friday night lights season 5 dvdIn a way, it's a good thing that 'Friday Night Lights' is now over. The entire series can now be viewed as a complete masterwork on DVD, with the fifth and final season hitting stores today.

The fantastic drama about a small Texas town has languished in the ratings. Despite endless praise from critics and devoted fans, a public enraptured by reality TV and forensic science neglected the show, relegating the Dylan Panthers and their cheering section to the bottom of the Nielsen charts. But, somehow, the TV gods allowed 'FNL' to continue spinning its inspiring, captivating and ultimately heroic tale for five seasons.

In the end, some characters moved on, some stayed put, and showrunner Jason Katims smartly shined the spotlight on the series' star players, Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton.

The Season 5 DVD features final-episode commentary from Katims as well as a tearjerker featurette about the show's five-season run. Buy it!
