A Friday Night Lights Companion: Love, Loss, and Football in Dillon, Texas by Leah Wilson

Introduction by Will Leitch, founding editor of Deadspin

Talk to any of the millions of devoted Friday Night Lights fans and they’ll tell you: it’s not just a show about high school football. Its rich, interesting characters and honestly portrayed relationships make the show’s portrait of West Texas life compelling and relatable in ways that have nothing—and everything—to do with touchdowns.

A Friday Night Lights Companion celebrates the show, its fearlessness, and what it’s meant to those who love it.

Dave Campbell’s Texas Football managing editor Travis Stewart provides a moving tribute to the power of high school football, by way of unlikely hero Matt Saracen
• Jonna Rubin shares the lessons she’s learned from the best marriage on television: Eric and Tami Taylor’s (lesson number one: drink more wine)
• Television Without Pity writer Jacob Clifton offers a meditation on one of Friday Night Lights’ most fundamental values: being a part of something bigger than yourself
The Washington Post’s Jen Chaney reminds us what we love most about all our favorite Dillon residents, from Tim Riggins to Buddy Garrity to Jess Merriweather
• And more writing and reflections on Friday Night Lights

A Friday Night Lights Companion takes you from series pilot to series finale, through all five masterfully crafted seasons’ worth of love, loss, family, and football.

Texas Forever: Why ‘Friday Night Lights’ Remains The Greatest Show On Television

There are many people for whom FNL would not seem an obvious choice for obsession; I am one of them. Little about a television show centered around a small Texas town's high school football team seemed all that appealing to me. I didn't watch the series when it first premiered, despite reading here and there about what an exceptional show it was, and despite acknowledging that Taylor Kitsch aka Tim Riggins aka 33 was, you know, pretty hot. Eventually, I got around to binge-watching it on Netflix for all the reasons that one usually gets around to binge-watching things on Netflix: I was bored, and it was a good way to pass the time with a guy I was maybe starting to see, and definitely already liked.

This listicle contains many, many spoilers!, What better moment to look back and celebrate the greatest shows in the history of the art form? So we undertook a major poll — actors, writers, producers, critics, showrunners.

Depending on your personal criteria, Friday Night Lights may be the best show ever made. It is, certainly, the best television show about football. But if that's something that'll turn you off, also know that it's not really about football. Friday Night Lights is crafty like that. I love Friday Night Lights.
