Friday Night Lights: Portrait of a Marriage

"...As many commentators and bloggers have noted, the Taylors' union is one of the best real depictions of a good marriage perhaps in the history of television. There are no sensationalistic storylines involving infidelity, illegitimate children, mistrust, or even just spite. The Taylors truly are a team. They respect each other, and it's the security that they exude and the trust in each other that they display that make this marriage different from most that are depicted on television."

This is an awesome article and explores one big reason why this show is the best show on television! The portrayal of the Taylors by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton is something really special and refreshing (and needed!) on television. It gives hope to the rest of us and a road map of what a good marriage is supposed to look like in terms of commitment and mutual support.
