It's got some of the best acting, writing and direction on TV today. It tackles issues like racism, sex and drug use without coming off as overbearing or preachy. It's one of the few dramas on television that has remained consistently good throughout its run... and I bet you've never even seen an episode. Well, now that both seasons of the critically acclaimed (but criminally underwatched) drama Friday Night Lights are on DVD, you really have no excuse for not treating yourself to some fine primetime television.
The second season picks up a little after where the first left off. Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) is away from his wife, Tami (Connie Britton), and daughter, Julie (Aimee Teegarden), so he can coach outside of Dillon, which is complicated by the birth of his new baby girl. Meanwhile, Landry (Jesse Plemons) gets closer to Tyra (Andrianne Palicki) after a major incident; Smash (Gaius Charles) begins to narrow down his list of prospective universities; Matt's (Zach Gilford) relationship with Julie begins to fizzle; Lyla (Minka Kelly) devotes her life to God; and Tim (Taylor Kitsch) and Jason (Scott Porter) continue to struggle with their own personal hardships, something that inevitably brings the two closer towards the end.
