To celebrate the Monday 25th release of the first season of acclaimed TV drama Friday Night Lights, we’ve got some special posters/postcards and three copies of Peter Berg’s Friday Night Lights feature film to give away.
Currently showing on Sky Atlantic, Friday Night Lights has been lauded for its realistic portrayal of small town America and the deep personal exploration of its central characters. The launch pad for man of the moment Taylor Kitsch (Battleship, X-Men Origins, John Carter), Emmy-winning Kyle Chandler (Grey’s Anatomy, King Kong, Super 8), TV favourite Connie Britton (24, The West Wing) and the beautiful Minka Kelly (500 Days of Summer). With stand-out supporting roles from Amy Teegarden (90210, Scream 4), Jesse Plemons (Paul, Battleship) Zach Gilford (Greys Anatomy) and Adrianne Palicki (Supernatural); the first season draws you into the heart of the action, the Pilot episode alone setting the bar for five unflinching and absorbing seasons.
The current state of the romcom is epitomised by mediocrity and bewildering commercial success. Cashing in on ‘all-star’ casts or burning out with lazy fart jokes, the romcom has almost stopped trying altogether. Hope, though, is never too far off. Overseen by Judd Apatow, The Five-Year Engagement reunites the team behind the recent Muppets movie and the delightful Forgetting Sarah Marshall as Jason Segel takes up writing (and acting) duties with Nicholas Stoller in the director’s chair.
