Friday Night Lights

11 ‘Friday Night Lights’ moments we’ll never forget

Thank the Netflix gods for the ability to re-watch Friday Night Lights whenever the mood to see Tim Riggins’ hair blowing in the wind strikes.

Okay, okay. Yes, we know there is a lot more to the show than #33. The series gave us one of the best, most realistic married couples we’ve seen on television, along with some truly incredible friendships, and it somehow mastered the perfect balance between heartbreaking and heartwarming. There are about 1,001 moments that we love to look back on, but here are 11 Friday Night Lights moments that no fan will ever forget.

5 TV shows we wish would make a comeback

Fuller House is back on Netflix, and Gilmore Girls is all hopped-up on caffeine to make its imminent return. It seems that more and more networks are jumping on the nostalgia bandwagon and bringing back old television shows rather than pitching new plots.

So we figured: Why not let our imaginations run rampant and dream up what would happen if some of our favorite shows returned to our screens? Take note, television executives!

5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Although the canon continued into season eight and nine in comic-book form, let’s pretend for a moment that we’re picking up after the final showdown in the season seven finale.

Likelihood of happening: 4/10. Although we’ve not seen much from Nicholas Brendon (no, mugshots don’t count), the other lead actors from this series have been busy since the show left our screens in 2003. (No, we can’t believe it’s been 13 years either!) After stints on The Ringer and The Crazy Ones, Sarah Michelle Gellar will be soon returning to small screens on NBC’s televised sequel to 1999’s Cruel Intentions, so we can assume she’ll be a little preoccupied being the original cruelest bitch of them all.

Relationship role models: 11 TV couples that made us believe in love

Many of TV’s most popular pairings aren’t exactly good examples of healthy romantic relationships. While we all love watching the Buffy and Angels and the Ross and Rachels of the world, I doubt many of us strive to be part of a couple with so many ups and downs.

Here, the EW Community takes a look at the best relationship role models on TV. While their journeys may not be too tumultuous, they all helped us believe in love—in a medium that often draws entertainment from excessive relationship drama.Read More

Books to TV: The good, the bad, and the ugly

From Game of Thrones to Pretty Little Liars, some of the best TV shows were books first. In some cases, the show far exceeds the success of the book it was based on. Then there are the TV shows that never compare to the books they were derived from. The EW Community looked at six different shows that were books first, and determined whether they were better, worse, or just as good as their book counterparts.
