Watch This! Get coached in movie etiquette the ‘Friday Night Lights’ way

Kyle Chandler as Coach Taylor in Friday Night Lights

The Alamo Drafthouse makes the best “Don’t Talk” pre-show reminders for their cinemas. They also release them to the web, where they’ve gathered quite a following.

Their latest, however, is a whole production that pays tribute to the locker room speeches of Kyle Chandler’s Coach Taylor in Friday Night Lights (the TV show, not the movie).

If that makes you nostalgic for the show, Netflix has the entire series. And if you’ve never seen it… maybe you want to give it a try and queue it up.
