Tear! The Series Finale Of “Friday Night Lights” Is Here. Kind Of.

So, this is kind of awkward. While I just excitedly heard the news that the fifth and final season of “Friday Night Lights” will be starting on NBC on April 15, and am still drooling over this 30-second promo video, anyone who has DirecTV witnessed the show’s season finale last night. Now, I had told myself that I was going to read the episode summaries and reviews of the show’s final episode this morning and write something about it today. But I just can’t bring myself to do it and ruin the whole season for myself. This was as far as I got—the first paragraph of The Daily Beast review, before the dreaded “spoiler alert” warning, which tells me that “the series finale gave its characters the happy endings—or new beginnings—that they so desperately deserved.” Does that mean that Tim Riggins packs up his truck and comes to meet me in New York?

What Happened To Tim Riggins’ Hair?

Can we please have a moment of silence for Tim Riggins’ signature long locks? Super dreamy actor Taylor Kitsch — who plays the world’s hottest football player with a heart of gold on “Friday Night Lights” — appeared on “The Marilyn Denis Show” sporting a disturbingly cropped haircut. Look, he’s still beautiful, but I hope he donated those follicles to a museum. If not, he could put them in a baggy and mail ‘em to me and I’ll take care of it. Texas forever, man.

Connie Britton Sadsies About The End Of “Friday Night Lights”

“I think I’m still in shock about it actually. We are used to going away for a long hiatus and then going back, so the fact we’re not going back has yet to sink in… The last three episodes especially are incredibly special. They are going to be extraordinary moments in television… The goal really was to give the audience a sense of where every character would be going. Not in an overly neat way, I think there will be a lot of questions left hanging but you will also see the next trajectory for each one of these characters. It’s that beautiful thing where on one hand, you’re saying goodbye, but on the other, you’re wondering where they’re going next. I think it’s quite perfect.”

—Connie Britton, aka Tami Taylor on “Friday Night Light,” talks about the final season of the show. Lucky folks with DirecTV got to watch the first episode last night. The rest of us will have to wait until the spring, when NBC will air it. Which is obviously purely evil. [NY Post] Keep reading »

“Friday Night Lights: The Final Season” Preview Makes Us Teary


I’d like to talk about the injustice of this world. The preview for “Friday Night Lights” season five, is out and, as expected, it is gorgeously shot and the show’s stars all look stunning—from Tammy Taylor to my new fave character, Vince. But where is Tim Riggins?!?!? Please tell me that Taylor Kitsch has not flown the coop for this season, like Minka Kelly and Adrienne Palicki before him, because “FNL” without Tim is like the earth without sun. Also, does this really have to be the final season of the show? That just isn’t right. And the final thing that makes me scream “it’s not fair!”: DirecTV subscribers will get to watch the season starting on October 27 while the rest of us will have to wait until the spring. Sigh.

Today’s Lady News: “Friday Night Lights” Teen Character Chooses An Abortion

  • Wow, so “Friday Night Lights” did have an abortion on the show. After getting pregnant by one of the boys on the football team, 10th grader Becky decided to terminate the pregnancy. That makes Becky one of the few female TV characters to actually go through with an abortion instead of accidentally miscarrying at the last second. [New York Times, Feministing]

  • Forever 21 is launching a new maternity line, love21maternity, in Utah, Alaska, Arizona, California, and Texas. The last three states just happen to have some of the highest percentages of teen pregnancy in the country. Maybe that’s just a coincidence, though? [TheGloss.com]

Today’s Lady News: Will There Be An Abortion On “Friday Night Lights”?

  • Last week on “Friday Night Lights,” 15-year-old Becky discovered she was pregnant and considered having an abortion. If she goes through with it in the episode airing tonight, “Friday Night Lights” would be one of the few shows to not pull the “Whoops, she fell down the stairs and miscarried!” card. I’ve never seen “Friday Night Lights,” but I’m curious. So, Frisky readers, tell me what happens tonight in the comments! [Reproductive Health Reality Check]
  • Yesterday, a judge in Massachusetts ruled that the portion of the Defense of Marriage Act that defines marriage as between a man and a woman is unconstitutional. The judge declared gays and lesbians whose marriages are recognized by their individual states should have access to the same federal benefits as married straight couples. [Newsweek]

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Guys Of “Friday Night Lights”

Shun Shag Or Marry

It’s Friday! Which means that the only thing I can think about is getting home in time to watch the mouth-watering men of “Friday Night Lights.” It’s hard for me to choose which dude is more savory. Every week I have a different favorite. And did I mention how much I love all the new characters this season? Don’t think I didn’t notice little Luke Cafferty shirtless last week, and Vince Howard’s not looking too shabby either. Sigh, so many to choose from. After the jump, my current picks for whom I would shun, shag, or marry … at least for this week. Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of May 10th 2010

I just realized that it’s been more than two months since I’ve gone to see a movie. Why? Because why pay $10+ to sit in a freezing theater when I can park it on the couch and watch all the amazingness that is my television. This week, like all weeks this month, I am super pumped for the final episodes of “Lost.” But there’s some other great stuff going down, too, like the season finale of “America’s Next Top Model,” fresh episodes of “Friday Night Lights” (finally!), and a “Simpsons”-themed dose of “Top Chef Masters.” After the jump, check out previews.

Taylor Kitsch Just Sunk My Battleship

If you are a devoted fan of “Friday Night Lights” like I am, you probably have a Pavlovian response—either drooling or sweating—when you hear the name Taylor Kitsch, aka Tim Riggins. I’m sorry, but it just shouldn’t be legal for a dude to be that hot. Couple his inherent hotness with the fact that he plays a bad boy football player with a heart of gold and you’ve got the makings of a category five libidinal hurricane. All this time I’ve been thinking I was kind of pervy for thinking a high school boy was so hot. But as it turns out, he is 29! That’s 11 years more than legal. Even though I’m sad that he’s graduating from “FNL” (this is his last season), we haven’t seen the last of his six-pack. He has a few films in the works, but there’s one that sounds like a hit. Word is that Taylor just landed a role as a “wildly spirited” Naval commander in the film adaption of our favorite childhood board game, Battleship. His character, Alex Hopper, will battle the open seas and save the world when aliens invade earth. I hope by “wildly spirited” they mean wet and naked. [NY Post] Keep reading »
