Fans still line up to get her autograph, but she's not packing the arenas like she used to. Rayna's record label thinks a concert tour, opening for up-and-comer Juliette Barnes, the young and sexy future of country music, is just what Rayna needs. But scheming Juliette can't wait to steal Rayna's spotlight. Sharing a stage with that disrespectful, untalented, little vixen is the last thing Rayna wants to do, which sets up a power struggle for popularity. Could the undiscovered songwriting talent of Scarlett O'Connor be the key to helping Rayna resurrect her career?

The characters, the singing, the storyline... Its all so amazing. I cant wait to watch each episode!

Watched all 5 seasons in one week. It wasn’t without it flaws and dull moments, but watching it all it once, it all allowed me to have a wholistic experience. What I love about? The music. The drama. The romance. I loved how the storylines are wrapped up pretty quickly and not dragged with few exceptions; that allowed as to have an immense amount of issues and themes to explore. It touched me in more ways than I can explain. It made me cry. It made think about a lot of things. There were a lot of characters. I didn’t particularly hate any; each had it’s faulty side. Plus, there is a considerable amount of growth and development to appreciate. It didn’t hurt that we got a great collection of hot sexy artistic dudes too ;) It will forever be a TV show I won’t get tired of talking about. An easy 10, for having so much to offer.

Done deal: Nashville is *officially* heading to CMT for Season 5!

Fun and enjoyable series with a lot of music. But seriously, can EVERYONE sing in that town? xD I counted 2 main cast members that do not join in with the music, that's 90% pro or amateur singers. Is that really realistic?

avatar

Although I quite enjoyed the first season and love the songs, I just can't seem to get myself to start season 2. Next to this, characters are nice, cast is great, but lots of often-used 'drama' storylines. Basically, if you love drama, watch this show, if not, leave it.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
