Reality vs. TV: 'Friday Night Lights'

Real: Based on Buzz Bissinger book about Permian High School football team. Shot in Texas using authentic game footage, uniforms, cheerleaders and fans. Unreal: If only the Texans knew that Taylor Kitsch, a Canadian model, was playing their running back. Cheerleader Minka Kelly thinks she can stop Derek Jeter from bedding half of Manhattan. Verdict: 4/5 Emotionally vulnerable quarterbacks
