Aside from the lame love stories of our young artists, Nashville is mostly getting back on track. The high drama of the adults is quite engaging, as the fall out from the out-of-control finale still lingers. It’s still not nearly as good as season one, which is due, in a large part, to the faltering music. It’s just not catchy or placed well with in the show. Most of the episodes hold the one or two songs until the end and they aren’t engaging or only used over a montage. Oh well…
Some Other Thoughts:
- Deacon has been a great character. After his initial struggle in jail and coming back home, I’ve lost interest in him. They’ve side lined his battle with his inner demons for his love story with this lawyer we haven’t been given the chance to feel for, so it detracts from our experience.
- Also, he’s a terrible uncle for not going to Scarlet’s big night at the Bluebird.
- The Avery/Scarlett scenes were lovely. I’ve really enjoyed his transformation.
- Gunnar is the worst. Literally one of the worst characters on TV. They’ve tried to do some much with him, but have half-assed it the whole way. Whether it was attempting to make him a bad boy or an empathic/sympathetic heartbroken artist, it hasn’t fully worked. Is that the writers or the actor to blame?
- I didn’t miss Will AT ALL.
- The Rayna and her sister dymanic is an interesting one that I’m excited to see play out, even if we know how it’s going to end.
- Oh Juliette… always getting into trouble. Blah. I’m over her shenanigans, but I’ll hold out for this story line and see what the writer’s do with the wife’s discovery.
- I. Don’t. Care. About. Zoey.
Keep on Watchin’!
