10 years ago, our lives changed when Friday Night Lights premiered on NBC.
Sure, it seems a tad over-dramatic to say a TV show can change a person's life, but if you think that, then we can guarantee you've probably never watched Friday Night Lights, the series, which ran from 2006-11, and was based on the 2004 movie that was based on the 1990 book. If you haven't, believe us when we tell you that watching this show will make you a better person. It's a scientific fact. Trust us, we watch a lot of medical shows.
Starring Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, among an insanely long and talented roster of young and mostly unknown actors, FNL was about so much more than just football; it was an inspiring, heartbreaking, sometimes brutally realistic look at small town life, how it can fill you, suffocate you, or, in many cases, do both at the same time.
