Product Description

Friday Night Lights shines brighter than ever as the critically acclaimed series arrives in a 4-disc collection in 5.1 surround sound! From producers Brian Grazer (The Da Vinci Code), Peter Berg (The Kingdom) and Jason Katims and inspired by the best-selling book and hit film, Friday Night Lights provides a heartfelt look at the families, friendships, and faiths of residents in a closely knit Texan town. Featuring an incredible ensemble cast, this intense and compelling show has critics saying "there is no finer or truer drama on network TV" (Matt Roush, TV Guide).


Friday Night Lights is deeply entrenched in the world of football and teamwork, but the series transcends sports and delves into rich, human relationships that at times are heartbreakingly real. A compelling drama, the show also features one of the strongest (and best looking) ensemble casts. The second season fulfills the promise of its debut. Full of drama, heart, and superb acting, the series is set in fictional Dillon, Texas--a town where everyone lives and breathes football. The first season had Coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) accepting a college coaching job, while his pregnant wife Tami (Connie Britton) and their 16-year-old daughter Julie (Aimee Teegarden) stayed behind in Dillon. Unfulfilled by his diminished duties and cognizant of the fact that he no longer is the head guy who calls all the shots, Eric returns to the Dillon Panthers. Meanwhile, Julie breaks up with starting quarterback Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford), who ends up finding love with a young nurse's aide. Paralyzed football hero Jason Street (Scott Porter) tries to find his place in the world, moving out of his parents' home and accepting--and then quitting--an assistant coaching job with the Dillon Panthers. And bad boy Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) gets thrown off the squad and ends up squatting in a meth dealer's home before Coach Taylor temporarily takes him in. But the strongest storyline belongs to Gaius Charles, who is pitch perfect as cocky star runningback Brian "Smash" Williams. Ensured a spot on a university with an elite football program, Williams believes that he is unstoppable. When a run-in with some racist kids turns into a media frenzy, the school rescinds its invitation and Smash finds himself scrambling to get into any school, regardless of its football program. A powerful actor who is equally adept at portraying a strutting football hero as he is a humbled teen, Charles conveys passion as well as numbing reality. Season two also deals with the aftermath of Tyra Collette (Adrianne Palicki) and Landry Clarke (Jesse Plemons), who try to cover up a murder. While the storyline is flawed and implausible, the actors do a stellar job with the material. It is also sweet to watch the couple's relationship--initially based on desperation--forge into a strong friendship and romance. Things don't always end neatly, but that only adds to the drama of Friday Night Lights. Look for series writer Peter Berg to guest star as Tami's former high-school boyfriend and Eric's nemesis. If the finale seems a little disjointed, it is because of the 2008 writers strike, which forced the series to truncate its episodes from a planned 22 episodes to just 15. The four-disc set also includes audio commentary and almost 40 minutes of deleted footage. --Jae-Ha Kim

    It pains me to give this show anything less than five stars. Like many, though not all, who watch this show, I loved the first season, even going out on a limb to say it is one of the best single seasons of television I have ever seen, if not the best.
    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.

    Update: FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS has been saved!!! I promised to keep posting updates on FNL and I finally have an exciting one. Multiple sources are now reporting that FNL will be renewed for a 3rd Season! According to Mike Ausiello, a deal with DirectTV is in place, but not signed. To their credit, NBC, although they knew they would no longer broadcast the series exclusively, went out and sought a partner to keep the series alive. It isn't clear yet how the deal will work, but most likely DirectTV will pay NBC for the rights to broadcast new episodes first and then NBC will rebroadcast them a few days later. I personally hope that DirectTV will show it earlier in the week and NBC on Friday evening. It just seems appropriate. So, if this story is true, FNL truly has been saved. I'll come back later an reedite my review as a whole, excising completely the memory that we very nearly lost this brilliant show.

    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.

    Honestly, season 2 is a great season, but compared to season 1, it has its problems. Season 2 still has the great stories within stories, the serious tone mixed with the playful and humorous writing, and also the heart breaking moments smashed together with the shocking surprises. Even with the season's faults, it's still one of the `must see' TV shows out there.

    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?

    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.
