Friday Night LightsFriday Night Lights, After five seasons, NBC / DirecTV ‘s Friday Night Lights is dismissed for good on Friday with a prolonged episode in which the Lions, led by quarterback Vince Howard (Michael B. Jordan) at the head of state. The critically acclaimed series, which has struggled to attract viewers and ended up being saved by DirecTV at a time, the first of its kind, distribution agreement, has been praised for its realistic portrayal of marriage, family and football Texas American.

On the eve of the FNL series finale, here are five things that Jordan lost the Texas-set drama.

1. The cast. Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton and Lions teammate Matt Lauria, the series has always been about family – on and off the field, behind and in front of the cameras. “[Vince] needed a person as the father in your life so bad, so he and Coach Taylor (Chandler) eventually ended up getting along so well. … Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye to some members of the cast – takes nothing away from the people I’ve worked in the past and I will work in the future – but Friday Night Lights, I’m a little biased, “says Jordan. “It’s one of the best models I’ve worked and I’m going to lose.”

2. Texas forever. While the FNL has been praised for its authentic portrayal of marriage and family, the series is still very real for the community of Texas, often with local businesses – like the runway, among others – in the series. “You get more fans that love the show, football fans, the people of Texas – that use a lot of local shops to mom and dad do not care elsewhere,” says Jordan. “We are a real show from start to finish. That’s what the screen means that the authenticity.”

3. Doing his own stunts. Jordan, who grew up an athlete, says she never had the chance to play on a big stage and have the opportunity to lead the Lions as a quarterback scenes and film in a high stage of the game was “crazy “. “The feeling I had commanded men on offense and be the quarterback and throw it all myself and how everyone … Vince told me at that time was something I will never forget,” he recalls. “That day we had a record number of extras for the show in September and crowded. Never forget that moment … I felt like I was a gladiator in the Colosseum.”

4. There are no markings. Part of the gritty authenticity FNL was the way the series was filmed – the actors have the freedom to do what felt good for the scene. “We had no marks on Friday Night Lights,” says Jordan. “In our program, it was so dirty in terms of camera movement. … There was very little red tape that could not cross and we could go anywhere. Our whole world was ours and we could move and what we felt good. That really does not happen often in Hollywood. ”

5. Food. The shooting in Texas also meant being completely rooted in culture, including the kitchen. “We had some of the best barbecue all the time,” says Jordan. “I’m a fan of the food and be in Austin, Texas, and the steaks and barbecue all the time … I’m going to miss that.”
