FNL Series Finale: "Wet Eyes, Broken Hearts, Can't Breathe"

I stole that headline from NY Magazine because there's no way I can come up with a more apt description for the series finale of Friday Night Lights. I've been home sick for two days, so I decided to go ahead & watch the series finale of FNL, which I've been sitting on for weeks.

I started watching FNL back in October & have quickly plowed through all five seasons. Tiffany tried in vain to get me to watch it years ago, but I wouldn't have it. I had zero interest in a tv show about Texas and/or football. Oh, how wrong I was....

This is one of the best shows I've ever watched. It's embarrassing how much I've come to love & feel for these fictional characters. Not to spoil anything for those of you who are currently watching Season Five on NBC, but I was pleased with the finale. They brought back everyone I wanted them to bring back & I feel like they tied up all of the loose ends that I would have wondered about. Oh, and you better believe I cried.

I know a couple of you are also watching & I'm curious as to how many of you have watched the series finale & if so, what your thoughts were?

My days are going to be a little darker without Tim Riggins, Coach Taylor, et al.... To again quote the NY Mag article, "And always remember this: TV shows come and go. But Texas? Texas is forever."
