Friday Night Lights: Saying goodbye but not yet
Some fans of "Friday Night Lights" -- the ones who have been watching season five on DirecTV, where the show ended its run last night -- are waking up today knowing how the Dillon, Tex., drama ends. And they are undoubtedly feeling a measure of sadness that it's all over.
The rest of the "Friday Night Lights" fans? They also know it's over, but that the end for them won't begin until NBC airs the final season, beginning April 15. It's a bit like getting news of someone's tragic death, but not attending the funeral until a few months later.
Personally, I've managed to remain completely season-five spoiler-free. I have intentionally not read a single recap, nor have I accidentally stumbled upon any major plot developments from the last batch of episodes. In the Internet age, that's a minor miracle. And for the next two months, I plan to keep it that way.
So along with the fellow "Friday Night Lights" fans for whom the end doesn't come until this spring, I say goodbye to a great show. But I'll save the real, final farewell for later.
