What It's Like Watching "Friday Night Lights" For The First Time

Or the 127th. Clear eyes, full heart.

Friday Night Lights: The Beginning

After hearing another friend gush - you decide you're going to give it a shot.


Let's see what all the fuss is about

You log into Netflix and do your best to get PUMPED!

But is it a show all about Football?

You don't really even like Football

But you quickly notice there's potential...


And his name is Tim Riggins

Like this could really be something good

Maybe even love

Things start to heat up

And before you know it - you're sold - this show IS good

Like really good

Even Grandma likes it

She likes Riggins too

Back off Grandma

Watching it just makes you happy

Of course I want to watch another episode

Like you wanna DANCE happy

You can't wait to thank those friends who first introduced you

And hug them!

And suddenly you're all into Football

You even have a team

The Dillon Panthers

And you know who wears which number

Whose jersey would you rather wear?

You can't look away - the show consumes you

It's just so beautiful

You're spending more and more time on the couch with your new Boo

Boo = Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights benders have become a regular thing in your household

And maybe you watched an entire season in one day... twice

It's all you want to talk about

But not everyone is quite as interested

And some begin to worry you're moving too fast

But 'clearly' they don't understand

You see what I did there

You've found love and you're gonna run with it

If they don't want to be happy for you they can find another parade to rain on

And eventually with some tough love those haters finally give in

Of course they're very thankful to you

They'll never question your wisdom again

Told you so...

You did

And You're Welcome

You're just happy you could spread the love

Pay it forward

Life is good

And then one day you wake up and you're on Season 5, Episode 13

The. Last. Episode.

You can't do this alone

How can it just be over?

Did you do something wrong?

Things were going so good?

But all good things must come to an end

It hurts...

Hurts real bad

Grandma's sad too

But man was it good while it lasted

And now it's time to say goodbye

It's going to be OK. You're going to be OK.

You're walking away with some great memories

And some pretty fantastic words of wisdom
