Ahh TV series, what would you do without them.

In this hell hole that we live in, TV series give us some hope and a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, a temporarily escape from our everyday mundane life into a reality that was once what we were but now lost in the 21st Century fast pace living, where everything is me me me and me again.

FNL. Friday Night Lights, the movie that became a TV Series, the TV Series above all other TV Series. The only show on this planet that can make a grown up man cry, cry like bloody baby crying.

The show is very good at capturing moments from different angle, capturing the expression, the kind of expression that we can relate to, because we have been there and we know the feeling, that sad/angry/happy feeling. 

Unlike most show now, this show catch you from the very first episode, as the build up to the very first game, you can feel the tension, and the show knows exactly how to bring that tense feeling a notch every single minute, up to the start of the game and BAM, shit happens. 

Its just like life, we plan and plan, we budget, we save and BAM shit happens.

And of course the best quote from the show, "Give all of us gathered here tonight the strength to remember that life is so very fragile. We are all vulnerable, and we will all, at some point in our lives... fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts... that what we have is special. That it can be taken from us, and when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will now all be tested. It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves."

Well this is how Coach Taylor looks like for the entire 5 season of the show
