Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life’

I also wondered about the part in the last episode where the doctor tells Juliette that TN law requires her to tell the patient how far along she is. I checked with the Guttmacher Institute, and that is really true, so the kudos to the writers for getting that right. (It is the only "counseling" requirement in effect in TN. And another reason why we need to Vote No on 1, to keep the legislature from enacting more pointless requirements.)

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life’

The acting is great, as is the direction.

The scripts are generally well-written, though I have anticipated a few of the lines as well as the subplots a few times.

I would never have watched the program were it not filmed here but I have been hooked- until the Season Two finale. Remember, that episode was filmed before any commitment to Season Three, so the writers have been struggling ever since to find plausible plots after tying all of the (major) loose ends with the Season Two finale.

Oliver Hudson must feel creatively confined by his unidimensional character. Spoiler alert (not!): Jeff finds the cure for cancer in his spare time.

Photographs of babies at the abortion clinic? I think not.

I love Derek Hough (though not enough to watch DWTS. I wouldn't even watch when Samantha Harris, my second cousin once-removed, was on it).

Nashville fell a tenth to a 1.5 last night so, perhaps as I suggested earlier, the show has jumped the shark. (I'm not wishing that mind you: I've found work- love that overtime- as a paid extra during all three seasons.)

That perception was reinforced when the writers seemed to slip last night with Lennon Stella's character's acting out and having to learn an "adult" lesson regular viewers thought she had learned several episodes ago during a segment on Internet oversharing.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life’

I'm getting so tired of nothing actually happening on this show anymore. I loved the flashbacks in the last episode (was that 2 episodes ago?) but seriously, NOTHING HAPPENED in this episode!!!! Did they blow their wad when Rayna and Deacon got in the car accident? It's like they ran out of ideas and just keep moving the characters around like chess pieces in order to prolong the INEVITABLE Rayna/Deacon, Juliette/Avery and Scarlett/Gunnar reunions. Ugh. Soap operas are fine and all, but at least real soaps have five episodes a week to make stuff happen. I feel like I just sat through a five minute loop with just the characters changing. NO MORE NEW STUPID CHARACTERS.

I did think Charlotte Ross was an interesting obstacle for whatever episode she was on for ten minutes. Better than weaselly Derek Hough and cute but bland girl from Spy Kids.

Dammit, Luke Wheeler better show his true nefarious dark side pronto.

One good moment in this episode: Will gets some. Hooray!

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life’

Everything has become so embarrassingly transparent on this show. As FormerTennesseanReader says, it has always been a soap opera, but they have given up any and all pretense of the characters having any remotely human motivation. Everything they do is solely to set up some ridiculous conflict.

And I love the way they just unceremoniously dump any characters who aren't "sexy" enough, Tandy being the latest example. "What do we do with her?" "I don't know. We can't think up any way to get her in bed with anyone, so let's just have her move away!"

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘I Can’t Get Over You to Save My Life’

The show has become pure soap opera. Sure, it's always been mostly soap opera, but for the first year and a half they also dealt with some real music-biz-in-Nashville issues. But they decided to move away from any substance somewhere in the middle of last season and now everybody is a caricature of their real-life counterparts. Maybe that's what the viewing audience wants. I know I'm nowhere close to their target audience and the producers don't give a crack what I think, but I'm guessing it will also be the death of the show.
