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

Or the 127th. Clear eyes, full heart.

1. Friday Night Lights: The Beginning

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

Let’s see what all the fuss is about

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

But is it a show all about Football?

4. You don’t really even like Football

5. But you quickly notice there’s potential…

And his name is Tim Riggins

6. Like this could really be something good

Maybe even love

7. Things start to heat up

8. And before you know it - you’re sold - this show IS good

9. Like really good

10. Even Grandma likes it

11. She likes Riggins too

Back off Grandma

12. Watching it just makes you happy

Of course I want to watch another episode

13. Like you wanna DANCE happy

14. You can’t wait to thank those friends who first introduced you

And hug them!

15. And suddenly you’re all into Football

16. You even have a team

The Dillon Panthers

17. And you know who wears which number

Whose jersey would you rather wear?

18. You can’t look away - the show consumes you

It’s just so beautiful

19. You’re spending more and more time on the couch with your new Boo

Boo = Friday Night Lights

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

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

21. It’s all you want to talk about

22. But not everyone is quite as interested

23. And some begin to worry you’re moving too fast

24. But ‘clearly’ they don’t understand

You see what I did there

25. You’ve found love and you’re gonna run with it

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

27. And eventually with some tough love those haters finally give in

28. Of course they’re very thankful to you

They’ll never question your wisdom again

29. Told you so…

You did

30. And You’re Welcome

31. You’re just happy you could spread the love

32. Pay it forward

33. Life is good

34. And then one day you wake up and you’re on Season 5, Episode 13

35. The. Last. Episode.

36. You can’t do this alone

37. How can it just be over?

Did you do something wrong?

38. Things were going so good?

39. But all good things must come to an end

40. It hurts…

Hurts real bad

41. Grandma’s sad too

42. But man was it good while it lasted

43. And now it’s time to say goodbye

44. It’s going to be OK. You’re going to be OK.

45. You’re walking away with some great memories

46. And some pretty fantastic words of wisdom


47. Texas Forever
