I bought this in the midst of my grieving after the show's final episode and season. I thought it'd allow me to hold on just a bit longer to the characters who felt more like intimate friends. Their passing and the show's end has felt anything but fictional. I never imagined a TV show could be sacred, but this is, offering up a kind of scripture to clear our eyes and fill our hearts. The essays are fun, insightful and, like the show, often deeply heartfelt. You can't lose.

I received the paperback version as a review copy. I am a HUGE fan of the TV show, so obviously, I'm already pre-disposed to loving anything related to FNL.

This book provided some interesting inside looks and I enjoyed browsing through it. As an avid fan though, I didn't find too much that was 'new' to me--but like I said, I have been a fan since day one, and not much slipped past me on the internet regarding the show.

One thing I would have liked was more about Eric and Tami Taylor. I get that Taylor Kitsch is a hearthrob, but I never saw him as the soul of the show. It was always Coach Taylor with his wife a close second.

This is a fantastic, in-depth examination of one of the most brilliant TV series ever seen. I love the fact that the writers take such time and put so much effort into explaining the emotions and feelings that we viewers feel and felt while watching the series. It makes me happy to know that so many other people had the same connections and reactions. The "Why we love..." Particular characters section is especially fascinating and poignant, And truly on point, as is the section on the realism and the way the TV series deals with difficult economic financial struggles Americans face daily. Bravo!!

Mixed in with informative essays and explanations of how the show came to be, details of casting and filming, are short chapters entitled "Why We Love ___," one for each character. It was great fun to remember the stories, crises, interactions, and teen-aged disasters for each person we cared about so much. I often laughed out loud remembering the script or situation, the Texas-weird language. It's a wonderful book.

These are knowledgeable essays, NOT fan talk. Written by reviewers and writers who know the industry.
