Kyle Chandler & Connie Britton Visit Our Troops

"Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" in real life.

(WARNING: Contains spoiler.)

"It is an honor to meet these guys," Mr. Chandler said. "Being here gives us a chance to say thank you personally to individual Soldiers and also, hopefully representing the people around us in our communities, to let them know that there are people out there thinking about them."

"Friday Night Lights," based on the book and movie by the same title, is a critically-acclaimed show about a fictional Texas high school football team. The show uses a small-town backdrop to address issues facing modern America, and this upcoming season will include a link to American military members.

There will be a military storyline on the current season of the show, Ms. Britton said. "It's a really powerful couple of episodes. We will have a military funeral on our show this season, and it is a family member of one of our cast members in the show."

Ms. Britton said she hopes "Friday Night Lights" might lift wounded warriors' spirits.

Some Shows Need To Know When To Quit ...

"... But then there is Friday Night Lights."

This review from the Tufts Daily sings the praises of Friday Night Lights. But even more than that, it joins the growing mantra among the Press and the critics ... Both Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton are Emmy worthy for their performances of Coach Taylor and his wife, Tami, together or apart. In fact, this article refers to the oversight as 'a crime."

"The performances, as always, are terrific, especially since the show features so many young actors. Chandler and Britton lead the way as the seasoned veterans, never failing to ignite every scene they are in — together or apart. Chandler is equally adept at playing the tough but respectable coach and the loving husband, and Britton plays wife, mother and skillful school politician flawlessly. The couple’s chemistry is immediately apparent. Their on-screen marriage is realistic and a model of maturity. It is a crime that neither has been nominated for, let alone won, an Emmy award."
