This wasn’t a story about people with lives of privilege. This wasn’t a story about people who were wealthy or even people who were firmly grounded in the middle class. These were people who were struggling with who they were going to be, what kind of futures they were going to have. They were struggling with the question of, “I might be peaking at 17; these might be the best years of my life.” They were struggling with “Should my world be bigger than Dillon, Texas? Should it be my home forever?” I felt, and this is my particular feeling about it and what I hope will be part of its legacy, is that they’re trying so hard to be better. As many mistakes as Tim Riggins made over the course of those five seasons, you always felt, deep within, he was trying to make his life better, make the life of those around him better, and build a family. I think that for so many of the characters, while they struggled and made mistakes and all of that, deep inside, they were just really trying to make a better life for themselves and the people that they loved. I hope that those kinds of things will be the legacy of the show.
