I am a big fan of the television show Friday Night Lights – not just because it is set in a world that is one of my absolute favorite things, but because it is really a damn good show. The acting is excellent and the scripts are amazing. In the episode I just watched was one of the best moments from this series. Tyra, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks with everything stacked against her, struggles to get beyond her history, and with the help of her often overlooked friend Landry, who absolutely loves her, has been struggling with what to say in her college entrance letter. After much soul-searching, and the help of Landry, she comes up with the perfect college entrance letter.
I could have cut the clip at the end of the letter, but this payoff for the two of them coming together was too good to cut.
