clear eyes

... full hearts ... can't lose.  

sound familiar?  then you're likely just as excited as i am about the premiere of the 5th and final (tear!) season of friday night lights on nbc tonight.  this phenomenal show about a rural texas football town is the little engine that could.  critically-acclaimed yet lacking in ratings, it escaped cancellation through a first of its kind deal between directv and nbc that allowed the series to continue for 2 more seasons.  if you have directv, you could have watched the final season last fall (or buy the dvd, which came out april 5), but i've decided to savor every last bit of this gem of a show by stretching it out, one episode at a time!

obviously, i highly recommend.  since much of the cast changed during the course of season 4, it might not be too difficult to jump into it now.  or, of course, start from the very beginning (a very good place to start!).

{the cast of season 5}

when i was in austin last weekend, the bf took me to the field where they filmed the dillon panthers' games in season one.  it made me a little giddy.  i love me some tim riggins.  and some coach taylor.  

gees, i am really on the texas bandwagon this week, aren't i?  god bless texas!

  1. I have never understood how people didn't absolutely flock to this show! I thought it was amazing and I can't wait to watch this last season. Coach Taylor is one of my major crushes and I love the relationship he has with Tami. I think I'll miss them the most!!

  2. OMGGG i need to go and rent all the seasons i missed. sad i dont know why i stopped watching this show and now every time i see a commercial for it i get sad.. xoxo jcd:: cornflake dreams

  3. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS <3!!! Ahh, slight obsession!

    your newest follower

  4. How fun! My friend lives close to where they film and I think you can sign up to be a "walk-on extra" !

  5. i am so glad to read all this FNL love!! i admit to crying my way thru the premiere on friday (too many goodbyes!), lol.

    misslivviebelle - i never understood it either, i've been saying the same thing for 5 seasons!

    jillian - yes! definitely catch-up! totally worth it.

    hannah - yay! (and thanks for following, i'm glad you like what you see!)

    jess - i totally would have done that if i lived in austin. lol.

  6. finally it's back so we can discuss! i'm sort of sad that i've already watched it. may have to do a repeat... of the entire series. i asked for one thing from your trip to Texas, a little Tim Riggins, or a little Coach Taylor. i don't think that was too much to ask.


thanks so much for the note! i love reading your comments. xo. di.
