Never in a million years would have watched this but Chelsea Lately mentioned it was her favorite show (as well as the favorite of everyone on her staff) and since I love her I decided to try it. AM ADDICTED!! I fell in love with several of the characters and pretty much couldn't stop watching. Bought it as stocking stuffers for my mom and sis who both love dramas and they were up all night for 3 days straight watching it.

Product Overview

TV's hottest new drama, Friday Night Lights, touches down on DVD with all 14 Season One episodes! In the small town of Dillon, everyone comes together on Friday nights when the Dillon High Panthers play. But life is not a game; and the charismatic players, new coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler), and the passionate fans find that their biggest challenges and obstacles come off the field in the compelling day-to-day dramas of their tight-knit community. From producers Brian Grazer (The Da Vinci Code) and Peter Berg (The Kingdom) comes the critically acclaimed TV series inspired by the best-selling novel and hit theatrical movie. Discover why The Associated Press calls it "breathtaking in how it captures ordinary life set against extraordinary passions."

Editors Note
Note Football is one of the most popular sports in America, but in Texas it's closer to religion. The first season of this award-winning show uses the game as focal point for each episode's structure, but the gridiron often takes the backseat to the more pressing issues of life in Middle America. The real star of the show is the fictional town of Dillon, a place that represents the struggle of hard-working-yet-flawed human beings getting through another year of life in a small community. The town's team, the Panthers, may be headed for the top, but can their coach (EARLY EDITION's Kyle Chandler) and the players keep it together as the pressure of their personal lives threatens to knock them down?
Ultimate DVD 3 stars out of 5 -- "The show follows the wins and losses of the Dillon Panthers, and the texture of the lives affected by the game....[With] some genuine heart." 10/01/2007 p.118
Empire 5 stars out of 5 -- "Shot docudrama-style with handheld cameras, long single takes and improvisation, it transcends soap and melodrama with rare, spot-on naturalism." 12/01/2007 p.230
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]ntriguing....The is ONE TREE HILL with the veneer stripped off and the dialogue polished up." 01/01/2008 p.167

ReviewSource Variety
Review In pigskin-crazy Texas, a coach saying "It's only football" is strictly a joke, recalling the old line about a big game not being life or death, "It's more important than that." Peter Berg directed the feature "Friday Night Lights" and has brought its ethos to TV mostly intact, crafting a serialized soap around the local high school team, whose first-year coach labors under an entire town's expectations. Earnest, beautifully shot and perhaps more organically religious than anything else in primetime, the series will have its fans..."Friday Night Lights" ultimately feels like one of those family programs middle America and conservatives pine for that too few of them actually bother to watch -- a portrait of decent, God-fearing folks wringing joy from America's game as an escape from their hardscrabble lives.

Chris Beaumont, Draven99's Musings The series transcends genre, it combines elements of teen drama, teen romance, adult drama, sports, and probably a few others.
Peter Brown, If Magazine ...unlike anything else on television...a slick, high quality production with strong acting and a compelling drama...
USA Today ...heartfelt of the best-acted, best-written, best produced shows on television.
