For those of a certain baby boomer age, we’ve grown up with Jack Nicholson, from his early days in Roger Corman hippie exploitation flicks like “The Trip” and “Psych-Out,” his roles in the biker movies “Hell’s Angels on Wheels” and his breakthrough, the Dennis-Hopper-directed “Easy Rider.”
Last week—August 28 to be exact—marked the 50-year anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington and delivering his famous “I Have a Dream” speech before 250,000.
“Friday Night Lights” almost didn’t survive its first season. After it debuted on NBC in fall 2006 on Tuesdays, then was relegated midway through to—yep, the graveyard of Friday night at 8 p.m.—the drama about a Texas high school football team was low-rated but critically beloved.
