Full Hearts: 'Friday Night Lights' Returns for Its Final Season

It's easy to be overtaken by nostalgia when watching the final season of 'Friday Night Lights,' which begins 9PM ET Wednesday on DirecTV's 101 Network (the final season will air on NBC some time next year).

Loyal viewers been through a lot with these people; we have stuck with the show through so many ups and downs. And just as many of its characters this season and last have said their farewells, soon we'll have to say goodbye to Dillon, Texas.

'Friday Night Lights' has made many of us cry over the years, and it's hard not to get a lump in your throat just thinking about the fact that the show will be over for good soon. Below are some thoughts on the first few episodes of the show's fifth season. (You may wish to wait until Season 5 airs on NBC to read what's below, but this review shouldn't spoil any major plot developments, for either NBC or DirecTV viewers.)

No, today, the actors and their characters are chewed up and spit out in real time, just like life. That means we have to accept that 'Friday Night Lights'' Landry is leaving the show, and with that, Jesse Plemons is off the NBC show. Well, not totally. He'll be out of East Dillon High School, but still living in Dillon, Texas.

Executive producer Jason Katims says that Jesse will be on 'Friday Night Lights' for the fifth and final season, but not a regular. It'll be part-time, which isn't the worst situation. However, with his status as recurring and Taylor Kitsch as Tim definitely gone -- along with Zach Gilford as Matt and Scott Porter as Jason and Gaius Charles as Smash before them -- they're definitely breaking up that old Panther team from the first couple of seasons.

Sigh ... is it too soon to hope for a Dillion Panther Championship team reunion in the next decade?
