In the small town of Dillon, Texas, one night matters: Friday Night. Eric Taylor has recently been hired as the head football coach for the Dillon High School Panthers, the town's pride and joy.

All these people saying the camera was too shaky? I didn't even notice. Listen, it's not our fault if you can't concentrate on something for longer than ten seconds.
Most of the people who have given this poor ratings are just people who were expecting this to be a live NFL game or something. Don't listen to them. Football is an important part of the show, but it's secondary to the characters, who are deeply explored and easily related to.
Do yourself a favour and watch this from the very first season until the last. You won't regret it. Oh, and NBC, please bring this show back. One of the few shows I've ever really loved.
