  1. The show could grow on you quickly because those involved are actually talented and engaging on- and offstage. One upside to Nashville is that it doesn't feel as staged as "Laguna Beach" or, in particular, "The Hills," a spinoff of "Beach."
  2. Many of its real-life characters display a lot of talent. They also are so transparent about their emotions, whether sincere or calculating, that their social interactions play more like a scripted soap on fast forward.
  3. It's clear that this new Fox original series has its class act together as it follows singers both on the verge or stardom and just starting out as they chase their dreams in the capital of country music.

    This show is slickly packaged and unchallengingly trite in its slavish reality-show construction.

    The show is as directionless as its stars.

    All the slick production values and some decent music in Nashville can't make up for these one-dimensional subjects, and their angst over their fledgling careers grows tiresome.
  7. 20
    Even if you're a shameless lover of "Laguna Beach" and its spinoff, "The Hills," you should probably avoid this country-flavored iteration of the semi-scripted reality soap formula. It's pretty doggone dull.

    I want to see more of Sarah! Who cares about Rachel and Mika and their high school feud over Clint? Who the heck is Clint anyway, and what I want to see more of Sarah! Who cares about Rachel and Mika and their high school feud over Clint? Who the heck is Clint anyway, and what does he know about country music or Nashville? He needs to borrow one of his dad's jets and fly to L.A. I do believe Sarah, Chuck, Jeff, and Matt are sincere. My bets are on those 4! Expand

    Super fun show. Inside look at how songs and singers get "made". All the cast are "characters" and I love them. Clint is genius as a girl juggler.

    Avoid at all costs. The pilot was boring and it looked more like a scripted drama. It looked unconvincing. The show looked as if it is lost Avoid at all costs. The pilot was boring and it looked more like a scripted drama. It looked unconvincing. The show looked as if it is lost and it doesn't have any known structure to it. The characters are just unconvincing and just is painful. Expand
