Nashville 2.03 Review: Sometimes Talking About It is the Best Thing

This is a warning. All those that have yet to watch Wednesday night’s episode of Nashville, entitled ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk About It Now’, then now would be a good time to exit your screen. This is not a spoiler free blog. THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! You’ve been warned.
Amongst all the other crap series that are being pushed out these days, this series is a gem. Along with fellow series like Revolution, The Blacklist, and a few others, this series is just beautifully done. The writing is tight, the acting superb, and the music is perfect for the tone of the show. Not only that, but the cinematography is also wonderful, particularly during Juliette’s concert for the Wentworth couple’s fifth wedding anniversary. Which reminds me about how much I love the clothes on this series as well. Juliette’s specifically are always fabulous, and quite fitting of her character.
I can’t recall if this show has explained it quite yet, but why did Raina name her label Highway 65? What was the significance? For the life of me I can’t remember, and every time it’s mentioned, I wonder. Also, whatever the significance, obviously it wasn’t big enough for me to remember that detail, you’d think I would.
As always, the characters were very well done in this episode. Aside from Juliette and Deacon’s progression, I particularly liked seeing Gunnar in this episode. Just the way he stared up at Scarlett, it was clear as day that he’s in love with her… It makes me wonder why I can’t have that. Also, can I just express how madly attractive Charlie Bewley, who played Charles Wentworth in this episode, was? Especially with that accent.
While I did see Charles making a pass at Juliette coming, though I thought it might’ve come sooner, this was still a great episode. Depth, emotion, character development, all in realistic ways. The only way a show can grow an audience is if the audience can relate in some way to one of the characters, even in just a small way. So I definitely think this series is doing quite well, and I look forward to future weeks. Although I really do hope Raina gets her voice back, it’s going to be rather tedious if she doesn’t.
My rating: 7.5 out of 10.

Best Lines:
“Where’s the bachelorette party?” – Scarlett questions Will, with excellently quick execution.
“Are you gonna tune it, or breast feed it?” Juliette asks Avery.
“I already made your afternoon.” Raina tells Liam, after he asks her if she’s going to make his night.

So, I got to tired last night to watch American Horror Story: Coven, and since I don’t have that channel, I’m off to watch that online and review it now. Otherwise, next is The Crazy Ones, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, and Grey’s Anatomy. I’m probably not going to get to The Vampire Diaries tonight, though. So expect that tomorrow night.
