Blogging A to Z: Tami Taylor

Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! All month long we'll be creating posts for each letter of the alphabet according to a theme. Click here to see the list of participating blogs.

My theme is Memorable Characters featuring characters from books, movies, and TV.

Tami Taylor

From: Friday Night Lights (TV series)

Known For: TV Mom Hall of Fame, That Hair

Being a coaches wife in a small town that worships football can't be an easy gig. Tami and Coach Taylor often struggle with those dynamics, with Tami living in her husband's shadow, but her commitment to her family is wonderful to watch. Eventually, the character takes on more leadership roles within the community and school, and the series end (no spoilers) is a heartwarming reflection on how the Taylors work together to support each other. If you haven't watched the series, it's definitely not just about football. It's filmed beautifully and feels very organic. You won't see any TV studio living room sets here. There's a realness to the characters that isn't found often enough on TV.

Who is your favorite TV mom?


  1. I've never seen this show, and can't honestly say it's high on my list of shows to watch. I'm sure it's good, but there's so much to see/read/write, and only so many hours in the day/week/life. :) But Tami sounds like a good character.

  2. Friday Night Lights is next on my list of shows to binge watch on Netflix.

    One of my fave TV moms (minus the last awful season) is Roseanne. The sarcastic, weird, loyal family was something I could relate to growing up :)

  3. Tami Taylor is *definitely* my favourite TV mom. Such a fabulous character in every respect. I will probably emulate her when I eventually have kids. ;-)

  4. i love all your choices - such strong women, and all with flaws that make them admirable for overcoming! so glad you included star wars gals and Rogue! yay!!
    happy a to z-ing!
