Saying goodbye to Dillon, Texas, won't be easy for those who've been with Friday Night Lights from the start--especially those who read the book or saw the movie. Over five years on NBC, students graduated, the high school changed (from West to East Dillon), and Eric and Tami Taylor (Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton) and Buddy Garrity (Brad Leland) remained constants, sometimes making mistakes, but always trying to do right by their kids--biological and otherwise. And few shows offered more believable relationships, from Coach and Tami to Luke (Matt Lauria) and Becky (Madison Burge), who rekindle their romance in the final season.

If the fourth year marked the end of an era, the fifth revolves around new beginnings: Tami returns to her role as guidance counselor (after a controversial reign as principal), Buddy takes his wayward son under his wing, Julie (Aimee Teegarden) has a rough start at college, Billy (Derek Phillips) becomes assistant football coach, Becky moves in with him and his wife, and quarterback Vince (Michael B. Jordan), who continues to see Jess (Jurnee Smollett), tangles with his recently paroled father, Ornette (Cress Williams). Naturally, there are a few new arrivals, but they don't make the same impact as returning Dillon veterans Landry (Jesse Plemons), Jason (Scott Porter), Matt (Zach Gilford), Tyra (Adrianne Palicki), and Billy's younger brother, Tim (Taylor Kitsch), whose adjustment to life after prison parallels Ornette's experience.

This 13-episode arc traces the road to the state championships and marks the end of one of television's most emotionally involving shows, always operating on the principle that everyone can change, and that there's still room on network TV for semi-improvised, documentary-style filmmaking. Deleted scenes, commentary tracks, and a featurette offer a comprehensive look back at a stellar series, truly one of the medium's very best. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

For four years, the residents and students of Dillon, Texas, have faced difficult choices on and off the field with courage, passion and perseverance. Now the time has come to find closure for problems of the past while pursuing new possibilities that will lead many beyond Dillon city limits. But, will everyone be up to the challenge?

5.0 out of 5 stars When the Lights Go Out... January 31, 2011
Format:DVD
The lights have gone out on this fantastic series but it will continue to shine on DVD. Without any spoilers I will say the final season was a great season to go out on. They say that lights shine the brightest right before they burn out and the finale truly proved it. I'm sure many if not all of the fans who have watched it agree (if you haven't been able to view it yet you are in for a treat).

This season was jampacked with stories. I can only imagine how great it would have been had they had 22 episodes like the first season, but the 13 episode season has been as satisfying as any fan could hope for, especially with the beautifully done series finale. Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler continue to ground the show with their amazing performances and all around the acting is terrific. While, as another reviewer said, there is a noticeable lack of football games that we actually get to see there is no shortage in writing quality or character development. Not only are they doing great service to the new cast that was introduced last year, giving them each a chance to really grow as actors and characters, they are calling back and giving each of the original characters a curtain call of some kind.

We get to say farewell to Landry and Grandma Saracen and not to spoil anything but Jason Street and Tyra appear in key moments this season. Matt Saracen makes a brief and welcomed return and Tim Riggins (despite going to jail at the end of last season) does get a chance to finish his character arc. On top of that Smash and Lyla even get nice mentions to show that the writers and the characters haven't forgotten about them. Truly a nostalgic season that has kept true to the spirit and heart the show has always had.

5.0 out of 5 stars FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS-BEST TV SHOW January 3, 2011
Format:DVD
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST TV SHOWS I HAVE EVER WATCHED-FROM THE VERY FIRST SHOW, I WAS A "DIE HARD TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL FAN"...you will find yourself not being able to wait for the next show. You might even find yourself yelling and cheering for the Dillion Panthers/Lions as you would if you were right there at the game... by far the best story lines and characters you will love and even some dislike...Soooo sad this will be the last season, I am not sure there will ever be such a great show like this one, it would be very hard to match this one. I WILL ALWAYS REMAIN A TRUE FAN...GO LIONS-WIN STATE...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Whole is Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts April 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Every person associated with this series should be PROUD of the part they played in this production. There are very few video presentations that I could compare, fiction or non-fiction, with "Friday Night Lights"...only "John Adams" comes to mind right away. The writing, acting, casting, camera work, editing and execution at all levels and of every aspect of this series is extraordinary. Season 5 just happens to be the best of the best; as they might say in Dillon, "It don't get no better."

"Friday Night Lights" goes beyond show business; some might call it a religious experience about good, evil, fairness, foolishness and redemption. The viewer is exposed to the sweet victories, bitter disappointments, shocking surprises and various complexities of life as we watch these skillfull actors play out the poignant scenes that make up the series. Thankfully, the conclusion, as developed throughout Season 5, was definitive; the producers, directors, cameramen and cast brought the various loose ends to sensible and at times loving conclusions.

Everyone of you that may read this: you were brilliant (again & again), and your overwhelming emotion about participation in this fine series should be one thing: PRIDE, PRIDE, PRIDE. Don't forget...we won't.

Format:DVD
A final and appropriate last hurrah for "Friday Night Lights". "Friday Night Lights: The Fifth and Final Season" was a fantastic season that gives fans a final closure to this wonderful series.

In 1990, H.G. Bissinger created the non-fiction book "Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, and a Dream. In 2002, the book would be named the fourth greatest book ever written about sports by Sports Illustrated magazine. And what followed in 2004 is a film adaptation which did very well and is considered one of the best football films ever made.

And in 2006, "Friday Night Lights", the TV series was born.

The TV series was adapted by Peter Berg, Brian Grazer and David Nevins and the first three seasons would focus on Eric Taylor (played by Kyle Chandler) and his family moving to Dillon, Texas where he would coach the Dillon Panthers. The series would focus on Eric and his coaches preparing his football team each week and also getting to know several of the main players who make up the team and of course, the drama which surrounded them.

The series would achieve critical acclaim as many felt the series had an accurate portrayal of middle America and its passion for high school football. Unfortunately, part of the problem was that viewership was never strong and many fans would fight hard to keep this series alive. The series would win a Peabody Award, a Humanitas Price and a Television Critics Association Award and both of the main talents Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton would be nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress awards for the 2010 Emmy Awards.
