.

Red Brooklyn
08-05-2010, 09:07 AM

NBC airs it after it makes its complete run on DirecTV. That exclusivity period is why DirecTV pays for the show; we wouldn't have had seasons 3-5 of FNL without DirecTV.

That said, my ass is guaranteed to be downloading the episodes as they air. Just don't torrent them -- I got busted by NBC/Universal for torrenting season 4. They are watching those torrents.

Oh, completely agree. There were moments in the final couple episodes that were fairly unrealistic and sort of uncharacteristic of show. Landry's kick being one of them. But, yeah, I ultimately just needed the Lions to win. So I didn't really care. And, like you said, it's the sort of show where you just can't be certain whether or not he makes it.

He was a very simpathetic character. He's a douchebag in S4. But you totally by it! Of course he is! All of his success, coupled with his age and his father's influence, what else could he be.

My problem with it is that it just feels so separate from the rest of the show right now. I don't think that her behavior is inconsistent with the character, though.

From a review, "One thing I've been thinking about is Friday Night Lights' distinctive brand of male sentimentality. This show seems singularly designed to make men cry."

Aint that the truth. Even if it doesn't... it'll damned sure make ya get a little misty.

I watched several episodes of the first season and wasn't really impressed. It was too much like the movie for me to get into it.. I'll probably come back to it at a later date though. See what it is you guys are fapping to..

I didn't really get into the show until episode 7. I thought it was okay. Kinda interesting, but mostly obvious and stereotypical and overly expository. That changes at episode 7. From that point on the rest of season one is gold. Season Two is pretty bad. I stronly recommend not even really watching it.

Season Three is one of the best seasons of television I can remember, and it pretty much acts like Season Two didn't happen. Any really imporant pieces of info you need are crammed into the first episode as a bridge.

Season Four is also amazing. Season Five is probably just a notch below S3 & S4 overall. But the finale is wonderful.

Great show.

I am really going to miss this show. It was one of my favorites on TV. Loved the cast and how each character showed development. I would have loved to play for a guy like Coach Taylor.

Clear Eyes, full hearts, can't lose.

I just got Netflix back so I've been catching up on this.

I just started season 4 and I think I found Wallace...Also Nnamdi Assomougha.

Is this show 4 seasons long or 5?

Me too. I just started watching from season 1 again. I don't repeat shit like this very often. But it was a great show.

Just finished. It was awesome.

I don't really ever cry, but that finale got me close.
