Sorry, grew up there, knew lots of performers, stars, and their children. Nashville just isn't like this. They fall all over themselves to help each other.
Hell, by strong tradition most of them keep their careers alive by constantly covering each other's songs and the more successful would often do duets with the lesser stars to give them a boost.

I liked it too -- the more unreal and soapy it got, the more I liked it. Rayna's husband going from unemployed dunce to major mayoral candidate just because her J.R. daddy snaps his fingers? Ridiculous, but I'd watch it for those sorts of plots. Connie Britton is excellent and there's some male eye candy.
The one plotline I hope they ditch quick is the waitress and her troubadour boyfriend -- it was too much like "Treme" and that song was heinous (made worse by the fact that their songwriting was supposed to be some sort of genius; it sounded like cats yowling over an old Cowboy Junkies album).

Sorry, didn't find Britton's character all that sympathetic. She dismisses the younger singer because *she* doesn't like her music and is pissy when her mentor tells her the younger singer is here to stay. Also she's a rich girl who puts her head in the sand about her father helping her when she started out in the business and she apparently is passing off one of her daughters from another man as her husband's kid. To top it off, when push comes to shove she abandons her promise to appear at her friends announcement of a mayoral run to stand by the husband she insists is stupid to let her father manipulate into a run for mayor himself.
Hayden's character on the other hand is already developing the 'abused and used by a drug addict mother' history that will soften all of her edges (like sleeping with two different men in the first episode ....one who already has a girlfriend, as well as being bitchy to 'the star' and trying to steal her lead guitar player ....who will also probably end up in her bed).
Overall, the soapy aspects of the show will outweigh the country music background (of which, I am NO fan...)

This is not a thread about a documentary. It's also not a thread titled "Give us your (at least 30 years outdated) opinions about the city of Nashville and the country music industry."
This is a thread about a nighttime show-biz soap starring one of the most widely acclaimed TV actresses of her generation, who is coming off another show created by a powerful gay man.

I don't think you understand my point. I still don't understand why I have to explain this, because it's ridiculous to have to explain why this show would be of interest on Datalounge.
And I don't give a shit what you might think of Ryan Murphy. My point is that he's a high-profile gay man in the entertainment industry and some people here follow his work. I am certainly not alone in those who watched the first season of AHS and absolutely fell in love with Connie Britton. Of course I want to see what she's going to do next, and I discovered her because of Ryan Murphy. Someday, I'm even going to go back and watch Friday Night Lights just to see her.
[quote]And I would love to hear about how open and accepting Nashville and the country music industry are, so please share some anecdotes with us.
I work in the music industry. Not country music entirely, but it's a part of my job. I'm not saying Nashville is the most accepting place, because it's not. But things have changed a lot, even in the past 10 years. For one, both country and CCM (both headquartered in Nashville) are CRAWLING with gay people. They're not as open as they are in other parts of the industry, but they're there.
Perhaps you've heard of Garth Brooks? He is an outspoken supporter of gays, going way back to the early 90s. Carrie Underwood recently spoke in support of gay marriage. Wynonna Judd and Martina McBride are both pro gay. Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton are both outspoken gay supporters. Toby Keith - who, yes, is a total asshole - was a registered democrat as recently as the last presidential election and just last year spoke in support of gay marriage. Tim McGraw is a democrat who is most likely going to run for office (and win) at some point in the next decade.
Is that enough for you? Can we have permission to discuss this show without nasty cunts sniping at us?

Nashville, the best-reviewed new drama of the fall, premiered to solid ratings Wednesday night, while The CWâs new action-drama Arrow set a record for the network.
ABCâs country music drama delivered 9 million viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49. Thatâs enough to win the hour in the adult demo, topping CBSâ CSI (10.6 million, 2.6) and the premiere of NBCâs new series Chicago Fire (6.4 million, 1.9). But Nashville was down 15 percent from the launch of Revenge in this slot last year. NBCâs fire-fighting drama was largely panned by critics and had a disappointing launch, down 21 percent from the debut of Law & Order: SVU in this slot last fall. (Nashville averaged a score of 84 on Metacritic while Chicago Fire had a 49).
Yet hereâs something interesting: Of the three dramas in the hour, the Connie Britton series had the weakest audience retention from its first half to its second. Chicago Fire didnât shed any of its demo rating between its half hours â which is pretty rare for a show premiering this late at night. Nashville may have a bigger rating, but Chicago Fire did a better job of keeping viewers in their seat.

I'll let you in on something: every TV show, movie, book, song, or piece of art is somehow tied to a Republican. Unless you throw out your TV everything you watch benefits at least one person who votes Republican. While you are at it stop attending movies, listening to music, reading, etc. That'll teach Republicans! See how ridiculous it is to slam a stupid, fluffy TV show?

[quote]Nashville has been a Democratic stronghold since at least the end of Reconstruction. While local elections are officially nonpartisan, nearly all of the city's elected officials are known to be Democrats. At the state level, Democrats hold all but two of the city's 10 state house districts and all but one of the city's four state senate districts. Pockets of Republican influence exist in the wealthier portions of the city, but they are usually no match for the overwhelming Democratic trend in the rest of the city.
[quote]Democrats are no less dominant at the federal level. Over the past 100 years, Democratic presidential candidates have carried Nashville/Davidson County in four out of five elections. Normally, Democrats carry Nashville at the presidential level with relatively little difficulty, even in years when they lose the state as a whole.In the 2000 presidential election, Al Gore carried Nashville with over 59% of the vote even as he narrowly lost his home state. In the 2004 election, John Kerry carried Nashville with 55% of the vote even as George W. Bush won the state by 14 points. In 2008, Barack Obama carried Nashville with 60% of the vote even as John McCain won Tennessee by 15 points.

You bitches are being fucking RIDICULOUS with all this "I'm boycotting the show because country music is so Republican and Christian" bullshit. R37 has it *exactly* right: "Nashville" is no more or less "Republican" than "Dallas," and none of you bitches have ever complained about "Dallas" (either the new or old series) on *that* basis, have you? Worse still, Tennessee brought us Al Gore; Texas (and, more specifically, Dallas) brought us George W. Bush!
Even *more* worse, "Dallas" has always been -- original show and current one -- overtly political. Cliff Barnes was the Dallas County D.A. in the old series; Sue Ellen is running for governor in the current one (and although they haven't stated it specifically, it's a given that she's running as a Republican). On the new show, Sue Ellen *already* sold out and offered a political position in her administration as a bribe (head of the Texas Railroad Commission, which contrary to its name has almost nothing to do with railroads; it regulates the oil & gas industry in the state, and its commissioner is one of THE most powerful people in Texas short of the governor and lieutenant governor) to get her son out of hot water!
In any event, NEITHER show is an actual reflection of the cities they're named after. Nashville, as noted, is solidly Democratic, and it has a hell of a lot more going for it than country music. Dallas is *also* Democratic, and has been for quite a while now, plus anyone who knows Texas can tell you that the state's oil industry is almost entirely centered around Houston, not Dallas.

Shows should be careful with raising expectations so much with "best drama of the season" etc... "role of a lifetime." then you go in expecting something and it never lives up to the hype. I realize in a pilot there is a lot of exposition but some of the dialogue and acting was really atrocious. If it is going for camp it really has to go for it. it was too middle of the road in the tone and came off as very mediocre. Connie is a great actress but i wasn't buying her in this role. I don't know HP's other work, but here she was laughable at times. it was just sloppy overall. Needs more edge.

I know exactly what r95 is taking about. It needs to decide what it is. It's in the same tone of camp like Revenge but it seems terrified to go that far. The reason Revenge is successful is because it knows what it is and isn't afraid to be it. Nashville tries to be All About Eve but lacks the bite in writing and acting. Based on Callie Khouri's movies, I'm not sure how it gets better as she writes (unsuccessfully) earnest plots.
Nashville has no edge and seems toothless. It will be off the air in a season if it doesn't adjust because right now it's way too earnest and boring. The acting or writing isn't good enough to support boring.

Two episodes in and I surprisingly I think this is the new fall show that I most like...at least so far.
I'm no fan of Hayden Panettiere as an actress and the character that she plays was pretty despicable last week. But what a turnaround I now feel about her after this episode. My sympathy grew for her during the hour and she really had me when Chip Esten called Connie Britton to join him on stage for that fine duet instead of her. Now I'm looking forward to meeting her junkie whore mama.
The character Gunnar (of Gunnar and Scarlett) is the only one so far that I've sort of thought might be gay or bi. But that was only based on a lingering look he gave one of the other guys in the premier, and it's probably just wishful thinking on my part.

Saw it for the first time last night and was very disappointed with how dull, not fun it was. The music sucked and Connie Britton isn't believable as a singer, the main focus song was just okay and she sounded like shit. The acting and writing are boring. This year's Pan Am.

Like I said last week, Hayden is definitely getting the 'love to hate' edit with her character being 'so wounded', so often. Thus far in each episode, Connie Britton's character has said something insulting to her (not that her character can't give as well as she gets).
Between this week's 'boo hoo sadness' about Deacon treating Juliet badly the whole episode and next week's 'junkie mama drama', she's not being written as the pure villain here.
And Eric Close's character is starting to get the secret evil fella writing so that Reina and Deacon can reunite at some point.
Those two new signing/songwriting partners are a snore.
I thought it was interesting also that Juliet is being portrayed as a decent songwriter herself.
Question --- Did Deacon fuck Juliet or not ? They cut away when he shucked his shirt and headed into the water with her. I guess he got that $ 50K guitar for more than just possibly joining her tour (and the bastard didn't even call her to thank her).

R112 ... actually Juliet was with two people in the pilot episode. One was the waitress's boyfriend (showed her dry humping him on the sofa) and the other one was her record producer (not Deacon), whose bed she was in while Reina was bad mouthing her. He was also the one she rebuffed when he showed up at her place unannounced while she had that waitress's boyfriend waiting on her sofa for his dry hump.
So == Deacon/Juliet boning is not a definite. Although she seems slutty enough and was 'wounded' enough at the bar that she probably fucked him and expected to be called up to sing 'their song'.

Second episode just intensified my feelings about the first.
Pump up the juicy family drama and the rivalry. For God's sake, lose the boring Blue Bird Cafe young couple. I respect T-Bone Burnett, but the music so far must have been pulled out of his bottom drawer after being rejected by everyone in Nashville.
The most unrealistic aspect to me is how both women's characters just sort of bop around Nashville like upper-middle-class housewives. No assistants, and in HP's case, no bodyguard and driver. She's supposed to be some sort of cross between Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, and she can pop in and out of little music clubs with no one paying attention?

R122, I lived in Nashville for a number of years. It's not uncommon there to see celebrities in stores and doing other normal activities. They don't get the attention of paps and the people who live around them are used to seeing them. People might do a double-take but that's about it.

I used to live in Nashville and stars really do just go to the grocery, mall, Starbucks, etc, all by themselves with no entourage or manager or assistant. During my brief time there I saw Nicole & Keith, Brad Paisley & Kim Williams, John Rich, all the Judds separately, Billy Rae & Miley Cyrus, Martina McBride, Vince Gill & Amy Grant, Alan Jackson, the model Nikki Taylor, and a bunch of second tier folks.

I think Connie has an uphill struggle with the character she's playing, who's coming across as a bit of an entitle madam, who, now that her star is fading, doesn't like any of the options in front of her, so is lashing out at those around her, rather than sucking up at least one of the not-so-great options.
At the moment, Hayden is doing a better job of making her character likeable, but I think the writing is helping her more than it's helping Connie.

They need to give Connie Britton something interesting to do -- and just fucking drop the Bluebird Cafe couple; their story is incredibly boring and their songs are awful. If Connie is supposed to be the Reba-ish queen of Nashville, why aren't we hearing her sing?
Hoping that things get much juicier and soapier when the two women go on the road.

I hardly remember Heroes now. It really shows how downhill it went, considering for about a half a season it was my favorite show and a bunch of us would discuss it on Tuesday. I thought Hayden showed signs she might be develop into a decent actress even back on Heroes. She was better than a lot of young ingenues networks try to force down your throat. The problem I had with her back then was not her acting, but the fact that her character was eating the show. Other storylines faded so they could focus on the blonde cheerleader. That, and I don't think they knew where to go with the show after the first season, and they also overused Sylar, a character who probably should not have made it into the second season (he is reformed - no he is evil - no he is misunderstood - no he is evil...).

OK - the lead woman, she needs to just fuck Deacon, the mousy poet singer needs to fuck the big tooth singer and dump the punk country boyfriend.
My bet is the season ends with them all agreeing to a big tour, and the credits roll over a massive tour bus gangbang including some hot lesbo action between Rayna, the new starlet and the mousy poet singer girl. Maybe some homo action too with Deacon and Whitey. Oh and Rayna's dad, Coach, will be blowing anyone through a gloryhole.

Sorry to say I agree. I thought there would be more about Connie Britton's character being angry she was way over the hill at 45 or whatever. Instead she's kind of blank and just... reactive to everything around her.
And the political subplot is a nothingburger. Her husband is running for mayor of Nashville -- which has got to be intense and time-consuming -- and he's just sort of drifting in and out of the house?
Hayden P. is very good. It really shows when you compare her with all the other younger characters, who are incredible bores. She's the star of the show at this point.

Disagree about Britton's performance. She's underplaying it and she's great. But the scripts do need to up the soapiness a little.

"Good news for fans of the late-season start drama “Nashville” which airs on ABC. The show has been picked up for a full season run. The announcement came from ABC on Monday, Nov 12 and comes as a relief to fans. The show had garnered “soft” ratings but saw an 11% increase in ratings last week, bringing it to a 2.0 for adults in the 18-49 rating group.
“Nashville” stars Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere as the shows antagonists, two rival country music stars, one in the twilight of her career and the other just beginning. The soap opera style drama waited two weeks to start because of presidential debates and struggled to find a following at first.
With a little help from DVR viewing, “Nashville” is in the number 1 slot for adults 18 to 49 in the Wednesday 10 p.m. time slot. It is also rated as one of the top 3 new TV series in the adults 18-49 group."

It's not just you, r211. I totally agree.
There are only 3 things that keep me tuning in each week. 1. The music 2. Sam Palladio who plays Gunnar (I want him in my bed) and 3. Jonathan Jackson. (whom I wouldn't kick out of bed either)
I also think Eric Close's character is beyond boring.
By the way, they're releasing a soundtrack on Dec 11.

The song that ended the last episode was the first one that sounded like modern commercial Nashville. Like it or not, you could imagine Reba McIntire and Carrie Underwood having a hit duet with it.
I know T-Bone Burnett does the music, but up till now it's all sounded like Rosanne Cash/Austin City Limits/NPR-style country. Which is all fine, but it's a niche, not what drives the modern country music industry.
Things are picking up a little, but Connie Britton's home life is still as dull as her McMansion and the sensitive blonde singer-songwriter is even more teary and grating and whiny than ever. If this comes back for a second season, I hope they dispatch her to Austin or something.
And I would love to see a true country matriarch singer in the cast -- someone of Tammy Wynette or Loretta Lynn's generation. It would nicely offset Connie Britton as Reba/Martina and Hayden P. as Carrie/Taylor Swift.

Those were some pretty low-impact cliffhangers they left us with.
I like how the promo for the second half of the season uses "the tour that will make for great drama" and "cue the fireworks." Both of those are elements this show completely lacks. They shouldn't try to market it like there are going to be bitch fights, because that's not how the show plays.

I wish Gunnar's brother hadn't been brought on just to be killed, too, R338. I love David Clayton Rogers, and if I were a casting agent, I'd put him in a lead role whether he offered me a blow job or not.
But I also love Scarlett. It's amazing what she does with her southern accent given she's Australian.
And yes, R340, it was HOT. We can only dream about Gunnar being into it, I guess. I wonder where they'll go from here.
Will is too hot to lose, but they're in the habit of dropping hot guys off a cliff once they've served their plot point (Juliet's almost-husband, Gunnar's brother). But I don't think we've come to the end of Will's story. First, who knew Chris Carmack could sing like that, and second, well, nothing's really resolved yet with Will.

Hot as this may have been, a guy like Will IRL would have handled this way differently than just lunging for the hard kiss -- you've got to go slowly and plant the seed (so to speak) so that the other dude winds up thinking it's *his* idea -- I thought they were going in this direction in the bar scene when Gunnar totally seems like he's crushing on Will, beaming about how great he was on stage and staring at him lovingly -- but it became one more instance of this show rushing a plot point at the expense of plausibility and character development -- in any case, a better way to play the scene would have been if Gunnar had been into it, or confused, or a little into it (especially since it was crosscut with Raina and Deacon), instead of the cliche of the hard pass and then the hard rejection.

I think you misunderstood what I said, R384. I mean I don't really believe the spoiler, as in Gunnar struggling with his sexuality.

I just figured it would be your typical "I'm not gay, I'm in love with my girlfriend, but I'm not homophobic, I want to be your friend and support you through this" kind of thing. I just don't buy Gunnar being gay, sorry. Trust me though.. I hope I'm wrong, because Gunnar being gay would be extremely hot. I just don't see how it can play out that way.

Speaking of Will.. did anyone catch the conversation between him and Gunnar? He said that he got with a friend when he was 17 and his dad threw him out. No wonder he's so messed up.

That said.. we have to think about what's realistic here. I hate to break it to you.. I just don't see any possibility of Gunnar and Will hooking up. Gunnar is clearly straight, though trust me.. I hope I'm wrong, because them hooking up would be hot, if not slightly unrealistic.
I think what will happen is Will sleeping with Scarlett, to suppress his real sexuality, Gunnar will flip shit and they'll have a fall out. Eventually though they'll be friends again, and Gunnar will support Will in his coming out. I think this is a simple coming out story, at least how I see it right now. I do hope it turns into something bigger though, because this storyline has a lot of potential, with the homophobia in the country music business, and him eventually (hopefully) getting a boyfriend and how that affects his dreams of making it big.
Ugh.. I'll be happy as long as he's not killed off in the season finale, and as long as they give him some good material next season.

It does seem like the series switched gears midstream. The first half of the season was very slow and very little happened episode to episode. I did not even understand why Connie Britton had signed on to the show, her character did little to nothing. There was no character development and Rayna/Connie was stuck in neutral. The characters and storylines did not intersect.
The second half of the season changed it up quite a bit. We started to see more interaction among characters, Rayna finally shifted into drive, Charlotte got a lot less whiney and annoying.
The show has definitely picked up steam and is moving in the right direction. I am happy that it has been renewed. I am hopeful that it will continue moving in a positive direction.

The last half of the season has gotten much better, but last night I finally figured out what was bugging me about the whole show.
We're told Hayden P's character performs pop-country junk, while Connie Britton's character is a well-respected singer-songwriter.
But every time Connie Britton sings, it's the same overproduced generic stuff that someone like Taylor Swift sings -- just performed by a middle-aged woman. She's no Martina McBride or Faith Hill. And Britton in concert is a snore. I thought Hayden would be the weakest part of the show, but she's actually the best.
What I'd like to see in Season 2 is a Loretta Lynn/Dolly Parton type country music survivor enter the picture so we have three generations of Nashville women. That would be a hell of a lot more interesting than Scarlet and her boring baby-voiced folk music.

How many songs have any of you bought on iTunes? I've bought Scarlett and Gunnar's duet "If I Didn't Know Better," which I mentioned above, and "Ho, Hey," by Maisy and Lennon. That's it. I kind of like "Wrong Song," though. Maybe I'll buy it next time I iTunes.

I bought the whole cd of the first half of the season. Not that impressed with the songs on the second cd. I really liked Wrong Song, that gets stuck in my head a lot. I also liked "known better" and "no one will ever love you".

They kind of crammed every soap cliché into the last part of the episode: pregnancy, car crash, marriage proposal, etc. But it's still a lot of fun, and I'm enjoying the ride.

Agree with you re. the songs from the first half of the season being stronger, R442, although I feel the show itself has picked up in the second half of the season. I now find it a thoroughly enjoyable guilty pleasure.
However, I cannot STAND the Scarlett character and how 'brilliant' she's supposed to be (that standing ovation at the Opry last episode was ridiculous), or her fucking stupid little girl outfits and babyish voice. I would love that character gone. Even better if that then means Gunnar and Will can get together (I don't care if that would be an unbelievable character re-write for Gunnar - it would be hot).

No big surprise if Connie is unhappy with the show -- because she looks brain-damaged in it. Who'da thunk it that Hayden P would blow her off the screen? That's how you do it, have fun and swing from the fences. Connie is dull, dull, dull in this and it's her own damn fault. Too fucking earnest by half.

Just watched the finale. I thought that Hayden really stole the show. Very emotional performance, especially that last song.
They need to make Carmack a series regular next season. A lot could be done with that character.
The writers really need to rehab Rayna and Scarlett's characters to make them likable. Right now no one is "rooting" for them. They are both boring and whiney.
Eric Close's character should be sent to jail and written off the show, he serves no purpose.

R454, you've got to keep in mind that "Nashville" is simply a night time soap with some excellent music performed by the cast.
Not every character needs to be likable all of the time, character's that do not seem to serve a purpose now, may become pivotable at a later date.

The set up for the next season during Juliette singing "Nothing in this world will ever break my heart again" was one cliff hanger after another.
The knowing look and shake of the head that Will gave to that VGL man makes me want to know him better, the vehicle roll over, the surprise engagement ring, then there was the chit chat wiith the federal investigators and a surprise pregnancy. All that following a murder/suicide and a paternity reveal.
What more could happen DL?
How about Juliette's ex football player boyfriend calling to tell her he has HIV from on the downlow?
Rayna's dad's midget gay lover?
Scarlett's unfulfilled girl urges?

Connie Britton has simply never connected with the role. Her conversational, naturalistic style of acting doesn't fit with this show.

The Connie/Hayden issue is really that there are two shows at war with each other: Connie's is the prestige faux-cable drama that the show started as, Hayden's is the melosoapdrama it turned into. Hayden's show is ascendant, as you could see from the fact that the Scandal-esque finale was written by Khouri herself, so it's no wonder Connie looks depressed. They even had Juliette beat Rayna for the CMA.

Connie Britton's dreary daughters and Scarlett are annoying and most of the men are just dull. Hayden P. is the best thing on the show and they seem to be downplaying her character.

Rayna Jaymes was just about as interesting in a coma as she was all of Season 1.
Gay dude Will nearly kissed the guy that I assume is an ex-boyfriend. Who is that guy? He looks a little like the football player that wouldn't have full on penetration with Scarlett until they got married.
Anyway, Will and that dude ended up alone in the washroom for a couple minutes at a house party.
Will was all "What the hell are you doing here?!?!"
and the dude was all "I heard there was a party. How was I supposed to know you live here?"
Will grabbed the dude's shirt like he wanted to punch him but that quickly changed and was just an inch from turning into an anger-kiss until Will switched back to rage and socked him. Conveniently that was just as Will's new girlfriend walked in the room so Will carried on about how he had to beat him cause the dude was making a pass at him.
Later after the party Will and Gunnar had a conversation where Gunnar called Will a closet-case (which Will angrily denied) and said he doesn't have Will's ability to hide his feelings by hooking up with random chicks the same way that Will does. Gunnar was talking about his feeling for Scarlett though, not his latent feelings for Will (which may or may not exist).

Just saw the last episode. Will's old flame (?) is hot! They should have kissed. I mean.. they nearly did, before Will hit him in the face. Sad to see Will is in such denial, even Gunnar thinks it's dumb. The end really said it all though.. he's not happy hooking up with random girls. He will never be happy playing this charade. The only thing that will help is to be honest with himself. I get that it's a conservative city, and a conservative music scene, but still.. I think he would have it better feel better with himself if he could admit his true feelings.

The episode yesterday was so good! The gays finally got something to do. Juliette was actually compelling too! Imagine that!
There's actually more to this show than meets the eye. They cover some sexist issues and some sexuality issues. It's great that HuffPo found it interesting enough to cover (unlike The Backlot), and even gave them credit for handling important issues, even if everything wasn't equally perfect (the lesbian plot twist was dumb, and they called them out on it, and the gay storyline is clichéd, but still somewhat realistic).
Anyway.. onto the gay storyline. Brent called Will out on his hypocrisy in the elevator. LOVED that! Will is just a sad, pathetic closet case at this point. No wonder Brent prefers love and a real boyfriend, over that mess. I must say though, I did like how Will was totally jealous of Brent and the boyfriend. Also, the fact that he beat those homophobic pricks up means there's still hope. He can tell what's right from wrong, even if he is closeted. He's not homophobic, well.. at least not anymore. He actually stood up for Brent and the bf, because he felt what the homophobic bigots did wasn't right. And you gotta admire that!
I actually like how this storyline is moving ahead, though I do agree with the points made by HuffPo. It's sorta clichéd and done before. Yet it's still oddly compelling, I guess the setting and country music scene just makes it all the more worth watching. Last but not least, I agree with them that the last scene, of Will sleeping with Layla was realistic, but still clichéd and dumb, and I don't think the storyline needed that. They could have just left it after the scene in the elevator. We know Will is playing the ladies man, we have watched it time and time again, and we didn't need to see it this time either. Just my opinion! It was still a good episode though, despite some flaws. It's definitely worth the watch.

I like Avery with Juliette instead of Scarlett the ninny. The problem though is that Juliette in a steady relationship would get boring so I guess they will keep them apart.

[quote]People are talking Emmy for Britton.
She was great in Friday Night Lights but no Emmy for this show, her character is the most boring.

Was the guy Rayna was sleeping with just doing it to get her on the record company's side?

Juliette's still not dead yet? This is a travesty.

Hate the way Will and Brent are never shown physically getting together. Sex is implied but no actual touching. So chickenshit.

R559 Yes, he works for the label and he's Will's ex as well.

Now Will is suicidal because he slept with Brent. The self-loathing aspect of this storyline is not realistic. It is so obviously written by a straight guy/woman.

Will is more interesting than Peggy so if one of them has to die I hope it's her and that's what they're leading us to believe in the previews. But in these situations the previews are almost always misleading.

Was Will thinking of Americus and Novalee when he was by the railroad tracks?

Hayden just got a Golden Globe nom.

Hayden is beautiful in person and chatty too!

Hayden is the real star of this show. Connie's a good actress, but that role is boring and really doesn't demand a lot of her. Hayden gets all the fun stuff (and her singing's not bad either.)

Agreed. Connie has the weakest voice on the show.

r574 - I was referring to the cheezy movie 'Where The Heart Is' starring Natalie Portman. Her ex boyfriend who is a country singer gets drunk and wanders onto the train tracks and gets run over.

Connie has a terrible voice. She's unbelievable as a country icon.

Connie Britton's whole career is shrouded in mystery. How does she get her roles? She seems like a good person, and is an alright actress, but can't she get her famous friends to get her roles that don't make her look bad? (I'm talking about DL fav. Marcia Cross and Lauren Graham, well known, "straight" actresses)

r569, they do it that way in order for us not to see what a butch bottom Will is in bed.

They'd better not kill Will! Chris Carmack's blond hotness is the best thing about this show (other than Hayden Panetierre's essential bitchiness).

R582 I've always liked Connie but she's well regarded in the industry by certain people. Although she doesn't ping she comes across as a bi-sexual or a lesbian judging from her current unmarried status and her "friendship" living with Lauren Graham.

Connie also adopted a baby recently didn't she? I like her, but the soft focus they use whenever Rayna is onscreen is distracting.

I'm grateful I'm unable to perceive things to such a painful degree, R587. It must really get in the way of your being able to enjoy things. I'm like that with sound. If the upper midrange is harsh and grainy, I don't want to hear it. Glad it doesn't affect me visually, as well.
I wish they'd let Will grow his hair in, R584. Chris has one of the most beautiful heads of hair on the planet. I doubt they're going to kill Will off, though. He has way too much story yet to play. I hope the DOA will be Peggy Kenter instead.

R588 not really? Someone pointed it out once, I think here on DL, and I've noticed it ever since. But I'm mostly doing okay!

Connie Britton either nods her head up and down or shakes it side to side whenever she says any dialogue.

There is no soft focus lens for Connie Britton on Nashville. I have a 58" LED TV and Connie's wrinkles are quite obvious. She still looks great, though. Much better than all the Botox queens.
I don't know why people go so far as to make shit up about ageing actresses - it must be some form of projection.
|by Anonymous||reply 591||12/16/2013|
Wrinkles and all, I think Connie is gorgeous. She has a really nice body, too, just how I like them. From everything I've ever heard, she's a truly lovely, kind person. I'm sure that does help her get roles, although I think she and Kyle Chandler did some fine work on FNL together.

I'd never heard, or even heard of, anyone disliking Connie Britton until I read this thread.

I watched for Connie B., then stuck through the first season mostly because Hayden P. was so good.
The more conventionally soapy this show gets, the better it gets. And Connie doesn't fit.
My dream is that they add a REAL grande dame of country for a third generation of bitchiness. If Hayden is Taylor Swift/Carrie Underwood, and Connie is Martina McBride/Faith Hill, we could use a 70ish Loretta Lynn or Dolly Parton type. Especially if the old broad was as mean as a snake and twice as crafty.

Too bad Jessica Lange is planning to retire from TV after next year. She would be perfect on Nashville as a grand dame type country singer.

Connie Britton started off doing off Broadway theater work in New York and somehow she met up with Edward Burns before he made The Brothers McMullen and he cast her in it. She got Spin City a year later. There was gossip that she fell in love with Michael J. Fox and tried to get him to have an affair with her. Heather Locklear was brought onto that show and Connie and a few other castmates supposedly had issues with her and they left the show the next season. Connie had two failed sitcoms after that and she did some indie movies and the Friday Night Lights movie before Peter Berg called her up for the FNL show.

Hayden is good campy, hell-on-wheels fun on the show. Although I bet she's the same in real-life.

Nashville is pure soap opera, but a good one.

r595, as if Lange would be caught dead on this low-rated show. It's on the bubble for cancellation, and the last episode hit an all-time ratings low. So while you're musing about your fantasy cast for the 4th season, there's a good chance there won't even be a 3rd season.

I'm loving Liam. If I were Rayna, I'd be all over that. I know they fucked a couple of times, but she moved on to the redneck singer for reasons I don't understand.
So fucking tired of mealy-mouthed, namby-pamby Scarlett. Bitch, grow the fuck up and put some big girl panties on.
