Few shows have resonated with fans quite like Friday Night Lights did. Although it was unceremoniously canceled before its time, it did have an amazing five seasons that took the characters and consequently viewers on quite a ride of emotions, changes and developments. The focus on football, different relationship dynamics and a wide variety of different characters made the show a fast hit with much more than just the usual “teen drama” audience because the show was so much more than that. While there should be a much greater base to choose from because we all wish the show had gone on for a good ten seasons, there are a few episodes that stand out above the rest, although an argument could be made for pretty well all of them. Relive the greatness of the show with the 11 Most Memorable Episodes of Friday Night Lights.
11. “Last Days of Summer” S2, E1
Fans of the show did not have a lot of great things to say about season two and mostly due to two things: Julie got even more annoying than we thought possible and of course the bizarre murder plot line concerning Landry and Tyra. What didn’t help is that both of these things were made apparent in the very first episode of season two, sending the whole thing into a downward spiral, but, like it or not, we cannot deny that sweet and lovable Landry killing Tyra’s attacker was not downright memorable. The moment was so fast and fleeting we weren’t sure what was going on was actually happening until the guy was in fact dead thanks to Landry. Friday Night Lights had opened up characters and shocked us in season one, but this one we were in no way ready for.
