I LOVE this show so much! Great scripts, great music (bought the cd because I loved the songs), and great dynamics with richly detailed characters. The cast members are all amazing and so talented- probably the most uniquely entertaining and quality drama to air in a very long time. I am completely addicted.
I sure hope this show is not cancelled. It is my favorite show!! My husband, daughter and I all sit down and watch this one together! Great cast, love the music and the story line!! And I love Rayna and Deacon together!! My daughter (14) is now a country music fan :)
Nashville is one of those shows that you want to root for. It has a great cast, great concept, and a terrible showrunner. For some reason the show has never clicked.... Which is unfortunate because with a cast like this it should be a super hit. I think we may need to say goodbye to Nashville. It will get a second season pickup and possibly abc will fire some writing staff. But, it may be to little too late.
We absolutely love Nashville! We have it set to record on the DVR so we can watch when we have time. It is always the first show on our DVR we watch. We even enjoy the reruns. Great cast and wonderful story. Love love love.... How about a rating beyond a 10!!!
I set aside time every Wenesday night to watch this show!!! I love the singing and the story lines are great ! Makes me want to move to Nashville. I will definately plan a visit. I need more new episodes to watch. Thanks !
this is such a good show. easy to follow I would like to see rayna and deacon together. the harmony of the songs is very good I am not a fan of country but really like all the songs that they sing. well written
I Live in Down town Nashville and have gotten stuck in a 3 hour traffic
jam when they were shooting that video by that 30 foot statue. I like the show however all these tourist are annoying, Good thing they don't know the best bars and I hope They don't or I'm moving back to Chicago. lol But over all I do Like the show even though I am not a county music fan.
I LOVE this SHOW!!!!!!!! I love country music, I love the constant love-hate relationships that are going on, and i love that the characters aren't perfect! Each character seems to have something in their backgrounds that rears its ugly head and perfectly ties everyone together!
I love the anger between Juliette and her mother! I can't wait for the show to go more in depth with their relationship and Juliette's background/rise to stardom!
Nashville has a great cast. It has been promoted well. It debuted far above the other new shows of the time slot-- Chicago Fire and Arrow. However, the dialogue speaks too much of irrelevant dramaticism and soapy sentimentality. I stopped after the pilot.
I LOVE THIS NEW SHOW, I AM A BIG COUNTRY MUSIC FAN AND THIS SHOW HAS LOTS OF IT, I LOVE THE STORY AND THE ACTORS, I CAN'T WAIT TO TUN IN EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT, KEEP UP THE GOOD DRAMA AND MUSIC, IT IS A BIG HIT SHOW......I GIVE IT A 10
I'm still watching - the drama is getting a little soapy, but I can see the long story unfolding: unrepentant Juliette must join up with Rayna the Headliner for the tour to make money and to regain her fan base, while they're out on tour, Teddy gets caught bangin his high school flame, yada yada. But then last week I see Deacon stand up to Rayna's Asshat Dad, and then strut out on stage and pull out a classic root-beer Gibson 335, and WOW - that is one beautiful guitar. And this week the Asshat boyfriend plays some very nice backup licks, and their harmonies are very good - the song wasn't the best, but it's actually them singing, so I'm okay with it. don't know how long I'll watch, but I'm still watching now. We all know Connie is a very good actress, but Hayden has really surprised me with her range and believability.
you know from the few Episodes i have seen of this show it's not that bad i mostly like the avery and Scarlett part cause i'm a huge Jonathan Jackson fan it's nice seeing him play a Different roll then other i have seen him on like General Hospital
I watched a coupla episides of this cause being a music fan I enjoy good country music. This show isn't about country, or music.
I strongly suspect most of the players are miming actual musicians who may be less photogenic or don't wanna put the time in to appear in front of the cameras. Acting ability is not a prerequisite for getting a crack on "Nashville" which isn't to say they are all bad actors, just that some of em are.
In particular the blonde who features in the rags to riches waitresss to country star sub-plot.
This is just another soap opera with the usual band of hastily sketched caricature type roles. Must not be surprised when a character does something that feels like its goin against type cause this show has people doin what-ever the plot demands, irrelevant to the perceived character's likely behaviour.
The thing I dislike most about these formulaic parodies of real drama is that after a coupla seasons everyone is painted a shade of grey.
The tyrannical and overbearing tycoon dad has already shown he has a heart buried under scar tissue as the cliche goes. He's not the sociopath that most tycoons are in real life. No this chap empathises alright, he just doesn't let that empathy reveal itself in his behaviour.
Rubbish in other words, about as real as a marzipan dildo, but since many of the people who watch this sort of show can't separate the personality of the character from that of the actor, Hollywood agents insist that their talent gets an opportunity to show a 'nice side' less viewer distaste makes the talent struggle for work in the future.
Similarly the 'nice' peeps, the ones who the viewers like to daydream themselves as inevitably end up doing something outrageously bad. Not because that is what someone who spends their life endeavouring to 'follow the rules' would ever do, but because ratings begun a downward slide and TV producers know that nothing attracts viewers more than the opportunity to take vicarious pleasure in watching a goodie two shoes reveal him/herself to be a real stinkeroo.
And the music? A few over-rated 'blasts from the past' maybe the odd classic interspersed with a really vapid take on modern country. Country music frozen in Fringe style amber.
There was a pilot for another TV show about country musicians called "Outlaw Country" . Is that still a goer or has it been tossed aside in favour of this soapie?
Not that "Outlaw Country" didn't also feature a script driven plot rather than a character driven one, it also had its share of cliches, but I hope it gets another chance. Maybe "Nashville" will inspire the producers of "Outlaw Country" to go for quality drama since the LCD MOR slot has already been filled.
My new favourite show, I hope it is here for good! I'm from Australia so I don't know a lot about the Nashville scene, but the Pilot was great - love the actors, the characters, the inter-connecting storylines and the music.
I'm not a huge fan of Hayden Panettiere but her spoiled brat attitude was spot on. Connie Britton is just a legend and I'll watch anything with her in it!
Love love love it - get on board and support it so it doesn't get cancelled!!
Okay, I'm shocked and horrified. There is nothing about country music that appeals to me, absolutely nothing, and yet I loved this show. I had this on my PUH-LEZ WHAT WERE THEY THINKING List and yet I loved it. I'm lowering my head in shame.
This is kind of a soap opera, but it really gets the music right. The changes in the music scene where Taylor Swift and her ilk are taking over, but what about real country? The ingenue is a perfect b*** but she has mitigating circumstances and is a fan of some old country, for instance the guitar player for the established star's band. Then there is the niece who is a waitress at The Bluebird Cafe who gets up to sing a little something. Wow ! T Bone Burnett did the music and it is pretty good, especially the little ditty from The Bluebird Cafe. T Bone did the music for O, Brother, Where Art Thou? You might have heard of it. This show is a lot like the movie Country Strong. If you liked that, you'll like this. It might be a little bit like Dallas or Dynasty, too.
