But the second season falters as soon as it begins, in the lead off episode. And, if you have yet to watch this season, please stop reading here, as I will be giving away some spoliers and what have you and I do not want to ruin anything for you.
The murder subplot that ran through parts of the season is simply inane. It feels false, unfocused, and brings every episode that it is featured to a dramatic hault. What's strange is it this sort of sensationlism that the show avoided in it's first year. Other subplots--- such as Jason Street's little trip to Mexico--- also feel false and uninspired, the work of the writers trying to amp ratings to keep the show on the air.
The season smooths out as it goes along however, and after a few episodes the show returns to it's past glory. The acting, like previously, is universally strong (how Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, amongst others in the cast, cannot get nominated for more awards is astounding and ridiculous to me), and the story lines alternate between amusing (Tim Riggins continues attempts to woe Lyla Garrity) to heart breaking (pretty much anything dealing with Smash Williams and Matt Seracen).
The attempt to get higher ratings is totally okay with me. A decent "Friday Night Lights" is still better than most shows best hours. And though this season falters at the start, it ends strong and, sadly, far to abruptly.
'Friday Night Lights" second season may not be as strong as it's first, but I'm sure nothing could have been. But it is still a compelling, often brilliant collection of episodes, and essential for fans of the show, book or movie.
I write this only a few minutes after the final episode of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS was broadcast on NBC. This past week Ben Silverman, who took over as the head of NBC this past summer, threw ice water in the faces of all those who hoped that this extraordinary series might have a future on NBC. For years NBC has been my favorite network, just as FOX, which has killed shows at the drop of a hat, was my least favorite. The irony is that the former head of NBC, who was responsible for keeping such critically acclaimed shows (but ratings challenged) like FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, THE OFFICE, and 30 ROCK is now one of the powers that be at FOX, while my formerly favorite network is threatening to pull the plug on this absolutely brilliant series.Read more ›
I don't really want to bash one of my favorite shows, but I want to be honest with people who read this. There are many things that this season could've done better in my opinion. Certain stories just seemed out of place, or maybe even to grown up for just high school kids. For instance, ***Don't read this until you see the asterisk if you don't want to be spoiled.... For instance, when Landry and Tyra kill that guy, they decide to throw him in the river. Why? Why not just call the cops and explain to them what happened. They are just kids, and probably nothing will happen to them. Even if they waited to call the cops after they threw him in the river, they STILL would've probably have gotten off easy if they just claimed that they were scared and confused or whatever. And how come Landry is such a smart kid, yet he seemed like a TOTAL dummy when it came to confessing the murder. Seriously man... just say you were scared for yours and hers life. Goodness. *** I don't know... it just seemed like a forced story line that really got in the way of what is great about this show. Other things that aren't story spoilers that made me mad was Smash's Mom. Seriously...do you want your VERY TALENTED child who is one of the most wanted RB's to go to a college like Whitmore instead of Alabama or Georgia or Miami or USC? I mean... what are you thinking?Read more ›

|gap between end of season 2 and beginning of season 3||
Now that FNL has shown it's last wonderful episode on NBC, I also wish they would address what was planned for those 7 not produced episodes in 2008. How did Smash get injured? What ever happened with the character Peter Berg played?
I hope a new movie gets made.
