Nashville Season 1 Episode 5

Rayna really needs to sit back and take a look at her life. She seems so miserable. She wants to do the right thing, but the right thing is not her being unhappy.

She’s still in love with Deacon and Teddy is having an affair. Rayna’s father is worried about Rayna not being completely in the marriage, well at least she’s not cheating.

Deacon and Rayna should be together. It’s so sad that they are not. Rayna definitely loves Deacon more than Teddy. I just wonder why she chose Teddy. Did she think that he was the safer choice?

Rayna is going to find out about Teddy’s affair eventually, especially since there are pictures of them now. What will Rayna do when she finds out?

Juliette has some issues she really needs to deal with. She’s got her mom in rehab now, that’s a start.

As much as I think it’s crazy to up and move and just leave her stuff behind, that might have been the best thing for her, a fresh start.

This might be the beginning of the end of Scarlett’s relationship. I understand that Avery is jealous and upset it wasn’t him, but he shouldn’t sabotage her.

Scarlett has been there for him since the beginning, why can’t he be there for her? If he doesn’t change his attitude he’s going to lose her. I don’t think she’ll chose him over the music.

What did you think of the episode? Leave me a comment.

New TV Shows for the 2012-2013 Season

I’m making my decision on two shows this week and giving the other show one last chance.

666 Park Ave
Network: ABC
Time: Sunday, 10/9c pm
Cast: Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, Robert Buckley, Samantha Logan, Mercedes Masöhn, Helena Mattsson, Vanessa Williams, Erik Palladino, Terry O’Quinn and Teddy Sears

I will go ahead an call it, this is a show you should watch this season. It has drama, it has suspense and it has mystery.

I started out not liking Gavin. I mean the horrible things he does to people, but maybe he’s not so bad after all. And now he’s a victim.

How many ghosts are at play in this show? It’s hard to keep track. I’m surprised Jane can sleep at all.

This show is even starting to get a little scary. That might just be because I’m routing for the characters and the characters are increasingly in danger.

The show is located in the perfect location, Park Avenue. The deals that Gavin makes all come come out of great ambition and that ambition ultimately destroys everyone of them.

Arrow
Network: The CW
Time: Wednesday, 8/7c pm
Cast: Stephen Amell, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Salmon, Katie Cassidy,Willa Holland and Emily Bett Rickards

I was just about to say I would officially add this show to my list, and then Oliver get’s caught. Isn’t it a little early for him to get caught? The show just started.

The action is really good and I enjoyed Oliver getting closer to Laurel through is disguise, but it’s way to early for everyone to find out who his is.

I will give this show an episode or two more and then I will decide if this show is a keeper.

Nashville
Network: ABC
Time: Wednesday, 10/9c pm
Cast: Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Eric Close, Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson and Sam Palladio

This show keeps getting better every week. Ambitions are high and they are doing anything and everything to achieve their goals.

I’m going to call this one as well, this is a show you have to watch.

The music is great, the cast is great and the storyline is great.

There’s three music careers in three different stages and they are all fighting for the same thing, success.

New Shows for the 2012-2013 Season Round 2

We’re further into these new shows and they are starting to take form. So let’s get right to it:

666 Park Ave
Network: ABC
Time: Sunday, 10/9c pm
Cast: Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, Robert Buckley, Samantha Logan, Mercedes Masöhn, Helena Mattsson, Vanessa Williams, Erik Palladino, Terry O’Quinn and Teddy Sears

This show may have had a slow start, but it’s starting to get really good.

It’s very creepy. I wouldn’t call it scary, but I do see the potential. There are a lot of elements at play in this show and I think that’s why it started out slowly. With so much going on the writers took their time to set the story up and they had to. It would be way to confusing to just throw us in the middle of it.

I have no idea where this show is going and it’s refreshing. Each week I feel like it’s going in a different direction. Then I watch another episode and I’m not so sure again.

If you are going to watch this show, start from the beginning, do not jump in at the current episode. I do suggest you watch this show.

Arrow
Network: The CW
Time: Wednesday, 8/7c pm
Cast: Stephen Amell, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Salmon, Katie Cassidy,Willa Holland and Emily Bett Rickards

I still haven’t came to a true opinion of Arrow.

It still feels a lot like Batman. I like Batman though. I like most comic book movies, so it doesn’t mean that I won’t get into this show.

If you’re like me and you watch so many shows to begin with, a show needs to really hook you to get you to add one more to the long list.

This show hasn’t done that yet. Yes it’s exciting and yes it has intrigue, but so do a lot of shows on television. That doesn’t mean I’m going to watch them all.

I always give new shows a chance before I turn them down. I think the most episodes I ever watched before saying no was six. There’s only been two episodes of Arrow, so it still has a chance to impress me yet.

Oliver is just setting up his plan. He’s distancing himself from his family so he can do his work. This is interesting. He’s been gone five years and now that he’s back to civilization he’s cut himself off. I’m liking Oliver’s character so far. The storyline is interesting, I guess I’m just waiting for it to take off.

Maybe that could happen in the third episode, I’ll let you know.

Nashville
Network: ABC
Time: Wednesday, 10/9c pm
Cast: Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Eric Close, Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson and Sam Palladio

I’m absolutely loving this show. I love the characters, I love the story and I love the music. Like I said before I’m not even a country music fan.

Hayden Panettiere is amazing. She really makes you hate her, even when you want to like her. She cries and you still hate her.

Juliette is definitely an ambitious girl.  She wants to sell millions of records, but she also wants to make good music. Might be a little conflicting with what her producers are trying to do, but I like that she wants to make quality music.

This is why I feel like her character goes deeper than just a diva. I am really enjoying getting to know Hayden’s character.

Connie Britton is also outstanding. She’s the star we all want to be friends with. She does have a little diva in her, but she’s a genuinely nice person too.

Rayna is dealing with a lot of change. In the music industry, in her career and with her home life.

There’s so much  good chemistry in this show. The producers really put together an amazing cast.

New TV Shows for the 2012-2013 Season

Last year I took a look at a few new shows for the new season. There are so many new shows each season and it can be hard to decide which ones to try out, especially if you already watch a lot of shows. I will follow these shows for the next few weeks and let you know if they are worth watching. Here are just some of the many shows that are premiering this season:

666 Park Ave
Network: ABC
Time: Sunday, 10/9c pm
Cast: Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, Robert Buckley, Samantha Logan, Mercedes Masöhn, Helena Mattsson, Vanessa Williams, Erik Palladino, Terry O’Quinn and Teddy Sears

I wasn’t so sure about this show at first. There’s so many characters that it was hard to connect with any of them in the first two episodes. By the third episode, I’m starting to get interested.

There’s a hidden secret at The Drake. We know there’s a lof of dead people involved, but the actually secret is unclear.

The secret isn’t enough to keep you hooked though.

Terry O’Quinn’s character, Gavin, is a big part of the secret. He has some sort of power. You can make a deal with him and he can give you anything you want, but it’s like you’re selling your soul to the devil.

In the pilot episode there’s a violinist that isn’t very good, but Gavin makes him the best. Gavin comes to him and says it’s time to settle up. The violinist ends up getting sucked into the wall of The Drake. This sounds very much like the crossroads demon in Supernatural, so I wasn’t impressed.

In the second episode there’s a women who has very bad luck with men and Gavin sets her up with someone. She sleeps with him before he tells her that he’s married. She ends up killing him. Apparently this is not the first man she’s killed in rage. She’s a very old woman, who just looks like she’s young. We haven’t been given the reasoning behind this yet though. This was a little more interesting.

In the third episode, there’s a journalist that whatever she writes, Gavin makes come true. She writes for the obituary section at the local paper. She creates a story about a deceased guy saying that he was an American hero. She then is asked to write a follow up story about the man and she creates a very scary man. Who end up breaking into her her apartment and is getting ready to torture her with the murder kit she created. This was more interesting.

None of these little stories are apart of the main storyline.

Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable play the two main characters: Jane and Henry. They are a poor couple who get an amazing chance to manage The Drake and with doing so get a very nice apartment. Jane is researching The Drake to help with restorations and she is uncovering the secret of The Drake bit by bit.

By the third episode I feel like I’m getting to know Jane and Henry now. With so many characters it’s hard to get to know everyone.

My position on the show right now is you should watch the first couple of episodes and by the third you should be getting interested. I will keep you posted if this show continues to intrigue me.

Arrow
Network: The CW
Time: Wednesday, 8/7c pm
Cast: Stephen Amell, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Salmon, Katie Cassidy,Willa Holland and Emily Bett Rickards

So far this show seems like a classic comic book story. That could be a good thing, it’s just too early to tell.

The pilot set a lot up for the sereis.

Stephan Amell’s character Oliver was stranded on a deserted island for five years after his boat got caught in a storm. His dad and ex-girlfriend’s sister both died. He managed to survive and return home, but a different person. He is now on a mission for justice. Apparently his dad told him about some corrupt men and these are the men that Oliver is attacking. He has become Arrow.

There is a lot more death in this show then I am use to on television. In other shows that I’ve watched there are the deaths that come as a shock or like in Supernatural there’s always an innocent killed for them to start a case. In shows like Grey’s Anatomy patients die. I lost count of how many people died in only the first episode of Arrow. That’s more violent than I was expecting, at least from a TV perspective. If this show was a film then I would have expected it.

Not only is there a lot of action and mystery in the show, there’s also a love interest. Katie Cassidy plays Laurel, Oliver’s ex-girlfriend. Oliver is still in love with her, but Laurel is kind of seeing his best friend Tommy, played by Colin Donnell. I’m intrigued to see where this will go.

Arrow has a very Batman feel to it. I never read the Arrow comics, so this is coming from a very fresh perspective. Arrow is a playboy who’s returned home a changed man. Society still sees him as a playboy while he’s doing good in secret, though Batman didn’t kill people on his mission. Arrow is in love with an estranged friend who is a lawyer. Anything sounding familiar yet?

There was a lot packed into the first episode. Is the whole series going to be the same?

Nashville
Network: ABC
Time: Wednesday, 10/9c pm
Cast: Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Eric Close, Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson and Sam Palladio

There hasn’t been many shows that have gotten me hooked in the first episode.  Many shows have intrigued me in the first episode,  but not made me want to add them to my DVR right off the bat.

Nashville is amazing. Connie Britton’s character, Rayna, is starting a new phase in her life. She’s a country sensation, but country music is heading in a different direction, fabricated country. The joys of autotune.

Rayna now has to compete with Hayden Panettiere’s character, Juliette. Juliette makes music that sells, but doesn’t have the talent of Rayna.

While Rayna’s career is changing, her husband, played by Eric Close, is running for mayor. She now has to stand on the sidelines for her husband, Teddy. He’s been there for her over the years and now it’s her turn.

Juliette knows she’s popular, but I’m not sure if she knows that she lacks the tallent of Rayna.

There is more than meets the eye to Juliette and Hayden does a good job in portraying that. I’m use to seeing Hayden in innocent roles, but this is no innocent role.

Nashville has original music and I’m not a country fan, but I enjoyed the music. I look forward to the second episode.
