  1. Friday Night Lights is an amazing show, I watched all five seasons last summer. Didn’t take long either, seasons 3-5 were only 13 episodes each.

    Hopefully it gets some love at the Emmys too!

  2. I’m up to watching the second season of Friday Night Lights on DVD , this show Is a real powerhouse , Kyle Chandler Is outstanding as the coach , I really hope he gets the emmy this year .

  3. ABC2 has just started airing Friday Night Lights again from the beginning on Friday nights at 8:30. Last week was ep 2 of season 1. Fantastic show!

  4. Well done to Friday Night Lights. I’ve been a major fan of this show and its great to see it get the recognition that it deserves.

    Always happy for The Amazing Race to get an award.
