“The show will be remembered more as one about a marriage than one about football.”

I don’t know how I missed this article at Grantland: An Oral History of Friday Night Lights. It’s great fun for anyone that loved the show. I was thrilled to read that the actor Kyle Chandler (Coach Taylor) gave a coach-like speech to the cast at one point, and that after the wrap party — at two o’clock in the morning — the whole cast played touch football together.

I saw someone just recently tweet something about how the show’s fans all willfully ignored the nonsense in the second season when Tyra and Landry killed that one guy. That made me laugh. Aside from that, though, it really was a very solid show for five seasons.

The entire series is available on Amazon.com. I highly recommend it.
