The music on Nashville is one of the best parts of that show. I actually both the music that was on every single episode. Soooo good. I love that the show has turned a lot of people on to country music.
Yes can’t wait for this show to be back.
If you have read enough of this blog, you know I love a red carpet and last night’s Golden Globe Awards carpet did not disappoint. Blush was clearly the color of the night and strapless gowns were all the rage. There were mostly hits and only a couple of misses.
Check out all of my best and worst below.
Raising Hope – This show continues to be so hilarious. I feel like it has gotten better and better as the seasons have gone by. Martha Plimpton and Cloris Leachman continue to deliver the funniest lines.
Hart of Dixie – I can’t even lie. I love this show. It’s so cliché and really not that good but it just make me nostalgic for the WB from the 90’s when Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, 7th Heaven, etc were still on. The love triangle with George and Wade is getting tired. I like her with Wade. She’s so blah with George but Wade keeps her on her toes. This whole Lavon and his ex girlfriend running against each other for mayor is so stupid. I guess they needed another story for Lavon since he has nothing going on with his character except for being the wise friend to Zoe. I will keep watching though.
90210 – Cliche, predictable, overly dramatic; these are all things that describe this show, yet I still love watching it. It’s one of my guilty pleasures. My favorite thing is to do is to yell at the screen at all the plot holes and predict what is going to happen in the episode. This season Dixon is in a wheel chair; Silver is feeling sorry for herself because all her boys left her; Annie has nothing to do but fawn over Dixon; Naomi and Max are married and his friend hates her; Liam is an idiot and being blackmailed by that psycho heffa Vanessa; Navid is trying and failing at being a bad boy; and Adrianna slept with someone else has feelings for him but is staying with Dixon out of pity because he was in an accident. The season just started and it’s already pretty ridiculous. I will stick it out as I have for 4 other seasons.
Arrow – This show is like Batman and Revenge but together. This guy has a list and he’s checking it twice. He also has a lair which he was all set up with computers and other equipment out of nowhere. I know we are supposed to suspend some belief in watching these shows but that part was just a mess. Besides these little annoyances, I liked the show. I feel like I already know where the show is going to go but I like the lead and the different people involved in the story. Not too bad of a pilot. I will keep watching this one and see if it gets better.
Beauty & The Beast – I don’t know about this show. It’s pretty bad; the kind of bad that still makes you watch, like a train wreck. I don’t know why they are calling this show Beauty and The Beast because the beast is not beastly at all. He’s more like the Hulk who only turns beastly when he gets angry. It’s so over dramatic but not in the fun way 90210 is. I think I was laughing for more than half of the premiere episode. Just skip this one unless you are a fan of terrible shows then please by all means continue to watch.
Nashville – It’s fantastic. It’s soapy but smart and beautifully written with amazing acting. I am slightly biased because I LOVE CONNIE BRITTON but even if I didn’t, this is still a great show. Hayden Panettiere is great playing a slutty Taylor Swift-esqe bad girl. Loved her for a long time so I’m very happy that she is back on television. After the premiere, I just see so many places that the show can go. If you were turned off by the Nashville aspect of the show, don’t worry about that there is plenty more there to watch. Give the show a try — unless you hate good tv.
Chicago Fire – I thought this show was pretty good. I felt like I was watching Law & Order when I watched. Turns out it is produced by Dick Wolf, the producer of the Law & Order franchise. It has a good cast. Taylor Kinney who was Mason, Tyler’s uncle, on The Vampire Diaries all kinds of brooding hotness. Jesse Spencer, from House fame, plays the rival to Taylor Kinney’s character. Monica Raymund (Lie To Me) also stars. It was your typical procedural. Nothing spectacular but I’ll continue watching.
The Vampire Diaries – Sucks to be Matt since everyone is just gonna keep telling him they wished he died all season. I use to love Selena (Stephen and Elena) but after a season of them not being together, I’m way over them and hoping for some more Delena (Damon and Elena) this season. I don’t know what happened at the ending of this. It was so weird. I know all will be revealed soon though. Solid return episode and yesssssssssssssss Klaus is back and hopefully to stay.
9/8c – Arrow – CW – Series Premiere. After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell; Hung, Private Practice) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. Back in Starling City, Oliver slowly reconnects with those closest to him, his devoted mother Moira (Susanna Thompson; Cold Case, Kings), beloved sister Thea (Willa Holland; Gossip Girl, The O.C.), and best friend Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell; Pan Am), but struggles with his ex-girlfriend Dinah “Laurel” Lance (Katie Cassidy; Gossip Girl, Melrose Place), who blames him for her sister’s death. Oliver has brought back many new skills from his time on the island and despite the watchful eye of his new bodyguard John Diggle (David Ramsey; Dexter, Blue Bloods), Oliver manages to secretly create the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family and fight the ills of society. As Arrow, Oliver will atone for the past sins of his family while he searches for the personal redemption he needs.
10/9c – Chicago Fire – NBC – Series Premiere. When a fire claims one of their own, there’s plenty of guilt and blame to go around. Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer; House), in charge of the Truck, tries to carry on, but butts heads with the brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney; The Vampire Diaires) of the Rescue Squad – and each blames the other for their fallen team member. Adding to the turmoil, Casey, unbeknownst to his colleagues, is in the midst of a separation from Hallie (Teri Reeves, Three Rivers).
10/9c – Nashville – ABC – Series Premiere. Chart-topping Rayna James (Connie Britton; Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story) is a country legend who’s had a career any singer would envy, though lately her popularity is starting to wane. Fans still line up to get her autograph, but she’s not packing the arenas like she used to. Rayna’s record label thinks a concert tour, opening for up-and-comer Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere; Heroes, Guiding Light), the young and sexy future of country music, is just what Rayna needs. But scheming Juliette can’t wait to steal Rayna’s spotlight. Sharing a stage with that disrespectful, untalented, little vixen is the last thing Rayna wants to do, which sets up a power struggle for popularity.
If you have followed this blog for any amount of time, you know I love television. You also know I LOVE FALL TELEVISION. The air begins to cool down, Starbucks brings back their pumpkin spiced flavor and all of my favorites and potential favorites come back from their summer hiatus. It’s the most magical time ever.
So here I’m going to wax poetic on what returning shows I am looking forward to as well as what new ones I hope are as good as their trailers seem.
Season 5 is going to be amazing. Season 4 ended with the writers giving the fans what they have wanted for 4 long seasons and they definitely did not disappoint. Season 5 will start with the morning after of Castle and Beckett getting together as well as what happens with Esposito and Beckett after they quit the force. Hopefully we will get some mending of Ryan and Esposito’s friendship. Can’t wait for this one. The new season starts Monday, September 24 @10/9c on ABC.
