If you want to watch good soap opera, look no further than last night's episode of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, "The Son." The show aired on DirecTV six months ago, but many fans are seeing it for the first time now on NBC. Last week, Matt learned his father died in Iraq. This week he deals with the aftermath - friends gathering, choosing the funeral package, seeing the body and giving the eulogy. Zach Gilford stepped up his game and played every beat perfectly as the wounded Matt Saracen.
Watch this excellent episode below.
