Of course there will be another way for fans to watch. In a relatively bizarre move, the DVD release of FNL's final season will happen on April 5, a full ten days before the network broadcast premiere. That means Dillon devotees—like us—will be able to purchase and bulk-watch the final season before it even airs on NBC.
Why is this the preferable Friday Night Lights strategy? Because it seems worth $30-plus to watch FNL in one fell swoop than spread out over nearly three months. Isn't your time—and FNL fanboy-and-girl craziness—worth a little change?
