Kyle's Career Filmstrip: TV Series and Movies

Naughty and Nice in Television

Nice: Friday Night Lights -- Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton.

• Friday Night Lights’ farewell: There are few moments when a fondly realized series’ farewell occasions feelings of sorrow and reflection. Friday Night Lights ended with a hush, but also with an unrestrained joy and hope for a better future. Think of all the series finales you’ve seen that disappointed you. Then look back on Friday Night Lights’ farewell, with Connie Britton and Emmy winner Kyle Chandler’s Tami and Eric Taylor facing new jobs, new careers and new lives in the big city, after saying their goodbyes and making peace with their small-town rural roots. Friday Night Lights, winner of the 2007 Peabody Award and 2009 and 2011 Humanitas Prize, was always going to be one of television’s most elegant, distinctive family dramas. That it ended on such a dignified, restrained note is only fitting. Fare thee well.
