New promo for Friday Night Lights

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Oct 11th 2009 1:36PM
With the return of Friday Night Lights right around the corner (it premieres on Wednesday, October 28, at 9PM on DirecTV's 101 Network), there's been a lot of talk about who's returning, who isn't, and just what the heck is gonna happen now that Eric (Kyle Chandler) is coaching the East Dillon Lions and not the Dillon Panthers anymore. There's been plenty of news, too, regarding new characters and how the good-bye arcs for favorites like Matt (Zach Gilford), Tyra (Adrianne Palicki), and Lyla (Minka Kelly) are going to play out

Well, DirecTV has finally released a short promo for the new season and guess what? Despite the fact that it features new footage (as opposed to a recycled season three montage), it gives us absolutely nothing.

But it is pretty damn cool to look at. The set up of a tornado-esque storm ripping apart Dillon and culminating in a rift across the football field while everyone just sort of casually watches and walks away is pretty poetic. You know what else would be poetic? Seeing Eric shove his fist down Joe McCoy's throat in the season four premiere. We can only hope.

It was the NBC decision to move it to the summer, not CBS.

But I agree that the promos seem to be for a different type of show. But they are similar to the ones from S3. All "supernatural" looking.

I don't really get these new promos. If I didn't know it was for FNL I'd think it'd be some sci-fi type promo. Now the others (Coach's & Tara's speaches) are exactly what they should be doing. Those are great.

And brendoman, I don't get what you're angry about. Like you said, it probably would have been canceled if Directv didn't save it. Would you rather have to wait a few months to see it or not see it at all?

I personally would love to see Eric shove his fist down the CBS Execs who bumped the show to Summer 2010's throats. The whole DirecTV thing angers me. I know without it the show probably would have been canceled, but still. Awesome video though.
