NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Friday Night Lights (2006–2011) is an hour-long drama series based on the feature film and book of the same name. Unlike the book and movie, the series is entirely fictional. In the small rural town of Dillon, Texas, the vaunted 2006 state football championship rings are held in the highest regard. The town's promising high school team, its star quarterback, and newly appointed head coach Eric Taylor feel the mounting pressure of the town's pride and honor riding on their shoulders as a new season kicks off.
