Friday Night Lights makes Access’ Top 10 TV Campus Classics

Yep, that’s right, FNL made it to number 5! Have to say sadly I agree with the moment to forget, that storyline was just not constructed as well as it could have been…

#5 – “Friday Night Lights”: Every Dillon Panther knows that, “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose!” At first glance, a series centered around a small town Texas high school football team could seem ripe for worn-out sports cliches and played out teenage stereotypes. But, the NBC drama (which was almost canceled!) has proven to be one of the best-written and acted shows in recent memory. The stellar (and always overlooked by Emmy voters) Kyle Chandler (Coach Eric Taylor) and Connie Britton (Principal Tami Taylor) head up an ensemble cast of high school students battling to make their way through their lives – that just happens to be framed by a town obsessed with high school football. Most Memorable Moment: Star quarterback Jason Street (played by Scott Porter) getting parlayed during the series game opener. Moment To Forget: The emotional – yet cliche storyline – where Landry Clarke (played by Jesse Plemons) kills Tyra Collette’s (played by Adrianne Palicki) rapist.
