It was weird. The show waits until the end of the season to show a bunch of game footage. And did it have to be the cliché “we’re down by four touchdowns at halftime, let’s go win it cause we have heart” type scenario?
Since it was a finale, I would’ve liked to see the team come up just short and have something to grow from. I guess they did go through enough this season, but it seems next year all they’ll have to handle is a new coach and being “targets.”
The real drama will come from the Taylor household. I wonder if next year (NBC did ask for scripts for more episodes) will start in the off-season or at the start of the fall football season.
I’m really torn on the finale. I liked how it tied up the personal conflicts like Tyra and Lila, Street and his disability and the Taylors. OK, not the Taylors. It’s still the best drama NBC has right now so I’m not going to complain too much. They could misconstrue it as me not liking the show. I do, I really do. Go Panthers!
