- TV. Watch. Repeat. -Our Podcast Dives Into The History Of 'Friday Night Lights' & Connie Britton's Hair
Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. Even though Friday Night Lights almost did — many times. Despite the beloved NBC-turned-DirecTV series being a fan and reviewer favorite, the series fumbled in the ratings, threatening its existence year after year. But credit sheer tenacity (or the power of Connie Britton's hair) for Friday Night Lights continuing for five seasons, and delivering some of the best television a network has ever delivered.
And the pilot? Well, it's nothing less than a touchdown. And that's precisely what my TV. Watch. Repeat. co-host Allison Piwowarski and I discuss in our latest episode of our podcast. Not only do we dig into the innovative way Friday Night Lights shot its episodes, but we also find out the scandalous story about Kyle Chandler's casting — and the unmistakable chemistry between Chandler and Britton. Plus, we discover which actor was the absolute worst football player.
So grab your Lone Star tallboys, and enjoy our latest episode of TV. Watch. Repeat. on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts. And be sure to check out our daily pop culture podcast, Pop Chaser, for all your entertainment headline needs.
