When it comes to really good teen drama television, it’s safe to say Friday Night Lights did not get the credit it deserved. The show ran for only 5 seasons from 2006-2011 but its short-lived run didn’t make us love it any less. Unlike most series similar to it, Friday Night Lights spawned off a movie and not only was it at least as good as the film, it was arguably better and drew in fans even if they didn’t like football which was the central premise of the show. Sure we don’t miss Julie but we miss basically everything else about the show from the storylines to the characters and the all-around excitement it gave us for five amazing seasons.
10. Coach and Tami Taylor
Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton may be the most perfect fictional couple ever. Sure we miss Coach Eric Taylor and his wife Tami Taylor separately, but together they were absolutely the best. Somehow we couldn’t decide if we were attracted to Coach or if we loved him in the “I wish he was my dad” way and we definitely wanted Tami to be our mom or at least our best friend. Just one of the many reasons why FNL wasn’t “just another teen show” is because we were most definitely just as concerned about the lives and relationship of these two adult characters. How in the world this wonderful couple ended up with the most annoying daughter in TV history we will never know, but we miss them all the same.
