Review: Nashville 1.07, 'Lovesick Blues'

At long last; the two main characters on ABC’s “Nashville” have collided.

Jonathan Jackson

Juliette (Hayden Panettierre) and Rayna (Connie Britton) are matched together at the label’s anniversary concert. Rayna brought her new producer Liam McGuiness, and Deacon Bishop also happens to be in the house band. The two women later start writing together, then successful perform the song to end the show.

Meanwhile, Juliette threw herself at Tim Te.. I mean Shaun Butler, but he wasn’t ready right then.

Teddy meets his mayoral opponent Coleman Carlisle (Robert Wisdom), who has incriminating photos of Teddy with Peggy. Coleman wants Teddy to drop out of the race, lest these photos get out. I still don’t really care, sorry.

Gunnar’s girlfriend Emily took Scarlet out to get her mind off of Avery (Jonathan Jackson). She spends the night dancing with a dude who looks like Jon Favreau circa 1995, while Gunnar watches like a big brother/ jealous suitor. Scarlet then caught Avery with Marilyn Rhodes, who later introduced him to bigwig Dominick King (played by, randomly, Wyclef Jean).

The show at least had a little more life to it with the Juliette/ Rayna conflict, which is what the show promised from the beginning. As long as that remains the focus, “Nashville” should be alright. Note: didn’t get to hear the preview for next week’s episode, as my ABC channel was showing the Power Ball drawing over it. Ugh.

Grade: B+

I was absolutely delighted when Gunnar was acting over protective of Scarlett out of jealousy. I really don’t like his girlfriend, so I’m looking forward to them breaking up. I didn’t get a chance to see the preview for next week since I have my DISH Hopper’s Primetime Anytime feature set to record the shows only. When I watched it, I even made sure to Auto Hop the commercials because I can’t stand the annoying commercials that seem to be longer than the show itself. From what one of the girls I work with at DISH said, next week is going to be faster paced because the drama factor is being turned up, and I can’t wait!
