    Default Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Couldn't Lose: An Oral History of Friday Night Lights

    Great retrospective of one of the best shows to ever grace a television set. The final episode airs tomorrow night - and will leave a huge void behind it. Such a fantastic show!

    My living room got unexpectedly dusty quite a few times during the last couple of episodes. What a great show.

    I've got all five seasons on DVD and am probably going to watch them with our 8th grader. I'd like to give her a taste of High School and the decisions and consequences we all have to live with. Not only that, but the accountability involved when you make poor decisions.

    Best network show in quite a while, that's for sure.

    I always thought it was based off the odessa's Permian high school.

    It is - the book Friday Night Lights is behind the movie and the TV show.

    Interesting...care to share why not? I've never heard anyone say they couldn't stand it. I've heard people say they couldn't get into it, but nothing that harsh. Just curious!
