What I’m Watching: Nashville

Nashville: Season 2, Episode 3 “I Don’t Wanna Talk About It Now” (B-)

I’m not sure why I’m still watching this show, but it’s not as if its quality has changed so much since it first started. It’s all terribly soapy, particularly the plotline involving Avery and Juliette. He seemed far too offended by her referring to him as the hired help in front of a client, and she just doesn’t know how to avoid bad decisions, like kissing a man who hired her as a gift to his wife in the middle of the hallway while staying in his home. Juliette is determined to be all alone, and it’s not very pleasant to watch. Rayna, on the other hand, jumped right back into bed with Liam after deciding that Deacon isn’t right for her, and the only positive thing about that is he might be able to help her in her newfound battle with Jeff, which is getting uglier by the moment. Not being able to sing anymore is a big deal, but I’m sure that won’t last long. All of the drama with Will and Gunnar and Scarlett isn’t gripping, and it’s about time Gunnar stopped being a sad sack and scored a win. With no position of power, it makes sense that Coleman would leave town as a way for him to be written off the show. I just wish the same would happen with Peggy, who’s only going to wreak havoc on Teddy’s family life as she continues manipulating him into feeling connected to her and her fake baby.
