Deconstructing the Decade

Zap2it Rick's Favorite Episodes of the Decade:

"Mud Bowl" ("Friday Night Lights")

The first season of "Friday Night Lights" may have been among the most beautifully executed seasons on all of television in the '00s (and certainly on network TV). "Mud Bowl" was the show at its best, both for the football side of things -- after a chemical spill shuts down the school, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) moves a key playoff game to a cow pasture, and we get a ton of great game action -- and the personal stories the show does so well: Tyra (Adrianne Palicki) fighting off her attacker, Coach and Tami (Connie Britton) getting frisky in the pasture a couple days before the game. Just a brilliant episode.

We love Mud Bowl. But please check out Season 4 ... it is on par with Season 1.
