Friday Night Lights enters its final season

The beloved, critically acclaimed but ratings challenged Friday Night Lights began its fifth and final season tonight on (interestingly) Direct TV. Hopefully this season will continue to deliver astounding performances, making fans in tears at the thought of bidding goodbye to Coach Taylor, Tami, Julie, Matt, and Landry. Season 5 will entail 13 episodes of, I suspect, heart-tugging story lines and evolving characters. Sadly, I lost track at some point even thought it is one of the best shows on television, so plan to watch the previous seasons before I delve into this one.

Following is a snippet of the premiere. Did you watch the entire episode, and if so, what did you think?
