I'm not a fan of reality shows, at least that's what I say. Survivor? I couldn't care less. American Idol? Pure drivel.
On the other hand I loved Project Runway, Top Chef, Bands Reunited and I'm crazy about a reality show coming to Fox this fall, Kitchen Nightmares (see review in an earlier post), so I'm not closed minded about the subject.
Nashville is a another new reality program coming this fall on Fox that follows a selection of largely talentless Kens and Barbies looking to make it big in the country music business.
It starts out with a load of hyperbolic nonsense - Nashville
"is a town that doesn't give second chances?" Since when does
a town give or not give second chances? Nashville is "a town that
can make you or break you?" No city can make or break you, sweetheart,
only you can do that for yourself.
Nashville lacks suspense, it's poorly edited, devastatingly cast and never moves an inch forward, just wanders around aimlessly. You're given absolutely no reason to care about any of these bubble-headed knobs. Insult me. Shock me. Repulse me. Toy with my emotions in any way you want but don't bore me. That's the kiss of death for a reality program.
This show has flop written all over it. Hell, Anchorwoman was infinitely more watchable than this watered down mush. I've stared at screen savers that held my interest longer.
I can't think of a single redeeming quality about this excruciatingly bland program (well, one of the guys does have an interesting jaw line).
Nashville debuts Friday, September 14th at 9:00pm ET on FOX but I wouldn't count on it being around for very long.
