Friday Night Lights

After two years, a lot of viewers still haven’t become season-ticket holders for Friday Night Lights, NBC’s terrific drama about family, community, the transition from adolescence to adulthood, and (oh, yeah) football. Now’s your chance to catch up on the program that we ranked at No. 71 on our list of the Top 100 TV Series of the last 25 years in the new EW 1000 issue. You can start with the show’s pilot episode, embedded below; if you’re already an FNL fan, call this a highlight reel.

This is the sixth installment in’s selection of 10 great episodes of programs on our top 100 list. We’re streaming an episode from a different show every day, or you can watch the entire slate in one sitting at Hulu. The first half of the list is here; Part 2 is here.
