…And of course.. Tim Riggins. In my imaginary future for him, he became the next Dillon football coach.

And embarrassingly, I was bummed when the OC ended… it’s the trashiest best soap opera ever.

Love for the game of football, comraderie, unbreakable bonds, etc runs through my veins but what makes me love this show is that football is but a tiny aspect of this show.

Over the five seasons, I can think of numerous scenes, instances that made this show so poignant for me that is is impossible to single any out.
Obviously, the relationship that the Taylors have is something that all of us should aspire to work for…BTW, on record, I think that Conne Britton as Tami Taylor is the most attractive woman on TV, mainly because you could prrobably run into a woman just like her in the grocery store.

I just finished viewing season 5 and strongly believe that the season finale was the best that I have ever seen…I would have been satisfied with it ending in the mall with Santa…but the fact that they chose to end it with the hail mary starting in the Cotton Bowl and ending at Pemberton was beautiful.

Tami and Eric walking off Pemberton’s field together was gorgeous…

I can’t say enough

I have never watched the show, but I started watching it on Netflix after reading your post. I watched all 5 seasons in the last couple months while feeding my newborn (seriously great at 3 AM). I finished the last episode last night, and I cried too! I loved this series and agree with your statement about Eric and Tami’s marriage. Thanks again!

I live in Australia, I don’t think it airs here at all as far as I know and I know nothing about American football or Texas. Both my husband and I are are really enjoying it though, thanks for the tip.

Got hooked on it, caught up on all the episodes, and then BAM! It got cancelled. So so sad. (I hear Jay Leno is to blame–I never liked that guy.)

We still miss Veronica Mars, too! Crappy marketing, AWESOME show!

At least we have Modern Family and The Middle!

I cried too that last episode. I gasped when I saw that Luke did not go to college on a football scholarship. I live in Austin and it had been fun to come up on places where they filmed scenes. Coach and Tami Taylor are the best tv couple ever. @Eugenie the tv show is based on the movie that was based on the book. There was a great Fresh Air interview that last Friday of the show. It aired July 15th here is the link! http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=13&prgDate=7-15-2011

I was a latecomer to the show. I began watching it on Netflix last summer with my newborn adopted baby in my arms. I live in Austin, Texas and never cared about the “Dillon Panther” trucks driving around our streets. I fell in love with the show too late…one week before their final taping. Ughh, the agony of not being able to actually see this show being filmed…

I live in the neighborhood where the “Alamo Freeze” and the Taylor and Riggins homes are. Darn it that I didn’t even know it until this summer! My neighbor was even an extra.

I too cried in the last moments of the show. I was so thankful for the happy endings. It’s silly, I get weepy whenever I think back to the last scenes.

I’ve heard there may be a movie?

I wonder how embarassed my husband would be if I started wearing this http://www.nbcuniversalstore.com/detail.php?p=100698
shirt?!

There was not one bad character. Great casting and writing and sets. Wow… sad that there is such a lack of real good drama on the tube.

My husband was a big fan too – it’s so nice when we both enjoy watching something together. This is a great article on the actors’ perspectives – you should definitely take a look if you’re a fan! http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/6766070/clear-eyes-full-hearts-lose

Everything about it was AMAZING! So sad to watch it end. There aren’t many shows that don’t involve lawyers, doctors or police! This one was a winner!

Love the Taylors – I think the portrait of marriage they portrayed is just beautiful and can we talk about Tim Riggins….swoon!

Sad to see it end. We were always commenting about the realism of the relationships, especially Coach and Tammy. Excellent.
Ditto to Parenthood, another one that always gets us talking, laughing, and me crying.
