Yeah, it's a soap, but at the same time, it doesn't seem as sappy and melodramatic as most soaps. Plus, there are a lot of things about this that still seem very realistic. I'm still enjoying it.

Julie Barnes and her addict mom are, thus far, the most compelling story.

Second most interesting might be whatshisface who ditched his band for a record deal.

One thing I thought unrealistic is Avery burning is master tapes. I am not involved in the recording industry, but I was under the impression that everything was being recorded digitally these days so that even if he deleted the master recordings there would have been digital backups. I guess having him be a computer hacker would be even more unrealistic.

Also, the whole thing with Lamar's heart attack didn't seem right. In the hospital, gets out of bed to yell at Watty, sedated, and then in for bypass? I will let those with a medical background opine if they care to.

Maybe we should say it is a soap operetta.

You're right on this one. I said right away that they would have the ProTools files on the computer (and backed up to an offsite storage). The whole idea of having a single storage containing the masters was ridiculous.

Still watching and enjoying it.

I must say that I enjoy the portrayal of a sober companion on "Elementary" a LOT more than I do the one on this show!

Evidently, the ratings for Nashville have taken somewhat of a plunge recently and while renewal is still predicted, it is no longer a shoe in. I would be bummed if it were cancelled.

TVByTheNumbers still shows it as "likely to be renewed," and a "renewal predicted" on their Bubble Watch chart.

Ratings for new episodes are still OK if not outstanding for ABC. The last new episode was April 11, and it got a 1.8/5 share, and the week before (April 4) was a 1.7/5 share.

The show doesn't repeat very well, which is somewhat to be expected.

I still enjoy it and I still like Scarlett.

Now that they have brought in Luke from the OC will they turn him and Gunar into a "Brooks and Dunn"?

Of course like any soap this suffers from the inevitable "if people would just talk to each other" syndrome. But they did solve the Scarlett/Gunar problem with the contract, at least he realized he screwed up.

I just wish there was more singing. "Fade Into You" is one of my favorite songs. And I guess Avery's solo at the Bluebird was ok, but it's mostly been snippets of pop country songs.

I'm *glad* there's not more singing. The last thing I want is this show to turn into Glee or Smash, where songs are seemingly wedged in just to sell music tracks and/or albums. So far, this show has shown a remarkable amount of restraint, featuring singing more or less when it would occur naturally.

I agree with you on that one. I'm not a fan of country music, but I can tolerate it on this show.

The producers have began warning residents in a Nashville neigborhood to expect some excitement next week in filming of the season finale.

The article might be considered a spoiler so be warned.

Guess links don't work in spoilers so just copy and paste.

At first I thought the musical numbers were amazing. But, it seems, they exhausted all of the good songs early on. The newest episodes have featured much less enjoyable music.

How about something in the middle? Like 1 song in its (modern, 2 minute) entirity?

I think bengalfreak is right. They had a bank of 4 decent songs, and writing new ones is hard and expensive. They even had her kids sing a Lumineers song.

I've never seen Smash and gave up on Glee, but isn't Glee all somebody else's songs? Is there anything written for Glee that's original?

Occasionally. I think they've done like 5 or 6 originals over the entire run.

A couple of weeks ago they did two original songs (I heard they were songs submitted to the It Gets Better Project, but can't confirm that.) I wasn't impressed by either.

A few years they did 4 or 5 full new songs (two each at Regionals and two at Nationals, plus Mercedes did "Hell to the no.") plus some partial new songs.

For Nashville, no song, to me, has been as good as "Wrong Song" from earlier in the season.

For me, my favorites have been Gunnar and Scarlet's songs, particularly "If I Didn't Know Better" (a Civil Wars song) and "When The Right One Comes Along" (a Striking Matches song). Yeah, neither were originals, but both were really good.

As janry pointed out earlier, a busy intersection in south Nashville will be closed from 5PM today until 5AM tomorrow for what the neighbors have been told will be a large explosion. Looks like the season will end with a bang.

Some sort of plane crash, I presume?

Oh, yeah! One thing I meant to comment on that I forgot. The rendering that was being presented to Teddy in his office of "Subway Field," the new baseball stadium he wants to build? It was clearly a photoshopped picture/rendering of Miller Park in Milwaukee.

The Nashville Sounds are a Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. Probably easy to get permission to use the picture.

Don't you feel some compassion for her? (Getting screwed over by Dante. Rough growing up with an addicted parent.) Yes, at times she is pretty horrible also.

BTW - I am finally comfortable watching Hayden Panettiere as Juliette. For a bunch of the season I kept doing a double take and thought "What is Claire Bennet doing on the show."

OK, the previews said that someone in the finale is "willing to kill". Are we taking bets?

I'm on Gay Cowboy (can't remember his name), or possibly Juliette's mom. My wife has her money on Peggy killing Rayna' dad. Basically, none of the main characters.
