NASHVILLE Debriefing: “I forgive you, but I still don’t trust you.” That’s it, that’s the show.

CHARLES ESTEN

There’s never a dull moment on Nashville. When people aren’t sleeping together or maneuvering against each other, they’re undergoing near-death experiences or battling it out over award nominations and surprise long-lost children! Tonight’s episode seems to be all about trust, and the consequences of breaking it.

Nels
Nels knew how to operate a TV remote control before she knew how to talk. As a result, she has spent an inordinate amount of time pretending she actually lives on a soundstage. When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.

Well, after a three week hiatus, I’m finally all caught up on Nashville, and not a moment too soon, because drama is the name of the game in country music, apparently!

Since we left off, there’s been baby daddy drama of all kinds, more love triangles nobody really cares about anymore (right?), some growing pains from girls young and old(er), and creepiness from everyone’s favourite sociopathic record label head. Good times, am I right?

This week on Nashville, our favorite messed-up country stars deal with the faltering record industry, bratty teenagers, incessant love triangles and unexpected pregnancies!

Last season, Nashville ended with a real doozy, blowing up the relationships we’ve come to know and love (and hate). Luke  proposed to Rayna — then so did Deacon. Juliette lashed out at Avery by sleeping with evil Jeff Fordham, because she is a self-destructive mess. Will fessed up to new wife Layla that he was gay, made all the more complicated by the fact that they’re living their lives on camera for a reality show. Then Scarlett decided she was going to start fresh after her mental breakdown by leaving town, and Maddie and Daphne proved they were smarter than all the adults in their lives by calling them out on their crap. So where does that leave us in Season 3?

Lots of booze, lots of tears, not as much singing and more longing gazes than you can shake a stick at! Oh, and a gimmicky live performance at the Bluebird by Charles Esten that’s sure to tug at the heartstrings.

Tuning In Tonight: 09/24/14

Nels: Hmm, things are starting to heat up on my DVR. I started watching The Middle this summer when it ran in syndication on one of my local stations, so I may tune in to its season premiere at 8 on ABC, just to see my favorite loveable nerd Sue Heck be her usual adorable self. I’ll be watching Red Band Society at 9 on FOX, and maybe even black-ish (which I’ve already reviewed) on ABC at 9:30 if I’ve got the time. Then it’s time for my guilty pleasure, Nashville, at 10 on ABC — I can’t wait to see what they do with Juliette’s story, or what the Stella sisters sing this week.

Cassidy: I’m watching the second episode of Red Band Society at 9 and then, I’ll tune in to watch the Big Brother finale at 10, even if the episode starts at 9:30. Here’s hoping I don’t miss that much in that first half hour. (And with BB16‘s finale my summer shows are officially done!)

Lucie:  I may tune into The Mysteries of Laura even though the premiere was extremely underwhelming. If it’s unbearable, I’ll switch to The Goldbergs on at a new night on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.  Count me in as another to watch Red Band Society while the PVR records Modern Family and black-ish.  I’ll be PVRing Nashville but will probably watch it live as well. But by that time at night, I’m using half listening while I’m settling down for bed. I can’t help it – I’m old.

We’re a couple of girls who really love TV, and we’re okay with that.

Fall 2014: What We’re Watching!

It’s hard to believe it, but the 2014-15 TV season is nearly upon us! We here at TYLL thought this would be a great time to talk about what we’re most looking forward to this fall. Join Nels, Cassidy and Lucie as we discuss what we’re tuning into in a few weeks.

Lucie closes out our series with her PVR-worthy picks for this fall! Expect lots of murder and mayhem with a dash of sass. (As if you hadn’t gotten enough of that from Nels and Cassidy‘s picks earlier this week.)

Lucie
Lucie was a classic 80/90s kid that grew up with the television as a babysitter. As she’s begrudgingly becomes an adult, she sadly can no longer enjoy television as mindless entertainment and subconsciously starts analyzing shows, specifically in the context of race and gender. She enjoys police procedural, strong female leads, and political dramas. She’s sarcastic and snarks a lot which may be mistaken for bashing, but it’s not…usually. She longs for the days where she can just watch TV and not parse it for subtext.

First on tap, here’s Nels with her thoughts on rookies Gotham, Madam Secretary and so much more!
