The best thing about Netflix's Watch Instantly format is the ability it gives users to finally connect with critically adored TV shows that ultimately checked into the programming graveyard in the midst of more in-the-know friends always fawning over them.
A prime example is Friday Night Lights, a best-show-ever nominee for those wise enough to have stuck with the low-rated series during its five-year run. A group in which we here at Complex definitely fall. Using the trials and tribulations of a Texas high school football team as its backdrop, Friday Night Lights touched upon issues of racism, financial strife, and abortion with poignancy and grace. â€”MB
