20 Greatest Pilots Since 2000

5 – FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS (NBC, October 3, 2006) “Pilot”
Often overlooked and criminally underappreciated throughout its five-year run, Friday Night Lights will still go down as one of the best TV dramas of all time. And not because of plot ploys or groundbreaking storylines, but because it's one of the most realistic depictions of family life ever attempted on screen. The pilot's subtle introduction of the core characters is achieved within the first five minutes of being thrown into this seemingly complex, but very real world. At first glance, the show is be about high school football in Dillon, Texas, but more importantly, it's about the family and community dynamic that goes along with it. Coach Eric Taylor and his wife Tami (brilliantly played by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton) face real-life struggles that are beautifully crafted within the show's first episode. It was smart. It wasn't a gimmick. And it sucked us all into that locker room every week. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose, ya'll. - Sharon Tharp
